Best Cotton Shoe Bags for Keeping Odors At Bay

If you’re looking for a way to protect your shoes from dust and dirt, you may want to think about using cotton shoe bags. The material is super lightweight, and while it’s not water-resistant like nylon (which many shoe bags are made with), it’s much more breathable so your shoes don’t stay stinky. Whether you need them for packing a suitcase or simply on your morning commute, these cotton shoe bags are great options. Each of our picks features a drawstring closure for ease of access and will fit most shoe sizes.
