They are my absolute favorites for travel since the material does not retain dirt, they are shockingly lightweight, and the zipper is flawless. Of course I had an advantage when choosing the sizes, as I simply took a couple pairs of shoes into the factory store to verify that my sizing was correct after I placed my order.
    Do you wash the aether bags that you use for shoes? I haven't experimented yet - one of the reasons I've been procrastinating using them for shoes....
    The end pocket cubes make sense - I definitely would want the full aether (no mesh) to keep shoe dirt inside but I don't think the A45 ends are big enough for my work boots - I'll have to check.

    @G42, I have not been washing them, but I think if they looked dirty a swipe with a damp cloth would likely suffice to remove dirt. Note, I looked back at the packing cube specs, and I think for my larger shoes I may have used a small packing cube instead since the depth is bigger than the end pockets. I suspect these might be too small for packing boots unless you wear a really small shoe size.

    ETA: Now I am confused, since it looks like the small packing cubes are only available with mesh, and I thought they used to be available with only solid aether as an option. Please excuse my possibly faulty memory.

    They did used to be available both ways, but they disco'd the all aether versions of the non-end cubes back during the big packing cube reset a year or so ago
