The Bangkok was a beefier version of the Tiger Marathon, as a training shoe or long racer. Similar geometry to the nylon racing flat, but more. For starters, the upper was sueded leather, also blue with white form stripes maintaining the aesthetic of the line. The midsole featured forefoot and heel cushioning, though not full length, keeping the weight trimmed down. The insole was foamed rubber, ventilated to facilitate evaporation of perspiration between runs. The outersole tooling was a bit sturdier than in the Cub or the Marathon, but with a similar appearance, though toothier. The performance was fine, and the versatility made it a good choice as it handled double duty for a variety of running scenarios.
