    I was made medically unfit due to wearing insoles, after an appeal it’s been over turned. I wear off the shelf insoles, recommenced by a specialist, when I get to recruit training will I be able to wear these?

    Yes, as long as you can wear service issue, unmodified footwear.

    Be aware however that in doing so, you are effectively declaring a pre-existing issue which could result in NFA Med discharge if you incur related injuries in the first 56 days of recruit training.
