I play basketball and go to the gym frequently and I always need a bag for clothes, shoes, and miscellaneous. I usually always use free bags from games or school, but my recent one was ripping and the free ones usually don't have pockets. So this bag seemed so good on the reviews and I bought mine for less than $10. It holds my basketball shoes, a towel and clothes easily! The pink is exactly like the picture and per other reviews, I tied the ends of the strings an extra time so they wouldn't slip through.
