Travel Forums Travel Gear Bangkok/Hanoi - can i get cheap trainers/sneakers?

RTW for 8 months - so need a good comfortable pair of sneakers/running shoes. However I don't want to pay the £70 it would cost me here in the UK if i can get them for cheaper when i arrive in SE Asia.

Does anyone know how much cheaper i could get a decent pair for? and where in Bangkok or hanoi?

I seen somebody was trying to advertise the replica's on here not too long ago....unfortunately, the crude advertising got me thinking....:)

Thanks

Hi Darren7,

Easy to get inexpensive sneakers/running shoes in BKK - just don't expect them to be the same quality as the real deal ;)

Bought some replica CAT shoes on Khao San road once and they were definitely not made of goretex

ah crap, really? may as well just pay the £70 for them over here then! don't really want them falling apart on me after i buy them in SEAsia!

falling apart's not the issue; it's more about lacking ventilation, which IS an issue - think about heat and humidity and figure out the consequences
