Most shoes sold by big brands in South East Asia are not designed for local climes. They feel too hot. And if you get stuck in a flood, they take days to dry out. Today I found this pair in Saigon made by a local company called Một (one in Vietnamese). I like such simple design. I bought them for 30 USD. It is nice to see more and more locally designed and manufactured stuff. Let us see if this pair can stand up to my daily 8 kilometers walk routine.
