Coca-Cola continually reinvents itself in a way that is relevant for each generation. We thought it was a perfect blend to bring into our rapidly-growing sneaker bag space and the results speak for themselves.”

The Sneaker Duffel is a take on one of HEX’s most popular designs and features two side sneaker pockets with the main center compartment for clothing and a laptop compartment.  The Sneaker Duffel retails for $170.


The Sneaker Backpack is a fully functional #DeviceReady backpack that features a unique sneaker compartment that is accessed through the back of the back.  The Sneaker Backpack retails for $160.


The Sneaker Sling is especially noteworthy as this is its first appearance in a product lineup and acts as a fanny pack as well as sneaker transport, while also incorporating HEX’s #DeviceReady storage pocket.  The Sneaker Sling retails for $70.

The Coca-Cola by HEX Capsule is available at hexbrand.com and many premium retailers domestically and internationally.
