where can i find shoes and bags ar?bags especially, din see many shops on my previous trips. shopping wise, for male clothes, othere den xmd n shilin, where else can i go? wu fen pu seems out, alot of female stuff on my last visit. xmd izzt got 1 wan yan da sha? any1 knows what it sells?

Male bags not much range even if have also not very nice. They have some authentic porter japan bags and replica ones though. Bag shops XMT got a few or you can check out some of those clothing shops they sell bags as well. I saw one brand called 'Playboy' , some of the designs not bad, also in the area near XMT/Shilin.

Shoes wise, if you are looking for shoes like Nike/Adidas/Asics etc. XMT and Shilin got mah, there are quite a few, I remember right to the end of Shilin got a pretty big shoe shop. Rao He Night market some of the shop houses sells shoes as well. Taichung at a whole stretch of shop houses near Yi Zhong Jie have a lot of shoes shop. I remember got one of the them sells very nice limited edition shoes not found in other shops. XMT also have a very small shop that sells limited edition shoes.

Many shops selling Nike. Wanted to buy Asics sports shoes but really so few and mostly casual model.
