Booming music, muddy fields and overpriced drinks, it’s official — festival season is back. And with its arrival comes the age-old question: what shoes should you wear? 

Whether you’re queuing for your favourite artist’s set, or just standing in line for a wristband, the best festival shoes should be comfortable and supportive. But while comfort is a priority, wearing sneakers that make you look and feel good is a must. Regardless of the unpredictable weather or heaving crowds, embrace every crease, scuff and stain, and choose a pair you can make memories in. Below, we’ve selected the kicks that should feature in your summer line-up. From the Nike Dunk to the fan-favourite Yeezy 350, step into festival season with these five sneakers.

Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 650 Navy

Contrary to popular belief, white trainers are not a risky choice for festivals — case and point? The Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 650 Navy. Practical and stylish in equal measure, this sneaker from the Aime Leon Dore and New Balance partnership is durable, lightweight and built to be on the move all day. It’s crafted from soft leather that’s easy to wipe clean when stepped on, and breathable perforations on the side panel make it the perfect kick for warmer days.

Yeezy Foam Runner Stone Sage

Although not strictly a trainer, the Yeezy Foam Runner Stone Sage is next to deserve a headlining spot on your packing list. Easily adaptable to any situation, this slip-on shoe from Kanye West’s collection can be worn in the shower, on the dance floor and around the campsite. A chunky midsole and a tractioned outer sole means boosted comfort and a supported step, balanced by the foam construction that moulds to your feet.

Nike Dunk Low Green Glow Green Womens

Stand out from the crowd this festival season in the Nike Dunk Low Green Glow Green Womens. Dressed in a vibrant shade of green, this iconic trainer is sure to add a burst of colour to your wardrobe or backpack. Comfort comes courtesy of the Nike Air technology in the sole unit, while the stylish, streamlined shape nods to its basketball heritage. An ideal option for festivals and off-duty days alike, this Nike Dunk is a certified must-have.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Reflective

A sneaker that needs no introduction, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Reflective is a popular choice for festivals and every day after. Famed for being Ye’s debut silhouette with adidas, the flexible Primeknit upper creates a snug fit, while Boost cushioning underfoot delivers unrivalled comfort. On the side, SPLY-350 branding is placed on the ever-present stripe, complemented by a neutral colour scheme that will work well with all your festival attire.
