The importance of footwear at festivals is incredibly underrated. Whether you want a statement pair or a pair to match your outfit, actually picking a pair of festival shoes is super important. This is a key part of your festival outfit. Looking for inspiration for accessories? We hand-picked our favourite festival neckwear for Splendour in the Grass.
The right pair of kicks will make or break your festival experience. Can you dance with sore feet? No, you cannot. Yes, I am speaking from experience.
So to give you the best experience and outfit possible, we've broken down the best festival shoes so you can boogie the night away.
One of the most popular forms of festival fashion is the good old sneaker. These are always a good option and a fan favourite as they are comfortable and are built to last you throughout the day. If you want to opt for a comfortable option, then you really can't go past a pair of these.
Plus, with so many different styles, you can really find something that suits your taste and your outfit!
Nike Air Force 1 Low Womens
Adidas Originals Falcon Women's
Fila Disruptor II Women's
Converse All Star Ox Women's
Converse - Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Hi - Women's
Vans - Old Skool
The second most popular pair of festival shoes has to be boots. In terms of practicality, these are an awesome option. Good boots are super sturdy, comfortable and will protect your feet from the festival elements.
Someone step on you while dancing? Not a problem. Did it rain and it's muddy? Bring it on. Like the 90s grunge look? Then look no further.
Dr. Martens - Jadon
Dr. Martens 1460 Cherry Boots
The Scorpio Boots
Billini - Kaiya Boots In Tan
Billini Tio Boots White
These aren’t exactly the most practical pair of shoes but they definitely scream festival. Platforms go that extra little mile and pull an outfit together.
They also give you a super convenient height boost, so being at the back of a crowd isn't an issue. It's super handy if you're not on the taller end of the spectrum. If you want to wear heels to a festival (which isn't always the best idea), platforms are the perfect way to avoid both sinking into the soil and getting sore feet.
Windsor Smith - Womens Lord
Dr. Martens - Molly Glitter
Caterpillar - Intruder
Dr. Martens - Shriver Hi
ROC Boots Australia Indiana Boots
ROC - Womens Pampas
I'll be honest, I'm on the fence with sandals at a festival. They aren't a super practical option when it comes to going to a festival, but if you like the boho look, then I totally get it.
Sandals at a summer festival are a good option if you want an easy breezy beautiful outfit but just watch out for your toes.
Converse - One Star Sandals
Birkenstock - Arizona Narrow
Arms of Eve - Levana Beaded Sandals
Spurr - Jenna Woven Mules
Asos Design Fireworks Knee High Gladiator Flat Sandals
Asos Design Wide Fit Jenica Espadrille Sandals
A festival is somewhere that your quirky fashion flag can fly high. Therefore, there isn't anything wrong with rocking a bit of colour.
Whether you want shoes as your statement piece or you just feel like looking like a walking rainbow, colourful shoes just work at a festival. Plus, with red boots being such a hot pick this season, you'll totally be on trend.
Nike Air Force 1 Sage Low Women's
Nike - Womens Air Max 270
Adidas - Womens Falcon
Converse - One Star Platform Sneakers
Puma Cali White and Pink Sneakers
Nike Yellow Air Max 97 Sneakers
