My shoes are Timberland, I was hoping to be sure the carried the laces I needed before I made a special trip. I would call but most of the time phone conversations tend to be difficult for either party to comprehend. I find it easier for a direct face to face session.

You are the second person, though, who recommended Timberland so I will definatly check them out next time I'm in the vicinity.

If your shoes are Timberland, then maybe you have some hope of finding laces... but even the Timberland stores... only Timberland... are poorly stock for laces for their own boots.

Otherwise, you can about forget anywhere else... I've looked many places for boot laces. Your best bet is online. I bought some great Kevlar laces.

That's what I'm coming to expect. I just called the stores and it didn't look good.

This 2 sites are where I shop most frequently! Almost every other month they have new stocks coming in and some of them are even hand crafted shoes. :???:

Need to keep my expenditure in check though..... :P


I hope these sites are useful for you!

I need some sandals, but I have size 45-46 (I think this is about 11-12). I was in "Giant" yesterday and it was really hard to find some fitting slippers. Where can I buy sandals in my size (I live near Kent Ridge MRT Station).

Any tips? :) Asians seem to have smaller feet :D


Hi take the train to City Hall.
There you find EXCELSIOR SHOPPING CENTRE
Add: 5 Coleman Street Singapore 179805
Go to Basement 1.
Tones of shoe shops.
and Plus Size Men clothes.

Hope this Helps.
Best Regards

As recommended by my podiatrist, there are two shops in Singapore for good quality footwear in big sizes. - Neither are cheap, but good footwear isn't!

Feder Sports in Peninsula Plaza - #02-53 - Ask for Jeffrey Chong he certainly does GOOD QUALITY footwear in sizes big enough for me (13-F-UK)

Arch Angel - http://www.archangel-shoes.com/ we get all our kids shoes there, they are again GOOD QUALITY footwear, I recommend the Finn Comfort shoes, they are excellent.

As I said, both recommended by a podiatrist, the latter I think is owned by a pod.
