We love Queensway Shopping Centre (1 Queensway) for its cheap, cheap sneakers, racquets and sporting apparel. You can get a pair of Nikes go for less than $100 depending on the shoes you have set your eyes on.
It’s not for fashion-forward types as the shops sell last season’s leftovers. But at least it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. As the prices vary between shops, we’d recommend that you browse for a bit before buying. And if that fails, bargain like you’re in Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market.
