How spacious are the side zipper pockets?...
How spacious are the side zipper pockets? Do you think they could hold a pair of shoes? (one on each side)
It's hard to visualize, but the pocketing goes in two directions--one under the handle, the other under the side pocket. That allows the two pockets to be spaced well and be deep enough for a large computer cable or two.
However, though both are good sized and will fit my dainty Wmns 7 Chacos fine, they'll not fit my hiking not my running shoes.
