Health and Travel Tied to Shoes

Health and Travel Tied to Shoes
I use my Thailand cheap flip-flop sandals to save on wear and tear of my good Reeboks. I now am realizing this is fighting against good health, diet and exercise.

The bottom line is this, because I use sandal, I walk less because they are not as comfortable.
Sandals versus Shoes for Travel

Asia almost demand sandals in a way, you need to enter shops, houses, rooms where they want you to remove your shoes for respect to the local customs, maybe religion. Therefore, in Asia it has always been annoying to wear my Reeboks and take them on and off all the time.

I have been in this battle for a healthy body, this one is wearing out, and I need to renovate, fix, repair and recreate this one to a better status. I am planning a trip down towards Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Brunei, Australia and other Walkabout places. I therefore need to Walkabout well.

The problem is this, it is close to impossible to buy these shoes anywhere but in the USA, I am not sure what to do, I think I am going to ask my parents to snail mail a few extra pairs to Thailand for storage. There are no limits to the lack of comfort involved in having a crummy pair of shoes, I just want my shoes, not any other pair, and I want my brand, my type, my look, and the shoes I want to wear.

I am still going to try to wear sandals to converse the shoe wear and tear for short walks to the 7-11 or Grocery Store.
