Uniforms worn by the US Army

Soldiers who don the US Army Uniforms carry on the tradition of those who served in the army before them. The Army Values of loyalty, responsibility, respect, selfless devotion, honor, integrity, and personal courage are all embodied in US Army uniforms.

The Army Physical Fitness Uniform (APFU), which was introduced in 2013, is modular, with different sections that can be merged or removed depending on physical training conditions. The uniform consists of a track jacket, short- and long-sleeve T-shirts, track pants, and flexible running trunks, all of which are stylized in black and gold. On October 1, 2014, the uniform was released. Soldiers are merely required to acquire commercial running shoes because no standard shoe style is established. However, “toe shoes” (such as the Vibram FiveFingers running shoe) and shoes with profane or vulgar emblems are prohibited.
