Our eldest plays a lot of tennis, and our local courts are outdoor ones. As a result, his shoes can get a bit muddy. Although he has a large tennis bag, we've needed to get an extra smaller bag just for his shoes for a couple of reasons. The first is that he likes to go off to play around the park with his friends after tennis, playing games such as manhunt, and this can often involve getting a bit dirty; so he takes a spare pair of shoes so as to not ruin his tennis shoes. The other is that he sometimes heads straight to tennis practice or matchplay after school, and needs to have his kit with him.
In each of these circumstances, we don't want muddy shoes dirtying the inside of a bag or its contents, and so we've got this extra shoe bag. I know it's intended for rugby or football boots with studs, and this is easy to see by the durability of the bag. It's made from what feels like a tough canvas type material, strong enough to withstand the occasional protruding component from its contents and indeed from the exterior. The bag has a dual zip on the front, which opens up a flap so you easily get your footwear in and out. There is plenty of room inside; our son is currently a size 4 and the shoes barely take up a chunk of space. We've tried putting my size 10 trainers in there and there's still plenty of room; the bag supposedly is big enough for size 14 shoes so this comes as no great surprise.
The bag is pretty easy to clean. To get inside and give it a quick clean isn't tricky, but the bag can get dirtier, which is quite often in wet weather when our son's tennis shoes are a bit grubbier, or if he's played around the park and then changed back into his tennis shoes, leaving his muddy shoes inside the bag. The handy thing is that this is easily machine washable. We find that a normal cycle is more than enough to wash this, and after a good number of washes of use it still looks relatively new.
There is some occasional fraying in the fabric, and this is where the outer layer of material has been pierced, however slightly. It happens more on the outside and along next to the zip and where the material joins another section. We don't have such concern about this as it still completely does its job, but I can imagine that if you have studs or spikes in this bag then this may become more of an issue somewhat quicker, so it's worth considering this when deciding if you want to buy it or not. The bag is likely to cost you around the £5 mark depending on where you get it from, so it's not an expensive thing to replace if needs be, and it certainly does the job we need it for.
No doubt fashion will have its day and our son will demand a more 'in' brand for his age group and he'll want whatever his friends are using. For now though, the bag he has fits wherever he needs it to, keeps the inside of his school bag clean for days when he's training after school, and allows him to play in and around the park without us getting annoyed at unnecessarily dirty tennis equipment and bag. Recommended, despite the potential material damage concerns.
This is an ideal bootbag for anyone who use specialised footwear to participate in a chosen sport. I actually use this bag for my boxing boots, not as you might think for football boots.
The idea of studs ripping or denting any other items in my bag is not really an issue as boxing boots are flat and have no studs. The issue remains of course, of dirt and other particles picked up from the boxing canvas and the dirty, sweaty floors of the boxing gym dirtying other items in the bag, so I use this shoe bag as protection for this.
As with all boot bags it is made from a robust canvas or a tough polyester if you will, material, with a strong zip that goes down the centre of the bag so that you can remove your clothes and your boots very easily.
The canvas on the bag is black and you will see the distinctive three stripe and adidas logo running around the bag in grey and white. There is also a handy wrist strap at the top of the bag, also made from tough material, which in the six months that I have had this bag, has not ripped or frayed. The size of the bag is perfect for any sport shoe regardless of whether they have studs or not, up to around a size 14 foot, which I am glad to say I do not have. My boxing boots are actually slightly longer than a normal shoe, and very narrow, so you might expect that they would stretch a typical football boot bag, but this is not the case with this particular bag, for my size 10.5s. Also, my boxing boots have a lot of material above the ankle as they have to lace half way up my shin for heel and ankle support. Again, I have found that this bag has ample room for all this extra material and the zip does not seem to be under any extra pressure or look like its going to burst through. The dimensions are 36 cm x 18 cm x 12 cm.
This bag is very easy to wash, as it is machine-washable. This is a handy feature as my boxing boots can get quite sweaty and also get a lot of other people's sweat (and in some cases blood) on the sole, and this would stink out other clothes and items in my rucksack.
The bag can be purchased from most sports retailers, online or at the highstreet. I got mine as a faithful customer of Amazon, for a mere £5.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this very robust and well manufactured boot-bag. I am surprised that as it is made by Adidas it is not more expensive, but I am not surprised by the fantastic level of quality that you can expect from a brand like Adidas.
**What is it?**
The Adidas Essential Shoe Bag is a simple bag for carrying sports shoes / trainers. It's suitable for a number of different sports shoes and for most adult sizes male / female.
**Price and Availability**
The Adidas Essential Shoe Bag is available on the high street most notably where I purchased it, Sports Direct. It can cost anything from £5 to £10 depending on sales and promotions, I paid £7.99 which I think is very fair for a branded item.
It's pretty simple looking in a black polyester finish with a black three quarter zip and a grey modern Adidas logo to the front. It has a small carrying strap woven in black nylon. It's not too fancy but the colour means it will wear well, with sports which are a bit muddier.
The Adidas Essential Shoe Bag is very easy to use and fits most shoes well - I've used it with women's running shoes in a size 7 and my husband has used the same bag for football boots in size 11 so it certainly is versatile. I'd say it was durable too because in the 18 months we've had the bag it's as good as new and has been through the washing machine twice, too, it washes and dries well at 30 degrees and a radiator dry (I wouldn't recommend putting it in the tumble dryer).
Yes, I highly recommend the Adidas Essential Shoe Bag. For the money you won't get a better, more durable sports brand named shoe bag, and it's suitable for absolutely everyone.
Five stars out of five from me, the Adidas Essential Shoe Bag certainly lives up to it's name - it's an essential shoe bag, from Adidas!
I have a pair of trainers that are basically just my trainers for doing sport and for no other reason than that. They are nice looking trainers for sports but I look a bit mumsy if I wear them with jeans for everyday ware. I tend to stick to Converse or classic Adidas trainers to wear with jeans. As such then I tend to keep these trainers in the car and only get them out when I need to wear them for sport. I usually go straight to netball from when I have been out during the day and so change when I get there as there are facilities to change which is nice. That being the case I needed a bag to store my trainers in so I could always be sure that the trainers were in my car and with me when I needed them and also to keep them together.Also, although we play netball on a concrete court outside we have to walk over a muddy field to get to the court so usually my trainers are quite muddy when I put them away so its nice to have a dedicated bag to put them in so they won't get the car dirty or they won't get the rest of my clothes dirty too.
This bag is perfect for putting my trainers in. Its quite simple and is long and rectangular so all it really fits in is a pair of trainers. The bag is black and it has the Adidas logo on one side of it so it is quite simple looking but that is all you really want from a bag that you just put your trainers in. The back has a zip around half of it so you can unzip it and easily slot your trainers in and then zip it back up again.
The back is made of 100% polyester so its quite easy to clean. The outside of it has that wipe clean material so if it does get any mud on it I just wipe it with a baby wipe and the dirt comes off. Inside gets quite mucky with all the mud that will fall off my trainers and so I usually always need to shake the bag out once i take my trainers out. The nice thing I like about this bag is that it has a mesh section at the top of the bag so when you have your smelly trainers in there the mesh will allow some air into the bag when it is closed and so the bag never ends up smelling like feet!!
The bag has a small carry handle at the top which makes the bag easy to tote around. I think this bag cost me in the £10 region and I definitely recommend it for a good shoe carrying bag.
Through my love of football I have purchased numerous items and equipment. An essential item for me is a boot bag to keep my boots and shin pads inside keeping my other things in my footy bag clean.
After recently buying some new Adidas Copa Mundial football boots I decided that I wanted a new boot bag to keep them in. As the boots were Adidas I wanted to have a matching bag. I came across a few brightly coloured ghastly bags before finally coming across the Adidas essential shoe bag in Sportsdirect. For a bargain price of only £5 I picked myself up a simple black and grey bag perfect for my boots. The main colour is plain black with a little grey trim and "Adidas" written across the front in big letters. For me the bag looks good and doesn't stand out and make me look like a prima donna. It is fastened across the top of the bag with a zip. The zip is actually quite annoying as it is always catching on the material inside the bag. When it catches the material the zip becomes stuck and take reasonable force to release.
The material used for the bag is 100% polyester. This fabric is tough and strong providing great protecting and withstands the rough use I get out of it. The polyester is easy to keep clean I tend to just wipe down with a baby wipe. There is a little black handle which makes it easy to carry. The dimensions of the bag are 36cm x 18cm x12 cm which is enough size for two boots and a pair of slip in pads. It might be a bit of a squeeze to get much more in but I easily manage to fit tape and a stud screw. I have actually used it as a travel bag for my toiletries and it worked a treat.
For 5 pounds this is a good little bag although the zip is rubbish. It acts as good protection for your boots keeping it separate from you other gear.
This great Adidas shoe back was a gift from my dear other half to me about a year ago and it's well loved and well used. Since Christmas last I have been trying to lose weight on the advice of my GP. I lost a lot through weekly skipping classes and I also try to cycle to work most days. I tried to take up running but it made my knees ache due to my bulk, but I have been playing badminton at my local gym.
I keep my trainers in this great shoe bag which my dear other half managed to get at a snip of only £1.99 from our local sports shop at the retail park. It does retail for slightly more but I got this reduced - great stuff.
There's nothing incredibly special about it. It is purely and simply a black nylon shoe bag but it's come in very handy for when I go straight to the badminton court after work. I have large size 12 feet and this bag accommodates my large feet perfectly. I don't think it would manage to stretch to a larger size though as my size 12 trainers are just about the limit this bag will take and there is room for nothing else in there.
It has a great little handy handle for either carrying it with me or hanging up under the kitchen stairs when I have finished with it and it has a mesh section on the base where I can put other stuff like locker keys, etc., if needs be. Obviously it has the Adidas logo emblazoned across the side but it is discreet.
It's well made, the zips are secure and sturdy and the stitching is tight to the point that I can see it is not going to pull apart even if it is slightly stretched with my large trainers inside it.
It's a great little bag, handy and very durable and I'm over the moon with it.
I play five a side a couple of times a week and due to the fact that I walk over quite dirty paths and through a Dene to get to the local leisure centre I wear different trainers playing than I do when Im walking into the venue. I was just carrying them by hand which was very uncomfortable and impractical. So when I saw this Adidas boot bag advertised as being on sale at an online sports store for only £3 it seemed to suit my needs. In fact as a youngster I used these all the time for not only football boots but also school related things as well.
The item comes in a range of colours from blue with a grey trim to the one pictured above, and the one I have, black with a stylish grey logo. Indeed Adidas have undergone something of a shift in recent years as they move away from the 3 stripe dominated image of them and towards more classier designs. This bag clearly shows that off.
As with all goods from Adidas you get what you pay for and indeed what you pay for is well made, durable and tough material with a solid hard wearing construction. These bags will stand the test of time so you know if your child (or big child) is swinging it around as they tend to do as the bag as a top gripping handle, then it will survive.
Indeed this bag has been kicked, thrown, whacked with five a side balls, dropped and crammed full and it is still in prime condition.
It is machine washable which is handy if you are using for outdoor football boots too!
Also the space inside is deceiving. I can easily fit in a size 8 pair of trainers, a 500ml water bottle and a jumper. This works a treat.
All in all this is a good solid and dependable bag that will last a lifetime.
The Adidas essentials shoe bag is a cheap and cheerful storage solution for storing your gym or running shoes in a convenient and easy to access place.
I bought one of these in the January sales for only £2.99 in jjb sports a couple of years ago and they can still be bought for only a few pounds.
The shoe bag is a nylon zip bag which is just the right size for storing gym shoes in. I am a UK size 10 and my shoes fit in and there is still some room so I would reckon they would comfortably fit shoes right up to a size 12. There is also room for me to be able to put my keys in etc. when the bag is in my gym locker.
The bag has little mesh parts at the bottom which is to allow the air to circulate through the bag to stop sweaty gym shoes from smelling too badly the next time you go to get them out again.
There is also a little carry handle on top which also doubles up as a hanging hook and does make the bag easy to store and I have mine hanging from a hook in my garage ready to grab whenever the urge to go to the gym hits me.
The bag has the Adidas three strip branding but it isn't too big and in your face. Being made from Adidas the bag is good quality and all the stitching is tightly done and it hasn't become loose and ragged.
This is a pretty simple little shoe bag and there isn't an awful lot more to write about it. The bag is great quality and it is a good price. Lots of people at my gym have an Adidas shoe bag although there are some variations when it comes to the design but no matter which one you choose it should last you a long time.
I play football for a local village, meaning I'm always having to drive to and from my matches! I got fed up of having a muddy boot in my car after a match, football boots create all kinds of mess and cleaning out my boot after every match got boring! So I decided I needed a bag of somekimd to carry my trainers around In.
I bought this from JJB for £6.99 and though that was a good price, a quick look online shows you can be them for under a fiver, so there good value. They are simple bags with a zip on the outside, they open up enuogh for you to put your boots in, I also keep my shin pads in them too. They are handy and easy to carry with a small handle on the top. They are secure and the zip stays shut, they are also made out of a tough material that doesnt seem to wear out too much. My Adidas bag is black with Adidas written along the side, you can buy bigger boot bags with silly compartments, this one is a simple bag (which I prefer).
You could also buy one and use it for your trainers or other footware, they are quite good to just have in the car just in case you go somewhere muddy and don't want a horrible and messy car. They also look fashionable. Most of my mates on the team have this bag due to its cheap price. I think you shoudld shop around for the cheapest price, I'm sure you will get a better price than I did!
Overall I would recommend these to anyone who is into football and needs something to carry there boots around with them! It's great value, looks nice and does the job. Also perfect for any age or gender, it's just a good bag! Go and get yourself one :) they are also lightweight, so very comfy to hold.
Thanks for reading my review! Hope it helped a bit :)
I bought this to keep my muddy mountain bike shoes or soggy trainers clear of the rest of my gear
and stop them depositing mud over the interior of my car or the other contents of my sports bag on
the way home. The bag is a basic rectangular bag around 45cm long with a zip which is big enough
to carry one pair of shoes,trainers or football boots. The bag is quite understated in design with plain black material and the Adidas logo across it in silver writing.
The bag easily fits inside my usual gear bag and keeps my muddy shoes away from the rest of my
gear. There is a small loop handle if you want to carry the bag separately from the rest of your gear
it's not very big but it is comfortable to hold and seems to be quite securely stitched. The material on
the bag is quite thin but it does seem quite sturdy and is easy to wipe clean after use so you don't
end up putting your newly cleaned shoes into a bag full of mud the next time you use it. The zip
opens the entire length of the bag so it's easy to get your shoes in and out.
I've been using this for around a year and the bag still looks like new (after I clean it) and the
zip still works perfectly without sticking or snagging. The bag is reasonably waterproof so there's
little chance of your soaking wet trainers or muddy football boots soaking the rest of the contents of
These bags are perfect for anyone who carries their sports gear along with work stuff and needs
to keep their mucky boots or trainers away from their work stuff or other gear in their bag. It's also fantastic for keeping your childs PE trainers or football boots away from their books in their school
bag on PE days and it looks a lot cooler than carrying them in a carrier bag.
I bought this bag from Sports Direct last year for £4.99 and current prices seem to range from
around £5 to £7 depending on where you shop.
From every footballer across Britain who has ever had hopes of gracing the pitches of Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge, to those who simply enjoyed a kick around on a sunday afternoon or in the park after school, they all had one thing in common, and that was the necessity of a boot bag to carry your boots and shin pads in as you walk down to the local field. A boot bags purpose is to look after your prize possesions and ensure that the evening you spent cleaning them the night before does not go to waste when you turn up and your mates are chucking mud around. They also became quite a fashionable thing to turn up to a game with; well it looked far better than coming down with a plastic bag your mum had just got from the local supermarket.
The bag is large enough to do its job, without being too large to carry around. I can easily fit in a pair of football boots, my shin pads, and a bottle of water without too much fuss. This means that you don't turn up ready to play with a hand full of stuff looking clunky and unfashionable! The bag is good quality, and fairly strong, and it has lasted me over 2 years which obviously shows that it is well made. The other bonus is that you can whack it in the washing machine, meaning that when you come home with your boots and boot bag absolutely caked in mud, it is not too difficult to get it back working to the standard that it was once at. The bag also has a good carry handle on it meaning that you don't have to get the mud caked bag all over your hands and fingers, so another shower once you have got home isn't necessary! This is handy! I believe i bought my adidas boot bag for about £6-8, and they come in a range of prices depending on which website or shop you use, and also how large the boot bag you require is.
A boot bag is, of course, an essential item for anyone who has any football boots to lug around. Turn up without one and you not only look foolish, but get home muddier than you were at half time sipping on your lucozade! Although there are a number of other sports manufacturers who make similar products, i really wouldn't have any trouble in recommending the above product. It does the purpose of what i bought it for, nothing less, nothing more; and that is all you can ask of a bag designed essentially to cart around your pride and joy!
I remember the first time I took my brand new football boots to school. I must have been eleven years old at the time. It was my first PE lesson where we would be playing football on the field, hence the need for football boots. So I popped my shiny new boots into my school bag with my other football kit, school books, pencil case and dinner. Then we had an hour of full on football in the wet mud of our school field. When we returned to the changing room me and my boots were covered in mud! Not really overly worried about this at the time I shoved them in to my bag without thinking. When I got home I realised I had a made a big mistake. Mother was non to happy about the state of my school bag and it's contents! What I needed was one of these! An Adidas Essentials Shoe Bag.
Back then I never did get a boot bag, I always just used a carrier bag to store my muddy football boots in. It did the job but it was less than ideal. This is why it's a great idea to have a bag like this! I must admit I don't even own a pair of proper football boots these days, but the Adidas Shoe Bag is certainly not limited to football boots. I think where this is most handy of me is when I play golf. Golf spikes often get clogged up with mud and grass and even though I clean most of it off after a round it still tend to end up all over my boot. Hence the Adidas Shoe Bag. This keeps my golf shoes neatly tucked away and keeps the mud and grass out of my boot.
These are also handy if you are going on holiday. Stick your trainers in this bag and then pop it into your suitcase. The shape of the bag makes it quite a nice snug fit. These also come in handy when my trainers get covered in mud if we've been out walking somewhere, if I have a spare pair in the car, I pop the dirty ones in here and put my clean ones on.
I do a lot of walking and it occurred to me that the bag might be good for storing my walking boots, however they do not quite fit as they are pretty big and chunky. One thing they are good for though is putting my crampons in. Crampons are the metal spikes you wear on walking boots when your walking in snow and ice, as they are so sharp you don't really want to just put them in your rucksack unguarded, so slipping them in this bag is a great idea.
There are plenty of other uses for this Adidas shoe bag. It would be great as a wash bag when you go on holiday. It is just a nice size to fit all your basic toiletries in and as I said earlier, it fits nicely in a suit case. One of the best things about this little black bag is the price. You can get one of these for £5! So it certainly not going to break the bank.
Overall the quality is nothing special, but for such a cheap price you can't expect to much. There is one zip that runs down the front of the bag and then your shoes fit neatly inside. This is a good all round bag that has lots of very simple but practical uses. Chances are you will find this comes in handy at some point and with it being such good value you really have nothing to lose in getting one.
==Adidas Shoe Bag==
I bought this boot bag for Himself on his Birthday for his football boots so that I wasn't continually cleaning the floor of the mud and grass that he was leaving a trail of when coming back from his football games. He seems suitably impressed by it and me more so as it definitely has made the hallway less dirty and thus less cleaning!
++Price and Availability==
I purchased this Adidas Shoe bag from our local Sports Direct Store. It was one of many that they had in stock there but it was one of the cheapest branded bags which is really why I picked it up. I think you could probably get a non-branded one for cheaper but it only cost £4.99p which I feel is about all I wanted to pay for an item such as this. I have just had a little look on line and it seems this is more or less the right price that you would expect to pay for this item and it is also widely available from a whole host of different online stores but because of posting and packing it will probably work out a little more expensive to buy it online.
==Look and Design==
The bags look was something that I quite liked because it is rather plain and doesn't stand out too much. With the black colours and the Adidas logo printed on the back in a dark grey colour it doesn't look too offensive like some of the other ones that Sports Direct had in stock at the time.
The bag is not excessively large either and is prefect size for a pair of football boots. It has one zip which goes all the way across the top of the bag and down the size which gives an easy to open design to allow access to the pocket. The boots can be put in and out with ease and there is no pulling or pushing to try and get them in or out.
There is handle on one end of the shoe bag which seems to be fastened to the bag pretty well and is made of a tough material. The whole bag is easy to wipe clean and keep looking relatively new. The handle is not too big and is just large enough to be able to carry the bag with ease.
Like I said having put Himself's football shoes in and out of the bag I can say that it is a simple to use item which is designed well and made well also. The zip is strong and hard wearing and even when I shove a few other little bits in the bag and fill it to bursting the zip seems to take the pressure well.
I have been able to clean the bag with no problems and even the handle which has had mud embedded into the groves of the material will take a good brush scrub without looking at all worn. It is easy enough to carry about even when it has the boots in it and I feel makes good sence to keep the shoes stored in it when not using them
It has to be said that for £5 you can't really go wrong with a simple and stylish bag such as this. It does all you need it to do and is made to a high standard. There is nothing negative that I can say about the bag and for that reason I feel that it deserves a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation! It has saved me a lot of cleaning and hoovering I can tell you!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
In addition to the indoor football trainers I bought I also purchased the Adidas Essential Shoe Bag to carry them in. Normally known as boot bags they have always been an essential part of my time at school carrying filthy football boots around with me. I am sure the majority of men reading this review will remember the days of owning one of these and you can now not underestimate their importance when it comes to keeping coursework clean and dry!
Nowadays I use my bootbag as a convenience more than anything. Instead of carrying a large holdall i can simply pop my football trainers in the bag along with any other essential items for the journey to the football centre. I have experienced a variety of other uses for this bag, other than that to carry trainers/boots in. When spending a lads' weekend away I have had friends who bring all their weekend 'essentials' in a boot bag - now that IS travelling light!
The Adidas Essential Shoe Bag is well designed although it is also basic at the same time. Made from 100% polyester it is suitable for carrying your muddy boots in, and with dimensions of 36cm x 12cm x 18cm it will accomodate all shapes and sizes of footwear. A loop of material at one end of the bag forms a handle and there is a simple single zip to keep your boots safe with. The word 'Adidas' is prominent on the side of the bag and the black colour is essential for hiding any dirt that may have come from your footwear! At around the £5 mark they can be picked up from almost all sports shops and are essential for any sports enthusiast during the winter months especially!
Adidas Essential Shoe Bag
Of all the sports equipment that I own this Adidas shoe bag is probably among the simplest and most used. I am sure most people will be familiar with or own a sports shoe bag. This is one that I acquired from my husband when he bought a newer larger bag to store his trainers in after running sessions. This shoe bag is a thin, light weight bag that you can put your dirty shoes in so that they won't rub against or touch anything else you might be carrying. I often carry this bag separately when I use it but from time to time I also put this bag (with shoes included) into my gym rucksack. It does have a small handle attached to make it easier to grab hold of or carry.
There really is not that many uses for this bag other than to carry your dirty trainers back and forth from the gym or any other sporting activity. I do also use this bag when I am going on holiday or away for the weekend when I want to take some shoes with me but don't want to place them directly next to my clothes.
I find that I have to watch when I zip this closed as the inside material can often get caught in the zip and it can be a bit fiddly or annoying to get open again. Despite this small nuisance this is a pretty robust and durable bag, I doubt that I will need to buy another one in the near future. The bag is a nice size and my trainers easily fit into it (for those that want specifics the dimensions are 36 cm x 18 cm x 12 cm).
In the past I have also put this bag through the washing machine with some towels and it has always dried out nicely. This bag does tend to get a little dirty because it is carrying dirty items. It is also easy to give it a quick wipe from time to time as it is made from easily cleanable material as it is made from 100 percent polyester.
I asked my husband and he believes he paid £5 for this from a local sports shop. Honestly, five pound seems about right for this bag as there isn't that much to it, it really is a basic shell to hold your shoes in to keep the rest of your clothes clean.
This gets a four out of five stars from me, it really isn't that exciting an item but it serves its function well. If you have dirty trainers to carry from place to place then you could do a lot worse than this Adidas shoe bag. I would happily recommend this to anyone looking for something similar, it really has been a handy bag for first my husband then me.
