Shoes in Cambodia

Most people go around Cambodia wearing flip flops, or plastic sandals. I don't play that way. I wear socks, you see; this I wear flats. When packing for Cambodia I wasn't really sure what I was going to do about the rainy season. I debated bringing my rain boots. Haha, I'm so glad that I didn't. It's so stinking hot that I don't think I would have ever worn them.

I brought three pairs of shoes to Cambodia. My tennis shoes, my traveling shoes, and a cheap pair of shoes from Payless that I didn't care if they got ruined. I have a lot of shoes, so only bringing 3 pairs was tough.

Cambodia is hard on shoes. The roads are dusty and during the rainy season your feet get soaked every day. These are what my cheap payless shoes look like after the rainy season.
This is what my traveling shoes look like after living here 6 months. I love these shoes, I've taken them with me on every trip I've gone on for years. They've held up amazingly well.
and finally here are my sweet mustard yellow flats I had made here back in October. They took a while to stretch out, so I didn't wear them a lot until rather recently, but they've still taken a beating.

I'm thinking about getting another pair of leather flats made for the rainy season, so send me links, or tag me in pictures on pinterest for really cute flats.
