I bought a pair on no name brands in MBK, a month later I had serious knee issues. I kept wearing them (onshore/offshore) for another 6 or so months until I was in Seoul where I found a pair of my favourite Mack boots.

Within a week my knees stopped hurting and I could climb stairs again without lifting myself up/down using the handrails.

Sorry, not sure where you can buy a good pair but I strongly recommend you don't buy any old pair, spend the $ and get the right ones.

Red Wing boots are pretty good.

According to their website they have a distributor in Thailand:

VPS Recreation Co. Ltd.

58 Vipawadee

True Value stores stock boots and other safety gear, not sure of the makes they have though but most of their stuff is imported from the US.

You jest, but quite few years ago I worked on a chinese construction barge for the client and all the deck crew would wear flip flops on deck while working and where most upset when I told them to buy safety boots/hard hats/safety glasses for the crew.... :D

Soutpeel, I ccurently have some Kings boots, these replaced my well worn Mack boots, ive only been wearing them since January the 4th and not only are my feet possessing a really rancid smell my legs are aching badly..... I need to import some decent boots (or fly to Singapore to purchase another pair of Macks).

Ive tried redwings in the past, my legs/feet did not like them either.

Redwings are murder on your feet until they are broken in.....blisters on your feet and ankles expected... :)

I currently have thing for Kings, usually replace mine every 12 months, cant say I have had a problem with a smell or aching legs from them, the first week or so with a new pair of Kings usually get a blister on both ankles, but once broken in they are ok...
