Throwback bags are a lifesaver. You did not know it yet, but there is a gaping hole in your pending summertime agenda. It is not a lack of activities, though. What you have not yet figured out is how to get all your gear all over creation to all these events all summer (which, let’s be honest, 90% of them include water). Enter the Throwback - hero bag of all seasons, but especially summer.
This amazing backpack has a huge capacity, split into two compartments. The cinch-top portion of the bag is spacious enough for almost anything you would want to pack, like changes of clothes or sports gear. The fully-lined bottom portion is water resistant, making it the perfect place to stash your picnic lunch (complete with ice packs) or soggy swimwear and towels. Combined, you have one bag that is going to hold everything you need on any given summer day- just sling it over your shoulders and off you go!
But your summer does not include everyone participating in the same activities at the same times, naturally. Did I mention it comes in four spectacular colors (that coordinate with your Fitkicks shoes, if you’re a matching kind of person)? This way everyone can have their own bag packed with just what they need, and there is no chance for the dreaded bag-mix-up. Check out the perfectly neutral White Throwback Back Pack Bag. Added bonus: multiple bags spread out the load, not leaving you to be the designated pack mule for the entire summer.
So pick the one that speaks to you, pack it full, and greet summer with a smile ... you got this!
Sizes for Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes are set by the manufacturers. Here are their published size recommendations:
There are no other sizes of authentic Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes, though you may see them listed in other marketplaces with different size equivalents. Those changes are usually made by the retailer and represent their opinions.
CC Sidewalk prefers to list the manufacturers’ size recommendations as the standard. But we do offer our own opinions.
The Fit kicks shoe upper is mostly spandex and quite stretchy. However, the toe patch is microfiber and does not stretch much. We recommend one size larger if you are near the top of a size bracket, and definitely the larger size if you are in-between. The ankle opening is high on the foot. The shoes are true to size as long as your feet and ankles are pretty much average (aka medium). If they are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger. The larger size will not be loose or floppy.
The Sidekicks shoes are meant to cover a larger size range, and the upper openings are elastic with reasonable stretch. The Energy/Glitter line offers the most stretchable uppers, followed by Original and Animal. The Patent line is pretty stiff and does not stretch much at all. If your feet are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger. The larger size may be a little bit loose.
