Anyone tired of bulky gym duffle bags would fare well with a quality gym backpack with a shoe compartment.

"Finding the perfect gym and work backpack can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. You’ll need compartments for your daily essentials like a laptop and business items while still having enough room for bulky stuff like a change of clothes and shoes. And although you could just use a regular gym backpack, most workout bags can look too sporty and out of place for an office."

Cue the EDGE35 Backpack. This backpack hits the magic combo of work-appropriate style and gym-friendly functionality. Scoring best backpack with shoe compartments and best gym - work backpack voted by the carry pros at

Backpackies Review of the EDGE35 Backpack


The internal shoe compartment on the EDGE35 Backpack makes the transition from work to gym easier than ever.

"Not only can these separate compartments be used to carry your shoes, but they can also double as pockets for dirty laundry, towels and other gym items you may want to keep separate. This versatility gives you the freedom of going to the gym at any time without having to lug around a separate gym bag."

EDGE35 Backpack with shoe compartments 


The EDGE35 is more than just a gym bag! With features includes a 17" laptop compartment, multiple organizer pockets and dual bottles, this is one seriously smart backpack. 

"The King Kong EDGE35 is a sleek, durable and feature-packed gym backpack with shoe compartment that has quickly become one of our favorites. This is due to its roomy 35-liter main compartment that’s perfect for training gear like weight lifting belts, boxing gloves and other bulkier items. On light duty days the magnetic buckle side straps allow you to compress the backpack for a sleeker profile."
