    At the gym, I see guys who keep their workout shoes in a special bag inside their regular gym bag. Does anyone here do that? Is there a purpose or benefit to doing this?

    I work at a club and haven't seen it. I also coach Cross Country/Track and see it all the time there. In that setting it's primarily to keep the rest of their belongings clean, as the shoes get dirty from running on the trails and streets. Competition spikes in a bag are common too, but is to prevent the spikes from ripping their clothes - doesn't apply to the gym setting though.

    i use a 24hour gym and it is very very filthy. I use scuba shoes and wash them every time. Mostly to get the sweat off. The shoes are wet and i hang them to the out side of my gym bag to dry.

    -i wear the shoes in the shower too
    -the gym has an extreme viral bacteria count and you dont want to walk around w/o shoes.

    Well if you go to venu35's gym it sounds like it would be a good idea given that there are used condoms lying around. Who knows what else you might be stepping in.

    Sounds like a recipe for mold and nastiness. I do have a bag with a separate vented shoe compartment. It's supposed to be a "tri" bag.

    This reminds me of my Navy days on an aircraft carrier. There were two open decks, open to the wind and whatnot; the flight deck and below it the hangar deck. The hangar deck was open due to the elevators on the sides that took the airplanes between the two decks.

    The airplanes would drip hydraulic fluid, as well as aviation fuel. A lot of guys spit, and would spit on the deck when on an open deck.

    As you can imagine, the bottom of your shoes or boots were pretty nasty.

    In our sleeping (berthing) area you kept your shoes or boots on and when you went to the shower you wore flip flops. Some guy had the job of mopping and polishing the floor in the berthing area, every day. But five minutes after it dried guys would be walking on it again.

    Some guys would walk around the berthing area in their bare feet. I thought that was really bizarre.

    This is not the exact bag I have but very similar. It has separate compartments for shoes. The interior is very rugged and easy to wipe clean. Obviously the whole point is to keep dirt from your shoes from getting all over your clothes. And since I change into weight lifting shows on leg day it really comes in handy.
