Wearing comfortable trekking shoes with good grip is very important. With bad shoes an easy trek really can become an ordeal. Your choice of shoes depend on quite a few factors:
– your personal hiking style
– the weather conditions
– the difficulty of the trails
– the amount of days you are trekking
– the amount of luggage you are carrying.
For short treks on trails that are not too difficult we recommend good walking shoes such as these:
If you go on more difficult and longer treks you might want to have a bit more ankle support and waterproof shoes such as these:
I have done most of the trekkings on running shoes such as these:
In dry conditions and on short treks they are fine.
They are not waterproof though and don’t give a lot of support. It also depends on your personal preference.

They are ideal for crossing rivers and streams.
Definitely bring flip flops for the evening in the village such as these:
They are for sale everywhere in Thailand.
Have a good trek!
