You may be tempted to wear your cutest thong sandals or cheeky wedges to an outdoor music festival, but please resist that urge!
After all, with no seating available, you’ll be spending hours on your feet, so comfort is of the essence. And, while open sandals and flip-flops may sound comfortable, they’ll leave your exposed toes and heels susceptible to being stepped on by overzealous concertgoers. As for high heels and wedges, they hardly lend themselves to hours of dancing, jumping up and down, and fist pumping.
With cushioned insoles and non-slip soles, lace-up canvas sneakers and oxford shoes are the footwear of choice for outdoor music festivals. Practicality aside, the right canvas shoes or lightweight oxfords will convey a laid-back ease that will make your concert ensemble feel all the more playful and youthful — whether it involves a floral print dress, a lacy mini dress, a flirty romper, or denim cut-offs and a graphic tee.
Paired with a pleated skirt and crop top or rolled-up boyfriend jeans and a racerback tank top, the Bongo “Seattle” shoe adds a feminine energy to your ensemble thanks to the pretty floral print on their black canvas uppers.
For a Boho chic look, try pairing high-waisted shorts and a lace swing crop top, a fit-and-flare eyelet dress, an off-the-shoulder summer dress, or a loose-fitting frock with crochet lace cut-outs with the Route 66 “Cindy” oxford shoes, which feature breathable crocheted lace uppers and woven seam edging. To turn your tootsies into twinkle toes, choose the Route 66 “Candy” casual flats, featuring blush-toned fabric uppers adorned with shimmering rhinestones.
