Running shoes in thailand?
28th December, 2013
I am curious what to bring for footwear to Thailand. Only bringing a 40L pack and have some flipflops and Aasics running shoes right now. Will this be sufficient? I would like to workout during my travels so I figured a running shoe would be appropriate. They are black, will this be a problem in that climate? Should I opt for Nike Free's? (they are a bit lighter in weight and can get bright colours, probably more packable).
Will likely want to do some hiking in Chang Mai, etc. I have size 14 feet so buying abroad is generally a problem I would guess. Thanks!

Black running shoes are fine.
I think it would be near impossible to find size 14 shoes in the stores in South-East Asia. So you better bring along what you need.
I wear my running shoes when I travel (bus/airport). My flipflops and sandals are in my pack because they take up less space

I bring a pair of running shoes and flip flops when I travel. Running shoes have always done the trick for me when hiking.

The Nike Free's are great for travel because they are light weight, breathable, dry easily and can be compressed without damaging them.
Those and some flip flops and you're all good.

Go the light runners. U cant even find size 12 in most stores. Thai hikes arent hardcore so runners r fine.
