Musical festivals tend to happen during the warmer months, which means feet need to breathe—and be protected from shoe stomping and dirt. To get a little ventilation and coverage, follow in the supermodel’s footsteps (no pun intended) and opt for boots with perforated materials or cutout details. Trust—sensitive noses nearby will thank you.

Perhaps the most beloved shoe of festival season is the sneaker. Why? It’s practical. It’s a dance marathon, after all. While we know the white sneaker is trending, let’s be honest: that baby is going to get dirty, fast. Instead, opt for vibrant kicks that have some personality. If a you’re really set on white kicks, opt for super-affordable ones that you don’t mind throwing away if it gets too trashed.
Whether it’s a combat, Chelsea, thigh-high or whatever, boots will know no bounds come music festival season. While plain boots work, put a little pizzazz into them with embellished details. Studs, florals, embroidery, chains…sky’s the limit.
The queen of Coachella has spoken: Fringe will always win at a music fest. The boho vibe is not going anywhere soon.

We wouldn’t normally recommend wearing open-toe shoes to a music festival. But should you be as daring as the Victoria’s Secret model, make sure that your warm-weather friendly kicks channel a certain vibe, whether that be boho, dessert-chic or just pool-party friendly. Basic sandals are boring for an event like this.
