    Wanted: Good damn combat boots

    I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me where Dr. Martens are sold in Thailand.

    Or

    Is there a place to buy high-quality combat boots in larger sizes (UK11 US12). I'm just looking for something durable, comfortable, and can pass for dress shoes (nice shine).

    The Docs I am wearing now have finally reached the end of their long, long life and will soon be unwearable after 20 years and 2 resoles. Talk about my money's worth!

    I bought my Mrs a pair in a shopping mall in Pattaya, can't remember the name but just to let you know it is possible!

    Maybe go to a big mall and ask around?

    BTW, they were the real deal.

    Thanks, all! I've been reading that for a few years now Docs upper is sewn in Thailand and sole is made in China. But I'm confident they haven't changed the recipe. Best boots I've ever had.

    The old world trade centre. (forgot what they call it now)

    I would also think that Siam Square would have some shops that sell them

    Any word from Korat residents? Much closer to me than Pattaya. Bkk is max. Looks as if I'll be taking a special trip.

    They look a bit out of place with a skinhead, white t-shirt, red braces and bleached jeans

    Walk around untill you see someone wearing a pair you like. Invite them to your place, then just send the missus out to nick 'em from off the doorstep, then graciously offer to sell the victim a replacement pair of cheap sandals at an over inflated price.

    TRy Chatuchak, if not try the interweb if you've had a pair before and know your size.

    Cheers

    On the 304 from Korat, after Pak Thong Chai there are a couple of shop selling military gears by the road side. I bought a pair of army boots for less than 300 B. Not the latest fashion but to work in the field I'm quite happy with them. It seems to be the real thing.
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do
