Where can I buy big size shoes in Busan?
Printer-friendly version

Where can I find big size shoes in Busan?  Every place I go only has up to Korean size 280, but I need size 300.  And I don't like the idea of buying shoes online.  I really need to try them on before I buy.  Thanks in advance.

It's located in Jeonpo-daero, Soemyeon.

Thats a pain in the neck. I know you said you would like to try them on first, but online is the best option to buy some reasonably priced big size shoes.

For offline stores your best best is visiting local ABC mart, Les More, etc. and check the labels. Labels say until what size the shoes are. But 300 shoes are usually popular models of known brands and cost around and above 100.000 won. I need to add that choices are usually limited and not to my taste.

In ABC Mart many of labels say the shoe comes in size up to 300, but when you ask to see it they always say they only carry up to 280 in the store, so you'd have to order online to get size 300, even from ABC mart.  At least thats been the case of every ABC mart I've ever been in(which is at least 10) except for the one in Itaewon, which did carry a few big sizes, though not many.(and that was like 4 years ago, so not even sure that store still exists)

Sorry to hear. There is a Korean brand called paperplanes. They usually carry 300 for most of the models. I guess they have one offline store in Seoul. If it is close to you, you can check that out.

I have bought 300 shoes  in Shinsaegae  ,  abc shoes in Lottee Dept Store in Nampo , and  Megamart near Kwangali ,     I think  more Westerners go there better chance to have big sizes , Nowadays    Korean younger people are much taller but I am not sure if their feet are bigger , I always had a harder time to buy shirts in Busan since the arms are too short and shoulders too tight , These days Koreans are taller and taller ,  Bigger feet will follow ,

I wear a 300/12 and I have ran across two size 12s in shoes I want in the past three years in Korea. It's difficult to find anything over a 10 and a half or 11 here. I always buy shoes when I go to Japan.

I went to Megamart in Gwangali last weekend, looked on every floor,  and couldn't find any shoes or sneakers larger than 280.   I also couldn't find any shoes in shinsagae/Centum larger than 280, but I didn't ask EVERY shoe store, just the ones I've heard of like ABC Mart, Rockport, hushpuppies, skechers etc...

I have worn a variety of athletic shoes over my life.
Some of my past jobs required me to wear particular footwear. For example, when I was a Smoke jumper in California, I wore jump boots After a particularly long and exhausting fire, I decided that I was going to find the single most comfortable pair of sneakers for men. I found it and after that my foot were at peace.
