Visit a police uniform store. They have lots of shoes that look like military plain toes, but are virtual tennis shoes without looking like them.

I did something different to mine. Undid the bottom cover of the shoulder board at both ends, then glued a single brass ribbon bar to each end. Pulled the cover back, popping the nails through it, then sewed the bottom cover back. Took 15 minutes to do two shoulder boards. Then Iíd just pin them onto the epaulettes, using the clutch backs.

A closer working relationship with the army would make sense. Army aviation is quite large. There is also an army National Guard unit in every community.  I bet a CAP airplane would have lots of uses for these units.
Below is an example of how a CAP airplane was used as a mock air support aircraft for National Guard training.

As well as reacting to direct and indirect fire, they also used simulated air support from a Civil Air Patrol airplane supporting the exercise to suppress the enemy. http://www.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/580855/new-york-army-national-guard-aviators-train-with-air-guard-close-air-controller/

I recall sewing little metal snaps onto the epaulets and gluing same onto the boards. But it has been 40+ years, so my memory may be faulty.

That used to be they way we did it, until velcro came along.
You are saying I am old, right? (Sigh, and I had no clue. Velcro?)

I had to press the adhesive on them then sew them other wise when I would get promoted And run the risk of pulling the vilco off with the cap shoulder boards. My Velcro also didint stick well to the epaulets the first time around so when I made 2nd Lt (part 2) the cmdr took the shoulder boards and all even un pinned the epaulets

I remember sewing the snaps onto the shirt without epaulets.

Really enjoy my Rockports. Comfy, can walk for miles and still look 'dressy enough'. Works great for the polo & gray slacks.

I just achieved TMP, doing my Form 5 wearing zip-up tactical boots per the Corporate uniform.  They made rudder work a bit of a pain.

Can we wear any black tennis shoes and still comply with the corporate uniform?
No.

BBDU (this is actually what the reg says... bad editing):
Quote
5.2.1.7. Footwear. Socks black shoes or booand black combat boots are mandatory with this uniform.

Polo:
Quote
5.2.2.6. Footwear. Black socks (white socks may be worn with boots) and any plain black shoe, boot or combat boot are required with this uniform (see paragraph 6.4.4 (Male), 6.4.5 (Female) and 6.4.3 (Combat Boots)

I donít see anything there to support your answer. Just says black shoes or boots.

No.
What shoes do you experienced Mission pilots wear?
Most just wear boots or normal uniform-compliant street shoes.

Those Lyft flying shoes look pretty practical. Can we change shoes during preflight into non - approved footwear?  For safety sake?
No.
