Steel-toed Boots a Problem?

    I will be travelling alone to Indonesia and Malaysia in a few weeks. I always wear steel cap boots as I find them comfortable and I'm used to them, but my parents are afraid that I might get hassled by police while I'm over there. Has anyone had this experience or heard of this happening? I am not expecting that I'll be let into nightclubs with them on, so I'll be packing other shoes as well.


    A friend of mine from Singapore suggests that the boots would be uncomfortable because of the rain and the heat, so I was planning to use them only for travel between cities and for bushwalking.
    I'm reluctant to buy proper hiking boots as I don't think I'll have the time to find ones that are appropriate. I don't want to spend a lot of money now and get ones that won't be suitable.
