“ Brand: Nike / Equipment Type: Bag „
I recently picked up a shoe bag for my golf shoes after a year or two of carrying my shoes round in a plastic bag. It is by no means an essential item for the budding golfer, but a nice to have so you don't look so scabby when turning up to play at your local club.
The shoe bag is mainly black in colour with a white zip, logo and design. The bag is made from a Nylon material which is both lightweight and durable. It is also very easy to wipe clean, getting rid of those muddy patches which often appear pulling your golf shoes in and out.
As you might expect from a Nike product the quality of the fabric feels good and the bag looks to have been made to a high standard. The stitching holding the Nylon panels together looks robust and I am confident that the bag will last me a number of years.
There are also ventilation panels in the shoe bag which helps both the shoe bag and the shoes themselves from getting too smelly. Keeping your shoes clean will of course help reduce an shoe odor, but the breathable mesh does help. This is especially the case in wet weather. The mesh allows the air at your shoes while you travel from the golf course back to your house. I have on occasion left them in the boot of the car to air out, but that has left me with an unhappy wife when I have ended up with grass and mud all over the boot as the shoes have moved about on the journey home. Having the shoe bag also means that my golf shoes now have a 'place' which my wife seems to like too!
There is a handle on the bag which make carrying the shoes to and from the car nice and easy too. Some of the bags I looked at didn't have a handle and you would have had to stick the bag under your arm which would have been a little awkward when carrying your clubs at the same time.
The bag is 14" W x 5" H x 9" D (all sizes in inches) and this is big enough to fit my size 11 shoes inside. However, I wouldn't want to try and get a larger shoe in the bag as it is a fairly snug fit. The one thing which could make this bag better and it is a feature on more expensive bags is a double zip. This could allow the bag to open wider with a zip at either side of the top of the bag instead of one down the middle which would make getting the shoes in and out of the bag a little easier. I am really nit picking here though!
The price of the product varies from somewhere around £10 - £15. I used e-bay to pick up my shoe bag as I found it to be the cheapest place to get the product. I think for the price you will struggle to find a bag which is of a better quality than this one.
It ticks all the boxes and I would certainly recommend this to any of my golfing friends or family. Despite the zip, I don't see any reason not to give this bag 5/5. It is a fantastic budget golf shoe bag.
