10 Perfect Pairs Of Shoes For Summer Music Fests — Plus, 1 More Surprise

With Lolla wristbands coming in the mail and Pitchfork already a not-so distant memory, festival season in Chicago is officially in full swing. We admit that, here at R29, we’ve spent almost equal time planning a killer outfit as we have trying to figure out how exactly we’ll be able to see The Postal Service and Mumford and Sons at the same time. As much as we wish teleportation were a real thing, we’ve learned that the only way to guarantee we catch our favorite acts is by straight up hoofin’ it.
Lucky for you, we’ve gathered 10 pairs of our favorite festival footwear, the ones that are guaranteed to keep you on your feet throughout the day. This means securely strapped sandals, flats, even a slim rain boot in case Mother Nature doesn’t seem to be loving Lana Del Rey's set. We know you’ll be running outside all day, and with these shoes you won’t be sacrificing everything for style — which is why we’ve added an extra bonus. Everything here is $100 or less!
