Our Favorite Bags by adidas

As summer comes to a close, we’ll spend less time packing beach totes and more time filling school bags. It’s back to the daily grind ­of projects, homework, and living on the go. Carrying your weekly essentials is crucial and adidas makes toting textbooks, laptops, and school supplies easy and safe with durable, thoughtfully created packs.

adidas uses innovative features like climacool technology to keep you cool while lugging your bag and FreskPAK ventilation to inhibit odor-causing bacteria. Materials like tricot-lining help bags and backpacks hold their shape and show minimal wear and tear, even with frequent use. Padded laptop sleeves, water bottle pockets, and tons of organization slots ensure every item has a place. You can keep your individuality too with unique screen-printed designs, bright colors or more classic tones.

Almost all of adidas bags offer the same technology regardless of size or type. From totebags to backpacks and gym bags, most styles have thick straps or padded handles to make all-day carrying more comfortable. So which adidas bag style is right for you?  Well that depends on your individual fashion sense! But, here are a few of our favorites to consider:

After receiving the art entries, it was awesome to see how much our kids know about the planet and how to care for it! Show of hands: Did your child teach you and your family how to recycle?! Yep, ours too!
