I really lie the larger tote but it would be nice if it had some type of closer. Perhaps a zipper or two sturdy snaps.
We have one with a zipper! It's a different shape. The one you picked is great for traveling. I toss all of my shoes in that bag and use the one with the zipper for my clothes. If you would like to return the one you ordered and get the one with the zipper then let us know. We are happy to exchange it.
