There's a shop in summit that sells hiking shoes/sandals/boots. Good things, most probably doesn't come with cheap price smile.gif I think the name is Nomad Adventure. I bought my teva sandals there.

Hi...hi...Nomad is no longer in Summit Gym. They have moved. Check their website for a number, call them for directions.

Neorelated4...can you share with us where you plan to use your hiking boots for? Depending on the usage and the place you are going, the boots makes all the difference. If you are expecting long walks, like goping backpacking, a pair of runners would be your best best. No need for boots.
If you plan to do trekking in Malaysian forest, you best bet would be jungle boots. Forget about those waterproof boots with goretex lining and such because they simply do NOT work in our climate. They are not designed for our climate and forest!

Unless you are going to Nepal or some cold climate countries, then you can consider paying more for proper boots. Mind you, they do NOT come cheap. Some can range from RM300 to RM900.

Let us know what you want to use the boots for and where. We would probably be able to give you a better recomendation. You can see the link below on a few suggestions for our Malaysian jungle.

Best regards,
KEONG

Aiyah, you just missed the raya sales in Jusco, Mid Valley. They were clearing Hitec hiking boots, up to 50% discount. If you are not in a hurry then wait for the Deepavali sale. You can try Jusco, Mid Valley or the World of Sport in Bangsar Village. I bought mine there during one of their sales, 50% off RM399.

Hi...if I may, I suggest you consider keeping away from sales that gives 50% on any type of shoes. All type of shoes have a shelf life. This means they will actually expire. They are said to expire because their strength of the glue, the cushion would have weaken considerably. You can buy but do not expect it to last very long.

I am not suggesting you go and buy a 'new' pair at a new price. I am suggesting you find out what you want to use the boots for and then only decide what's best for you.

Coming back to 50% sales...consider this...do you think they will give you such big discounts for no reason?

keong are you a passion hiker? I just bought a Salomon shoe but I think its more of a running shoe on rough terrain . I think for hiking on a dense jungle, its best to have a boots .
Now i began to see the difference of terrain and the shoe we must have .

I think if not a mountanous path, a boot is unnecessary such as the terrain in FRIM , Kepong.

So Keong , any recommendation for hiking in Selangor?

Maybe it's dumb luck for me then. I got mine back in 2006 and they are still good. Went backpacking everywhere with them. No problem, includes a 40-day trekking/backpacking trip to Nepal. nod.gif

Hi syd04...

I don't thinks its dumb luck for youhttp://www.learning-adventures-malaysia.com/. I think you may have bought the right pair for the right use.

My statement before is just from my personal experience (and a few more of my friend's).

Hi hackwire...

I still do a bit of walking in the Malaysian bush from time to time. Stamina very low these days.

I heard good things about Salomon shoes. I also heard (and seen) them come apart on some Malaysian jungle treks.
I agree with you that boots in easily accesible places like FRIM is unnecessary.

In Selangor, places like Pangsoon is popular.
I normally go in small groups. Our passion is not really in the walking itself (its tiring!!) but in appreciating the jungle, its beauty, learning from it and of course getting away from the madness of the city.

Best regards,
KEONG

I did made some research on hiking shoes lately and i found a few good shoes from Salomon , colombia or TEVa website which we are not able to get it here yet. Some were meant for rivers and rough terrain together which is suitable for our malaysia jungle.

The goretex shoes were meant for outdoor running and not suitable for trekking in a dense jungle but suitable for FRIM hiking.

I think if really want to be equip in long jungle walk, must have at least 2 shoes in the bag. One is dry with traction and protective material and another for wet such as the Duck Shoe or Agua Type material. Basically , one shoe cannot do both at the same time.

Sandal Shoes with holes are best use in the beach or waterfall rocks ;

that's my research. correct my mistake if there is any keong.thanks

Hi hackwire,

You did well researching for all those information. Well done.

I am sharing with you this information from personal experience. So, please bear in mind that ultimately its your choice.
I will never carry a water proof shoes with me into Malaysian hjungle. I find them totally useless. Yes, I will have two pair of shoes with me BUT it will be my jungle boots OR the adidas kampung and a slipper or sandal. The boots/ adidas kampung for my walking/ trekking. It doesn't matter if it gets into river cause that is what it is for. The sandal/ slipper I will use only around campsite. To cool the feet, let it dry and rest. Sandals may not give you enough ankle support, especially when moving fast or descending slopes.

I honestly (and personally) think that a lot of the famous shoe brands out there are not really suitable for our environment. They may claim that their products are waterproof, breathable, amphibious etc but I doubt if they really put it to test (in actual Malaysian jungle). Jungle boots are proven since the British army set-up the SAS in Malaya!

All in all, I think what your research found is true. Consider also that the websites you visited maybe trying to convince you that their products is suitable for what you are looking for. They are after all trying to sell.

Thanks & best regards,
KEONG

Thanks keong. the advise is taken. it's a simple solution for tackling the malaysian jungle.
I think the americans product meant for comfortability and made for dry land mostly. One of the biggest challenge is to keep our feet dry at all times and also safety. The green fabric boots somehow does not provide a good ankle support but those heavy duty one like the SWAT one has better tension.

The addidas kampung shoe i never seen this b4 but can it protect the feet from a sharp object poking through?

Hi Hackwire...

Agree with your statements above. Someday, if we have time, we should met up and you can have a look at my boots. Can't help but say its quite cool really, though not the most comfortable one can get.

Adidas kampung is cheap-as. Price range from RM5 to RM10, depending on where you get it. And no, it does not provide any good support that you'd expect from a pair of shoes. Its funny that with this (major) downside, it is still one of the most popular jungle shoes among the local. Probably because it is soft and almost 100% non water absorbent.

Oh...the SWAT shoes. I think you may be refering to the Hi-Tec magnum. Two things about this shoe. First, they are almost 80% fakes in Malaysia. Its almost impossible to get an original pair of this highly acclaimed boots in Malaysia. Secondly, I think many forces have changed their preferences to another brand. I think I will stay away from mentioning the brand. People will think I am trying to sell then tongue.gif

Cheers,
KEONG

Hi Adrian Khoo,

I have not been there. Jogging shoes, unless they are made for trail running may not give you the 'grip' you need when you want to navigate slopes especially. Flat land walk is fine.
Yes, those rubber shoes are your best bet. You cannot go wrong with them.

Hi Adrian,

Adidas Kampung...most hardware shops in the outskirts of Klang valley would have them. Hardware shops that supplier goods to rubber tappers, agriculture industries in general.

There are a few shops in Chow Kit, near the Chow Kit MONORAIL also sells them.

Or the Pasar Malam near where I live. Opposite Piramid, near the BP station, every Wednesday nites.

Hope that helps.

Hi...see it at the link below smile.gif
Enjoy your trip!

Oh...but for Kinabalu, I think its better you stick to a pair of comfortable walking shoes. The terrain is not that difficult but loooong hours of walking.

Yup, adidas kampong (AK) is a good bet for those with shallow pockets. Forget hi-tech expensive Teva, The North Face or Timberland ... these are designed by people who sit in the office whole day. The AK is standard wear for many Orang Asli living in jungle fringe but of course there are people who think they are too crude and doesn't offer enough protection.

First of all, I don't think many people has the opportunity to trek deep jungle. At least not around KL. At most, people walk along waterfall, secondary forest, FRIM, or national park trails which are scrubbed and sanatized by thousands every year. So, what is there to protect against? It's just a walk in the park. Any shoes will do. Even Mt Kinabalu is just an uphill trail that's fair and open.

Now, if you are winging jungle dense trails of Mt Korbu or Mt Yong Yap, that's a whole new story because then you have to worry about all-terrain footwear and climate proof gears. In hardcore trekking, of course AK is inadequate. You need something like the Malaysian Army trekking boots; Pertama Komplek has good selection. Although they are heavy and one need good stamina to trek in them, they offer the best protection against thorns, rutty path and to a certain extend snake bites.

That said, how comfy is the shoe wear would take the back seat when millions of leeches are ready to throw a party at your feet. So, leave some thought for a good pair of leech socks.

Don't go for Euro or US made body or footwear if the Malaysian rainforest is your playground. They don't understand the conditions here enough to design a proper wear. However, if you are thinking of The Alps, Annapurna or Matterhorn, then their snow and cold wear can save lives. Cheers.

Not to mention Army boots needs getting use to or it would cause you blister all around if not paired with good socks.
During the teen days, we used to candle wax the "air holes" to make it "waterproof"....
Think I still got mine stacked somewhere back in my hometown.

Hmm...I thought the air holes are there are to allow wter and air to pass through the boots. Allowing ventilation to your feed. That will reduce the risk of trench foot.
In the Malaysian jungle, I think the only things worth keeping dry is your shelter, electronics and lighter smile.gif

Hello, I'm going to tibet in July for backpacking about 2 months, but when I went to shops, they all recommanded all those hi ended boots which is very pricy. I wonder if I really need to buy that? What do you recommand.

Hi neoks...

Wow...Tibet sounds awesome mate! I have not been there but I think the below guidelines can help you decide.

What is temperature like? If cold, maybe you need a pair with good insulation BUT not necessarily Goretex and like. You may wanna look at good socks rather.

Will you be doing a lot of trail trekking or on proper roads? If its only roads, you may not need those heavy and heavy duty boots. They are an overkill.

Prices of good shoes are very expensive in M'sia. If you have the opportunity, try visiting Singapore. The prices may be just the same but they may give you more choices and with more choices, comes better decision making.

By the way, whatever it is, you must get the shoes early, walk and season them. The sooner you 'break-in' these shoes, the less chance it will hurt your feet. Which ultimatelly means a more comfortable and enjoyable trip to Tibet smile.gif

Have a good trip!

I bought my Hitec Vector WP (low cut) two years ago for RM150++ (after 50% discount). It has Vibram sole & waterproof upper. It got me thru my 6-month DPA course, during which we climbed 3-peak Gunung Bintang in Kedah, & thru 2 weeks of training at OBML. I still have those shoes, & I was really grateful that I had it during those trekking/climbing days. But I guess U can buy those branded shoes, as long as U know what U're looking for & dun just go by the recommendations of the salesperson. tongue.gif

Hi Tenno...agreed. I would say that you are lucky to have your hi-tec lasted you that long. I have a friend who's 'waterproof' hitec lasted only 3 weeks after using it a couple of days in heavy rains.
He swore never to buy hi-tec.
Then again, perhaps he is just too unlucky.

But I agree...don't just believe too much in what the sales person recommends.
Speaking of recommendations, I personally prefer Merrels. Again, its a personal choice smile.gif

But I agree...don't just believe too much in what the sales person recommends.
Speaking of recommendations, I personally prefer Merrels. Again, its a personal choice smile.gif

True that man. At least Merrels, North Face & Hitec are true hiking brands la. Timberlands are just way overpriced & I just can't imagine anybody wearing it for hiking, even though it markets itself as an outdoor brand.

Personally...I will not recommend anyone to buy Hi-Tec shoes.
The models they produce these past few years are good looking but the quality is seriously un-desirable.

I have a friend who bought one pair a year back if not mistaken during sale and the sole came off just after two weeks of use.

I strongly suggest you consider Merrel. They are one of the most under rated shoes in Malaysia. Popular in the US.

Even Bear Grills from Man VS Wild (though I still think he is careless) wears Merrel on some of his episodes.

Merrel is available at Royal Sporting House and similar chain of stores.

p.s I am not affiliated in any way with the stores or with Merrel. However, I am a VERY happy user of Merrel products.

If you're not an avid climber (like myself) and see yourself only climbing say every other month, Power has some quite ok shoes for the cheap. I got mine for RM60 and it lasted me for 6 climbs (KK, Nuang x2, Tabur x2, and one more place I can't remember the name. Broga not counted, that one wear slippers also can -.-") before the sole started to come out, and that was due to my foot getting stuck in some roots, nothing that cant be fixed by a bit of sewing.

I can't seem to find them any more though, but Bata has some others that are only RM70.

As for Adidas Kampung, if you frequent Old Klang Road there's a place that has them, and you can call to ask for your size.
http://electronicfly.blogspot.com/2008/11/...as-kampung.html

I do not recommend them though unless you're either pain-resistant or quite used to the track, as although it is practically waterproof and soft, it's TOO soft and won't offer any protection, plus you're bound to hurt your feet since it has no padding whatsoever

-------

Anyone would like to recommend something below RM150? Nuang's the hardest I've been to (and plan to go again, haven't reached the top yet cry.gif ) and I'll need something that doesn't require constant use to maintain (e.g. wear once then keep in cupboard for a month, repeat)

(Ok, out of topic but since someone above talked about headlamps, DON'T get the one from Ace Hardware if you plan to use it more than once. I got that for my KK climb and it drained my batteries kao kao. Used it only for the final ascent, and about 5 minutes again when my hostel I was staying in had no electricity for a while, then POOF batteries died. Get the Energizer on instead. RM60/80 for the headlamp + 4 AA batteries. My sis used it for who knows how long d and still shining bright without changing batteries)

-------

P/S: Cheapest and easiest to find way to leachproof yourself: PANTYHOSE. 100% works, but damn bloody hot one!

the adidas kampung shoes has good grip but u have to get a good sole padding so that ur feet won't ache. Watson and other pharmacies sell quite good sole paddings, try getting the silicon type, though not cheap smile.gif.

i got the Admiral hiking boots from jusco and tried it at Gunung Angsi few weeks ago, it's the ankle-high boots, very good grip too, especially when going downhill, but a bit too heavy for a girl like me when going uphill la tongue.gif. My guy friend bought the same boots and wore it to Mt K last weekend, good grip on the rock slopes towards the peak...

finally, i decided to get a hiking shoes from New Balance, also have good grip, and most importantly they have cuttings for ladies biggrin.gif.

P/S: i will be keeping to my NB hiking shoes and want to sell my Adidas Kampung and Admiral hiking shoes. PM me if interested, but haven't had time to post a WTS thread yet, just came back from Mt K. Awesome!

I just bought a POWER branded hiking shoes, with discount voucher. Im not an avid climber with low cash to spare:) the first time i climb Mt KK was with a nike sneakers and it hold up just fine at the moment. I definitely will not use it again as it might not hold up the second time around.

I think most hiking shoes will hold up for a few times regardless what brand you buy cheap or expensive.....IF ure not a frequent climber like me and if budget is a concern, just go get any brand you can afford, and improvise it to become comfortable for you namely insoles and whatever......but if youre rich and your mind always wanted the best, by all means go for the most expensive as those technology will definitely help alot....in your mind that is:)

i look at the porters climbing mount kk with ease, with fake crocs, sandals and stuff, so you guys go figure lor.......if they can do it, then its all in your mind:) my 2 sen:) sorry if offended, no harm intended

thanks. ^^

Hmm, if that is so, better get a good pair of boots (good grip, waterproof, yes). Also don't forget altitude sickness medicine. And tie your backpack close to your body (it distributes the weight better). Be prepared for temperature extremes as it can fluctuate pretty crazily. Some of the stuff I learned while hiking the Inca trail in Peru 2 years back (similiar conditions to Tibet, but maybe perhaps a little lower in altitude)

smile.gif I have climbed Nuang once and it was torturous as I was not fit. I managed to reach the top though. During the descend I noticed that the guide's shoes has no problem gripping mud (it was raining). Their soles were like football studs. I was wearing a Teva XPD watershoe with 'Spider Rubber' soles. They were nice when it was dry but when it gets muddy it was slippery. Watershoes means there are ventilated mesh at the base where water can flow out when stepped into pudddles but it also allows mud to flow in. When the mud flows out the sandpaper like sand remains inside and grinds your sole till it blisters. I was not wearing socks! I should have.

Anyway for those who are interested in the Tevas, there a few more pairs available in BB Plaza, 3rd floor. It is in one of those bundle shops. This is just old stock and not used ones. I got it for a bargain for RM100. You have to get the soles sewed to the shoes by a cobbler though as the adhesive is dry but other than that RM100 for a pair of new Teva is a bargain.

Running shoe is diff from hikingh shoe. The sole of running shoe having less grip & abit dangerous for mountain climbing & even inside forest.

Get those wth thick sharp of cross-v0-shape designed soles such as these:

Good Lord...don't even bother. You don need those kind of hi tech shoes to climb KK. Its all gimmick to make you spend money.
KK is not really technical. I know people who did it in Adidas Kampung!

Then again, that doesn't mean everyone can do it that way. Wear a pair of shoes that you are comfortable with. The trail to KK is marked, clear and mostly steps. You need a sturday and comfy shoes but you don't need a RM600 pair of shoes.

Locally, you can try Merrell. Merrell are so under rated. They are really good shoes and value for money.


Good luck!


p.s I have nothing to do with Merrell...just a use who is extremely satisfied with them, especially not needing to pay RM600 for a pair of shoes!!

Went to check out Merrell, it design are normally 'slim'. Always saw it on Royal Sporting House warehouse sales.
I also went and check out Columbia, reasonable priced. What you think?

Hi-tec is also underated IMO. It's value for money... I meant Hi-tec.
Merrell, hardly see any half-cut or full cut boot on M'sia.

Else, you can try Solomon also which is meant for trail running.

Jimmyay...maybe you can do a review for us all with the boots.

My money is still with Merrell. They are no fuss shoes. Most of the models uses Vibram soles.

Hate to say this but Bear Grylls of Man VS Wild uses them (Merrell) on quite a few of his episodes.

I agree with you tongpoh. Good grip is important for shoes for most outdoor use.

But sometimes we have to stop and ask ourselves why do we depend so much on these 'brands' (including Merrell).
Our ancestors and even to this day those people who work in rubber estates, or walk in the jungle hunting for animals go either in Adidas Kampung and some bare feet!

No, I am not suggesting that we go bare foot but just that often times (myself too actually) we get carried away with brands with the newest design and 'market claims'. We tend to overlook local knowledge.

If one is to traverse the glaciers of New Zealand, go ask a Kiwi what one should wear. Same goes... if we are to use it in our own backyard, maybe we should ask what the locals (Orang Asli included) use.

We can have the best shoes and gear but at the end of the day, it is still up to each person's capability whether he/ she is going to make it to the top.

In any case, just to let you know, I have used Inov-8 products before. But some time back they went quiet. Can't find them in KL anymore. Not sure if they are back here again though smile.gif

I agree with you tongpoh. Good grip is important for shoes for most outdoor use.

But sometimes we have to stop and ask ourselves why do we depend so much on these 'brands' (including Merrell).
Our ancestors and even to this day those people who work in rubber estates, or walk in the jungle hunting for animals go either in Adidas Kampung and some bare feet!

No, I am not suggesting that we go bare foot but just that often times (myself too actually) we get carried away with brands with the newest design and 'market claims'. We tend to overlook local knowledge.

My first hash shoes is Asics trabuco 13, very good cushion= roll ankle, muddy terrian= no grip, second was Brook casiada 5, grip a bit better than Asics, 3 pair was New Balance MT100 bought from China, good for trail but no for our jungle, 4 pair was kampung adidas, better than Asics,NB,and Brook, 5th pair is barefoot, if not raining, i run barefoot, better than any shoes i have before but muddy terrains will slip so i keep braking when downhill, now i using Inov-8 X talon, good grip and flexible to step on tree roots because of it sticky rubber. So if you have money, go Inov-8, if you want to save money, go kampung adidas.

smile.gif I think branded shoes have their merits but their best quality will be their aesthetics. Cheaper shoes also serves their purpose and maybe they won't last. That's is off course, my opinion. Shoe soles like car tyres also needs to fit to the terrain they are designed for. Who is the best in these department, our army. I don't think they use spider rubbers or vibrams etc.

Once I was hiking up a mountain and my Tevas cannot outperform the shoes worn by my two guides. They were wearing all black el-cheapos and they are ugly but they really grip. Off course, if you have the moolah then you can action a bit and also perform. I think most important is we need to break in the shoes and not buy now for tomorrow's trek. No matter how expensive the shoes are, new shoes will bite you hard when you are in the middle of nowhere. laugh.gif

Adidas kampung is not for everyone.
If you think you need a good padding insole then adidas kampung wouldn't give you that.
However we used to wear soccer socks coupled with Adidas kampung. But again, it's not for everyone.

check out amazon.com

hiking boots from TIMBERLAND, COLUMBIA, NORTH FACE and ect. starts from $40 US. If u have any relatives there who are coming back it's definitely a great bargain as they offer free shipping within US. Shippings back to Malaysia might cost a little more, but sum it all up it is still cheaper than the stores in Malaysia

Hi Leong!
I agree with you completely. Can be really cheaper to shop online.

But I was told by a friend that we also have to be careful coz some models of the shoes are actually made to suit the weather there. Meaning they use different kind of glue for the (cold and dry) temperature there. So, those shoes may not last that long here.

Am not sure how true this is.

Anyone?

Just my opinion, Hi-tec are heavy and bulky. Saloman is fit. Columbia is in-between both this brand.

But personally, in terms of quality, I reckon Saloman stands out between the three.

Do you really need a good hiking shoes, do you go very frequently? Think about it first. Durability comes with a price. Paying RM600 for a shoes that I will use maybe 3 times a year doesn't really make it worthwhile. Columbia makes comfortable shoes within an affordable price range. Jayajusco have their offers very often (making it almost like everyday offers, sometimes this branch, sometimes that branch) and they have a small selection of Columbias. They also have Hitec but I tend to agree that they are heavy.

MORE IMPORTANT THAN BRAND, I think buying them earlier and wear it often to break-in the shoes is a good step. You can buy a Merell or a Timberland but if you don't break in, they are going to sting your feet big time when you hike.

I got myself a Teva and it is lying on the rack on most the time. Too bulky for walks or jogging. laugh.gif I only wears it on rainy days as the grip is good even on slippery tiles. Consider carefully before buying. Buy for functionality rather than to show off.

Want waterproof, get a plastic bag and stuff your leg inside before wearing then wrap along your leg... seriously.

A very good leech proof socks, I learned from kampong folks when I went mountain biking with them. Buy a pack of those cheap tabacco, the ones our aunties used to roll and smoke (hung yin, can get from chinese prayer shops). Soaked your socks and also the tabacco in water for a few hours, then hang up and dry. Wear them just like that. Guaranteed no leeches will approach your shoes, unless you are hiking in the area which have those striped leeches. These perch on leaves and jumps onto you. laugh.gif

You won't be able to smell it after drying. Aiyah! don't la take the socks and put it under your nostril and inhale. rclxub.gif These creatures have better sensing than us, we humans already forgot how to maximise our senses liao. What we can't see, they can (I mean animals not leeches), what we can't smell, they can and what we can't feel, they also can.

@happy, that is expensive ler...
There's one shop in Midah I came across that sells Kampung Adidas. Same row as those food stalls at the roadside, opposite Public Bank.

@etigge,
Actually no need that troublesome. Unless one wants to wear short pants. With trousers like I mentioned, pair it with a soccer jersey socks. Stuff the end of the trousers into the socks and voila....

You know my Teva watershoe also have those mesh almost at the base of the shoe to allow water to flow out if you have to walk in streams or or wade across rivers. Nice feature but it also allow mud to flow in if you are thrashing through muddy terrain. Problem here was, when mud comes in, only water flow out leaving the sandy particles of the mud inside and whenyou walk they start grinding. rclxub.gif I made a mistake of taking off my socks too as I felt uncomfortable in wet socks. The bare skin start grinding like sandpaper againts the sole. During the hike up and down you don't really feel it but after taking off your shoes cry.gif blisters and wound starts to appear. I will never take off my socks again even if I stepped into sh*t. icon_rolleyes.gif

If it's rocky terrain, it's not advisable to use Kampung Adidas. Because there's not much support especially on the ankle as well as not much padding.

However, that being said; it all depends on individuals.

With all the boots around, I would still say I prefer our local good ol army boots. Just don't know how to get a hand on it nowadays. I have one during my teens. The only discomfort I have with army boots is the lesser padding, as well as the tight support around the ankle (would "bite" you if you do not break the boot it to the max before the first hike).

Huh? Do you mean that a normal bata hiking shoes will do? I thought I will most likely need a pair of shoes which is insulated and not to mention waterproof.

Never tried winter trekking.
But IMO, you might want to get high cut boot for it and either buy crampon or spikes to be ready just in case needed.

Personal opinion - Not necessary need to get insulated. But waterproof is definitely needed. For insulation, you can wear winter socks. Wear 2 if not enough warm wink.gif

My experience in winter, I wore my timberland mid cut boot with wool socks. Personally I think it's bearable with -ve temperature.

I rather pay a little bit more and get a NEW Columbia. Good as it may be, second hand shoes already have a distinct abnormalities on the sole and also the upper parts when the previous owner wears it.

Some drag thier feet when walking and some tip toe. laugh.gif Some walk without even the heel touching the ground. All patterns of walking have different wear.

Where is that?.... My feet quite small; so maybe can fit. I'm only a size 6 or 39... sweat.gif

And I do agree with etigge's comment.
I can never understand people buying clothing attire through the net. One reason being cannot try the comfort and fit. Unless of course one tried the actual items in some shops before purchasing through internet.

Hmmm... you got your point there. Not to mention that the thought of wearing a pair of possessed boots really send chills up my spine. shocking.gif

So the best place to hunt for a pair of hiking shoes are Royal Sport House and World of Sports right?

Hey! I was browsing around Mid Valley today and guess what, I found a few Merrel new models selling for RM269.00, check it and the tag says Made In Vietnam but it's quite good with Vibram soles. A few older models (MAde In China) was selling for RM489 but with 50 percent discount. Very much cheaper than Columbia's. I saw them at Royal Sporting House and the other shop with lots of sports shoes near the cineplex. icon_rolleyes.gif

World Of Sports is having a sale. I just got my Salomon Xa pro GTX for Rm350. Much cheaper than most online sites in US even amazon. I uselly refrain myself from buying hiking shoes since they are so heavy and very hard to backpack with. So I usually buy offroad running shoes, much lighter and comfortable.


Anyway I find it hard to find good places to shop outdoor gear since most of the seller here hideously overpriced their products. Usually I shop fro my gears in China when my company sent me there for work.

Vibram Five Fingers are a viable choice of shoes for trekking. They give your soles a good feel of the terrain underneath, allowing you to adjust your posture, position of your feet, toes etc etc. You're less likely to lose your balance, slip and fall, twist an ankle etc etc. Not exactly cheap though.

I wished I was as enterprising as that. I asked at some shop in Bangsar a few months ago, and they wanted RM476 for one model. In the end, I got a friend to get it for me from San Francisco and I paid her back about RM380, inclusive of the 8.5% sales tax. These things are much cheaper in the US and Canada.

Anyway, there's pros and cons for wearing such shoes. Same like adidas kampung, or the adidas outdoor posted above this types of shoes got less padding as well as less ankle support. Thus if one doesn't watch where they are stepping, one would be more prone to ankle sprain.

You just missed the warehouse sale by Royal Sporting House for the Merrells which was on a 50% discount. I think the mid valley branch still has some stocks for one or two models which is selling for around RM150. You should also browse the outdoor section of Direct Sports in Subang which carries Karrimors, Hitecs, Campris and many others. It is also on discount. No need to mail order. icon_rolleyes.gif

I bought a pair of Columbia in Nov 2010 for RM300+ after 30% discount.
I have been using them regularly 2X a week at Saga, Cuepacs and Bt Indah trails. I have used them at G Nuang up to Pacat only, once This shoe is quite hardy and durable. The only down sides are the sole wears out pretty fast within a year and the grip is not that good when descending down wet slopes.

I have a pair of Jeep hiking shoes which I bought at J Jusco for RM150 after 50% discount. I use this 2-3X a week (I hike 5 times a week). I have been using this pair for almost 9 months. The grip is better than Columbia. I have never slipped and fell while in this shoes. But they are not as durable as Columbia. They look pretty worn out now.

I am looking for another pair now. I want a sole that can last but not so expensive. Any recommendation?

I have bought a Merrell but sold it out through Mudah after 2 hikes. Doesn't grip. Then I shifted to Hitec mid cut. The grip was better but soles are too soft for my weight and it flexes too much making the part below the toes painful because of stones nudging the soles. Although there were many complaints of Hitec soles separating from the shoes, World of Outdoor is willing to guarantee me for a year and replace it if it does. The shoes are good and comfy except for the soles. I saw a newer range of Hitecs with stiffer and harder soles and I bought a pair and tried it out. They are better and I have found a pair suitable for my use. I practically don't think of my feet now when I hike like I did last time because of the pain.

I think everyones' need is different but the sad thing is, we have to try to know what the needs are. Sports Direct stocks them too and they also sells Karrimors and Campris. The higher ends are really nice!

PS/ My wife wears Columbia lites and she has no complains till now.

I have bought a Merrell but sold it out through Mudah after 2 hikes. Doesn't grip. Then I shifted to Hitec mid cut. The grip was better but soles are too soft for my weight and it flexes too much making the part below the toes painful because of stones nudging the soles. Although there were many complaints of Hitec soles separating from the shoes,  World of Outdoor is willing to guarantee me for a year and replace it if it does. The shoes are good and comfy except for the soles. I saw a newer range of Hitecs with stiffer and harder soles and I bought a pair and tried it out. They are better and I have found a pair suitable for my use. I practically don't think of my feet now when I hike like I did last time because of the pain.

I think everyones' need is different but the sad thing is, we have to try to know what the needs are. Sports Direct  stocks them too and they also sells Karrimors and Campris. The higher ends are really nice!

PS/ My wife wears Columbia lites and she has no complains till now.

I have friends complained about Hitecs too. I would probably try out Brooks. Jusco used to give 50% for trail shoes but now at only 30% during their sales.

Anyway I will never advocate buying clothing apparels including shoes via internet because we don't really know the actual fit.

Unless it's the same brand and model that one use to wear. Else sometimes even the same brand but different model, also the fitting might be off.

Hitec, Keen, Asolo, New Balance, Campri, Karrimor, Lafuma and many more unheard of here in Malaysia. The biggest farce is Timberland which does not really justify the price they cost.

i guess Merrell shoes is good ,preferably get 2 pair. anything Bear Grylls wear might be the best for now. boots a bit heavy and also could injure the ankle due to limited movement.

Mount Kinabalu trails can be done with normal track shoes. It is so well laid out, no worries! But if you really want to buy something maybe for other hikes, then you should shop around. Everyone has different needs and different sizes and shapes. You have to really put your feet in to feel if it is comfy or not. Stick with known brands like Columbia, Hitec, Merrel and off course Salomon although Salomon specializes more on trail running.

If you are looking for shoes, you better get on it fast as shoes needs breaking in to really get comfortable. Buy a pair now and wear it as often as possible and also wet it and dry it for a few times. It really sucks if youa re going on a trip and the shoes are biting you.

On the contrary, boots actually protects the ankle better from twisting. Just like ankle height shoes.

Is it comfortable to hike with high ankle shoes? I wore kampung adidas when I climbed Mt. K but I realised that I tend to roll my ankles a lot. I now know that I have quite weak ankles.

I am planning to go G. Nuang, Bukit Tabur soon and I don't think I should wear my kampung adidas. Besides, I also just recovered from ankle injury. I have a bit of fear for heights especially when descending so I really need good grip shoes. Should I go for high ankles shoes as well?

I was leaning towards Columbia but someone here commented that it doesn't grip well. Any recommendation?

There are many brands and sometimes a particular brand has some good and some bad. Don't give up on Columbia just because your friend says so. There are some good models and the models change frequently. Just like myself, everybody says Merrell and I got myself a pair. Then I found out that the grip was poor and reputation for Hitecs was also not very favourable. But because there was a 50% discount I went ahead anyway. Find that they are good but tracks are too soft but the newer models came out with harder tracks and I am still wearing for my hikes. Last word is, it's a personal choice and also whether the cuttings are suitable for your legs. Go with reputable brands like Columbia, Hitec, Salomon, Keen, Merrell, Teva and you won't go wrong.

Easier still, give Sports Direct a visit. There are many choices there. icon_rolleyes.gif

I bought my shoes on-line and I must admit that I'm more than satisfied:-)
http://www.achat-rando.com/index.php?p=527&c=31
I do realise that it's hard sometimes to get a good size and feel good inside without trying but it happens :-)

Web site is in french- it doesn't make life easier wink.gif but they answer all questions by mail in english

PS high ancke shoes are confortable but at the beginning it's abit strange - after few hours you get use to it and it's ok :-)

If you want tom compete then get those trail running shoes which are light but with grip. Personal opinion, I think everyone got their own choices. I got friends whom are comfortable enough to wear kampung adidas in the deepest of jungle and long hike.

beefree-> yeah, it is difficult to get the proper size. I just ordered my salomon guidance online. hopefully everything is correct.took me few days to do research about the shoes and my type of foot. (although a bit expensive for me, but i think it may worth the price, hopefully)



b00n-> yeah, actually I always uses kampung addidas when go hiking. But some uncle condemn me la... and also my friends advice. But it still true that Kampung addidas are soft and I could feel the rocks on my foot. No problems with deep jungle as the trail tend to me muddy and soft and small.
Anyway, I think I just worried about descending down the mountain, afraid of knee injuries due to improper shoes.

Thanks for the opinions and advices. Appreciate it.

I have just went for world of sport warehouse sale in Pearl point and I tried the Salomon, is very comfortable... I did try Hi-tec also but the feel is different, the Hi-tec feel too hard inside.

I going to M.KK next year too.. still wondering which shoe I should buy... I do have a kampung adidas but i only use it for hiking while after raining or when i know the road make my shoe wet..

I need another hiking shoe for backpacking & hiking to someplace like tabur...

Hi guys and sifus,

I'll be going to Royal Belum for fishing expedition dis CNY rclxm9.gif .. 4D3N.. Actually this is my 2nd time here.. I just want to ask what is the suitable/recommended trekking shoes.. Our destination is about 5-7 hours trekking.. I oledi bought the green canvas/cloth jungle boot but somehow i'm not really confident to wear those boot due to it lacks of cushioning.

Previously i wore just a puma futsal shoes where i always slipped and almost injured myself. I've gone and checked on several shoes such Camel active and Adidas which range around RM250.. But is it durable enough since Royal Belum forest is very thick??

Need advise from u guys.. Thanks in advance!!

Guys, any recommendation for alpine light hiking? Going to try out Aiguille du Midi at Chamonix around September (which should still be around end of summer). I hope I don't need crampons for it. Should I get it in Malaysia or France? Will France be cheaper?

Hi people, just visited Direct Sports at Subang yesterday and there's a pair of Hitec mid-ankle hiking boots for sale, last pair, size 8 male, at bin sale section.

Not promoting the brand. Just sharing that if you have bought already any shoes used for a year more and going for more hikes, do remember to stitch it up so that it could last a bit more...

My first hiking boots (ex-now coz just died) was Hitec bought at MV World of Sports @50%, 3 years ago served me well at Rinjani but started to come apart on me at Fansipan. Most prolly due to wet conditions. The rubber soles gave way. Loved the mid-ankle support though. Cheers

I have stopped buying expensive shoes for hiking. I would now go for those that cost RM100+ after 30-50% discount. Both the expensive and cheaper shoes lasted approx 1 year as I trek 3-4 times a week. I personally prefer Asics trail shoes for its comfort.
