Pinkification, part eleven billion

It’s been a while since I had a grump about things being pink for no reason but it still annoys me a lot. The latest version of this came about this week from when I went to buy a new pair of trainers. I’ve been wearing these ones that I was sent in 2013 so it was about time that I went to buy a new pair. I headed to DW Sports after work and had someone begrudgingly help me (sorry to get you to do your job, mate) find a pair of trainers that were suitable for what I do at the gym. The shoe section was bad enough for neon colours but I found a pair that were fairly dark and plain.

So then I headed over to the bag section to find a new gym bag…

Seriously. What’s with the colours? All I’m looking for is a plain bag, with a shoe section if possible, that’s not completely ugly. I’m using a Quiksilver duffle bag that I bought at uni on a whim in 2003 (and have never really used since then) but it’s starting to get battered and the lining is peeling after a years daily use.

If you’ve seen a nice bag, please tell me. I can’t carry a bag that is brighter than the sun.
