Road Side Shoes
A vendor selling shoes on the road side of Jalan Gunung Batu in the western part of the city. Different models of shoes are offered here. According to the seller, he and his friends came all the way from Sidoardjo, an industrial city near Surabaya in East Java. They claimed they had brought the shoes directly from the factory and therefore they could sell them for a lot less than any shops or supermarkets.
I once bought a pair of walking shoes for a little more than six US dollars. They looked good, but did not feel as comfortable as those that are more expensive. They did not last long either.
