Shopping for Large Shoes

Posted by Whispy on 11/1/2012 at 01:08


I don't know if these forums are the right place to be asking this, but I thought I'd try.

Does anyone know a spot in Bangkok where you can buy large (US Size 14) shoes (sandals of a good quality, not something that will fall apart) for men?

I've also been cursed with big feet. Though, I can usually fit my feet snuggly into a size 45-46. Even those sizes can be difficult to find around Bangkok.

Usually, if you don't mind paying the full (normal) price, you can find bigger sizes at most of the Central Stores in the Sports/Shoes sections. A perk, even, is that many people in the area don't buy these bigger shoes; therefore, you can sometimes find a new, brand name pair at a discounted rate. I've found pairs of Nikes and Adidas - Size 12 - for around 1000B ($30) in the past.

Otherwise, you can take your chances at some of the outdoor markets. They will be much cheaper here, but it may be harder to track down a larger pair. If you go to Mo Chit station on the weekend, and then to Chatachuk Market, you may be able to track down a cheap, larger pair if you look around.
