A little larger, please!

When I first saw this product on the STP site, I was delighted. As I often go to the gym in my athletic duds and simply change footwear there, a shoebag is frequently more needful than a full-sized gym bag. And this one appeared to fit the bill. I've just tried out my new shoe bag, and it does accommodate my 9.5 M Asics cross-trainers. But the fit is pretty snug; and had I not gone to the Eagle Creek website and looked carefully at the photo of this bag [...] shoes, I might have struggled indefinitely to get my trainers in.

The bag is designed to hold shoes side by side (face up), heel ends up and toe ends down. However, this is not self-evident; and other customers may have tried, as I did, to put their shoes in the way you would usually find them in a shoebox -- which doesn't quite work.

I have yet to buy an Eagle Creek product that wasn't well thought out. This bag is no exception. But there ought to be a card inside showing exactly how to insert one's gym shoes; and more generous sizing is definitely in order. For now, those with large feet -- like my husband and daughter -- are out of luck.
