Work boots in Bangkok?

Hi,

I am assuming there are quite a few shops in Bangkok that would sell work boots like these.



Are they easy to find? Are they for sale for under 3,000 baht?

I need a new pair and was going to buy them here before going to Thailand but space is such a premium at the moment I could save a lot of room if I can buy them in Bangkok.

I must be honest, I have never seen any decent workboots there. Had a look round myself to see if there was, but to no avail. They probably are around somewhere, but I would think very expensive

I brought my work boots over from Australia, genuine Blundstone too- not one of those cheap knock-offs.



Now, up in Isaan where you have a decent winter and proper mud, they will be useful. Around here however, they just went into a storeroom (along with my old business shoes) and sat there for a couple of years.

And came out like this-



I walked around in them, and wife noticed I was leaving a trail of black everyhere, much to her consternation. The outer soles were disintegrating, the rubber had obviously perished- so I guess these things weren't designed for the tropical humidity & heat. Or at least not if you also leave them to rot for a couple of years.

Anyway, they're damn good boots- I'll have new outer soles put on them. Strange really, I wore them almost every day in Oz for three years in all sorts of conditions- they last forever. But a bit of tropical neglect soon rooted them.

I've not seen Blundstones or similar for sale here unfortunately- Somchai prefers thongs to work boots.

We as a company buy hundreds.

I can ask where we purchase.

I'd guess we get discount, I could see if I can buy pairs through the company for personal use.

I don't think they are cheap though.

i'll look into it.

I'm afraid not, I don't believe Global has a website, I can drop buy later when they are open and get some more info for you.

Wow, that is extremely generous of your time both PP and BC, thank you very much.

Please don't go to too much trouble because as a back up I just remembered that I could get my brother (space permitting) to bring a new pair over for me.

Great story and pics! I am surprised as you are that the disintegrated without use so quickly in Thailand. I have friends who wear Blunnies all the time in tropical North Australia and they dont have any problems.

You can buy CAT boots here in Pratunam, but I'm not sure if CAT are very hard wearing as they seem more of a fashion item than a genuine work boot.

I have not really seen anyone where construction boots here. Especially not steel toed bouts.

Yesterday I saw a Thai crew working on a bridge pillar and I only saw them wearing flips.

Safety first!!!

Apparently there is only one company that supplies construction workboots. And the quality are crap. I buy like 40 pairs every year for my staff. Mind you a pair costs like TB300.

Marmers, do you mean these type of cat boots?

They do look a bit showy that's for sure, not really my style.

How many staff do you have? (ie, how long do they last)?

Homepro have safety boots/shoes for sale - no idea bout the price or quality, though.

I had to buy a pair in a hurry about 8 ago - picked up a good pair at the Emporium deparment store of all places (shoe section). They were pricy (didn't really care as I was imbursed all costs by my company) and very good quality - I still use them today whenever I go offshore.

We have access to red Wing boots at about 8000 THB, but the buyers tell me we have a whole catalogue with various companies and prices available here.

Apparently I have to go and collect the catalogue to look.

I'll try and do it this afternoon and provide you details of what where and how.

Do they look similar to the pic in the first post or are they those flashy work/look at me type of boots?

Sounds good to me, I only need them for a few weeks at a time chopping down trees in Laos. Are they available retail anywhere and do they look anything like the pic in the opening post?

Crikey, I should have read Bobcocks answer first - thanks so much for going to the trouble, I will look through all those links now.

Cheers!

Nah - they are all black, laced, low type shoes - not boots and actually don't look much like work shoes at all. They are steel capped, with good heel/ankle protection, but they could almost be used for office wear. They looked something like this:

I can find the brand name if you are interested, although in the 8 years since I bought them, I am sure there are better/cooler types out there.

Nope, it is a plain black boot. Possibly the same boots prisoners wears.
