With summer just around the corner, Coachella is about to kick off a promisingly incredible festival season. While I’m still trying to decide which of my 10 floppy hats to bring, maxi skirt or romper, how much fringe is TOO much fringe etc. it’s sometimes easy to overlook the arguably most important part of the festival outfit: the shoes. Uncomfortable footwear is your one-way ticket to a miserable festival experience. After 6 hours in the heat, rain or mud, the last thing you want is to be running to the delightful porta-potties or between stages to catch your favourite artist in 5 inch heeled booties. Trust me. The trick is to find a balance of comfort and cute.
On my 2014 festival wish list? Gladiator-style sandals (like the ones from Free People), ankle booties, and florals (like those from Dr. Martens or Nike). These 6 finds top my list of ideal festival footwear.
1) Free People Decibel Sandals
2) Sam Edelman Louie Fringe Booties
3) Doc Marten 1460 Victorian Flowers Boots
4) Dolce Vita Yuri Booties
5) Nanette Lepore Double Time Slip Ons
6) Nike x Liberty High Tops
