On the second floor of Sovannah mall there are a couple of little shoe stores that have plus 10 sizes, also there is a target like store that never has any customers but does have some larger sizes.

Pretty ordinary knock off chuck taylors are the only thing I've found there above 44, but never a 47.

Is the target like store City Mart? I thought they went bust? They often had a good range of large sizes for clothes and shoes.

Ya, City Mart, forgot the name of it. Still open but I have no idea how, I have never seen a customer in there. Looks like quite a bit of stock too.

And a pair of these

In the past I've bought numerous pairs of Sketchers, Clark's, Asics, Saloman shoes, as well as Keen and Reef sandals.
All size 46 (some 45.5) All $30 or $35 a pair. All made in Cambodia.

I find it interesting that we have 2 systems: metric and Imperial, which cover the entire world, and include such weird things as relative humidity, which relatively few people access,

but try buying a pair of shoes,

and all of a sudden no genius ever considered a standard sizing.

There is some ancient evil afoot...

Some genius called ''GOD '' forgot to give everyone a standed size foot.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Living in phnom phen im American from Miami, hello all and thank you in advance for any help.
I need size 13 sneakers/trainer's, size XL OR XXL shirts, size 38 pants. I can't find anything my size expecially the trainers.
Please help, if i need to buy online to ship what would you suggest.

Thanks again
I'm pretty thin, maybe 34 waist and I have to buy XXXL underwear here. I needed a pair of dress-style shoes in a hurry last week and found it really tricky. I'm about 9.5 in US sizes but had to go to about six shops before I could find anything that would fit, and ended up buying a style I'd never usually go for just because they fit. Fuck it though, I'll probably only wear them once or twice a year.

City Mart was ok, but it closed down and the shop that replaced it ( Can't remember the name) is crap.

The City Mart in Lucky Soriya has closed.

I think the one at Sovanna is still open
