Best Waterproof Shoe Bags for Travel

There are few greater annoyances than opening up your suitcase to find your shampoo or face wash leaked in transit, potentially ruining your clothes and shoes. Waterproof shoe bags help ensure your precious footwear is safe from any spills. These zip-up bags are typically made of nylon, which repels water and stains to keep shoes dry and clean. Plus, the material is machine washable for easy upkeep. Ahead, shop great styles that will accommodate shoes for the whole family, up to a men’s size 14.
