Guys, It’s time to stop throwing your dirty shoes in with the rest of your gym clothes and gear.

It’s an age-old problem for gym-goers: where to put those sweaty, dirty kicks. Carrying them outside your gym bag (in addition to your everyday bag) can be too much of a hassle, but at the same time, you don’t want those shoes making your gym bag stinkier than it has to be. Luckily, there is an elegant solution in the form of a gym bag with a shoe compartment.

A handful of gym bags come equipped with a small pocket designed specifically for a pair of shoes. Not only does this keep your bag cleaner, but it’s also super convenient when organizing your bag and quickly accessing your stuff (no digging past the shoes on top). But finding an affordable, high-quality gym bag with a shoe compartment can be tough, so we rounded up some highly-rated options that you can buy right now on Amazon. Check them out below.

At 40L, this gym bag offers slightly more room, so it’s ideal if you’re carrying a basketball or other large equipment. With a shoe compartment and a wet pocket it’s great for the gym, but it has a modern look that makes it a good travel bag as well.
