If you were of the female persuasion and going to a music festival, it used to just mean one thing. At least when it came to what to put on your feet. And that,as any fule kno, is Wellies. Which is fair enough, who doesn’t want dry feet as the heavens open? Plus there’s the added bonus of channelling one’s inner Kate Moss. Only problem is they’re so so heavy, they chafe your legs, and when (?!) the sun finally decides to make an appearance, there’s nothing more hot and sweaty than encasing your feet in rubber. Plus we don’t know about you, but whenever ShoesieQ’s seen pics of herself in a pair she’s looks more like a wannabe Alan Titchmarsh groupie than anything :(
So, what’s the alternative? Well, you can go two ways. The first, and most obvious route, is to grab your trusty Converse. Now, to be honest, we’re not entirely sure how they made the humble sneaker look cool on everyone, but they do, and that’s just a fact.
The other suggestion will work a treat if you’re going to one of the more “hippy” fests, e.g. Latitude, Glasto and Bestival and the like, are these babies by Adesso. Colourful, fun, comfy, fully machine washable and only £30, they’re made for festival feet. Plus, and this is where they beat most Converse, they have a platform of about an inch. Which might, just might,be enough for you to peer over the shoulder of that annoyingly tall man who has just decided to stand in front of you, so you still have a fighting chance of actually see the band!
And yes, ShoesieQ is fully aware that her last post was also on Adesso shoes. Plus no, she is not, we repeat, not obsessed by them. But she is a bit worried that they’re about to sell out, and she wants the last few pairs to go to good homes…………. aka those belonging to people such as you, dear reader :)
