If you don't find what you need in UTH, there's a great shop east of BKK and the Motorway well away from the hassle of traffic that sells a huge selection of Safety Jogger brand steel toe shoes and boots.

Mine have been going strong for at least 5 years. Still in great shape.

A huge temple and Thai restaurant are directly across the street.

They carry very large sizes in stock, too.

Went to both homepro and tool pro.
Only have the cheap boots and would not stand up to heavy long time use. Up to 1300 bht. Sizes are not all there and mostly small.
There was a shoe shop in Premium Outlet with what looks good quality boots. Ranging from 4200 down to 2500bht. Will drop back tomorrow and try some on.
Next i will try, is I think there is a Timberland in Central.

Steel toe caps? High ankle lace up miners boots? All this if for yard and farm work?

Really?

There's a Red Wing agent down Sri Racha way.

Tam, I did not know there is a Redwing agent here, do they hold good stock or they just order in?, think I am in the same line of work as you so I have this question, do they have FR there or again can order in?, the redwing shop here in Mexico orders everything in, it was quicker for me to send from the US :). thanks Pete.

^ The Red Wing rep is a company called Leeden used to be on Highway 3 near where the Laem Chabang port entrance is. Looking at their new website, they may have relocated a bit.

Last time I spoke with them was about 3 years ago. They had a limited but decent range in stock but if there was anything on the catalog they didn't have, they'd order it up for you. Prices were accordingly Red Wing-ish ++. They didn't have what I wanted and since my needs were minimal, I went with local purchase.

If your looking for a steel toe boot or shoe, and want it quick and cheap...
As you pass Home Pro, turn left at the light...down the road about 1/4 meter , on the right. A big 2nd hand shop.
Go to the back. I bought a pair of Colemans boots there about 6 yrs ago, @300tb, and steel toes, are about 200-500tb.
If Tamada enters my post, with negitive stuff, just disregard him...he needs attention....we should pray for him.

Classic one maaka,
Must get some encouraging looks when you have to take the gummies off for the security X-ray.
But I’m sure the immo officer was just thinking that, finally the message has got through and this is the hiso touro thailand have been waiting so long to get.

no sheep poo's Mate, we breed bulls..they were new gummies as the plastic ones they make here didnt hack the pace. However the NZ rubber ones dont like the sun, so have to update regular like..was luggage was way overweight and gummies take up alot of space so wearing them seemed like the easiest thing to do..The Customs dude even checked my finances upon seeing the boots before letting me in..learnt me lesson

Another place for work boots - MR DIY in Central. But almost certainly cheap. Not an expert just know they are there.

Ya cant go cheap with work boots, your feet are in them for 8 to 12 hours per day, must be quality, hence Robinson's. No change out of 6,000 baht.
