Don't forget to wear them in! Even the most comfortable, taken-the-shape-of-your-foot shoes will give you blisters at first. But if they're not worn in at all (and for some reason there are people who buy new shoes 'just for the trip'), your feet will become the entire focus of your vacation.

Make sure they're non-slip! I'm a sucker for sandals, they're comfortable and easy to wear. Love them.

I was trekking for a few days in Thailand - in sandals. Nobody in my group had anything else. It's just too hot.

I wear the kinds of light blue on this website. http://www.kito.co.th/main.php They are all-purpose sandals, from hiking to diving. You look better in them than the bear-heeled ones when you go to some department stores or restaurant in the cities.

I have been having them for longer time than the previous one which were very famous brand, being imported and sold with very high price, but have lower quality.

Better come get them in Thailand, Jim. These ones have very nice prices. You wont' belive it!

Mr. Webmaster, I don't get any commission from the manufacturer, really! Just want to suggest good things to the members.

Hi Chada, what are the average prices of those shoes you recommended? Is there a store in Thailand where you can get them?

I just bought one pair for my friend yesterday, it was on sale at Baht 300 (about US$7.5). The full price at the tag is Baht 380 (about US$9.5).

The bear-heeled ones are about Baht 100 (US$2.5).

Yesterday, I got them from an outdoor night market near Lumpini. That webiste says you can find them in Carrefour, Siam Jusco, Makro, Robinson, Tesco Lotus, Big-C, Central, ...

Ah yes, the joys of purchasing shoes in South East Asia, especially locally made ones!
