This time of year is full of festivals to choose from. And just as festival choices cater for all musical tastes, our collection of boots and ankle boots also cater for all style choices.
Gone are the days where festival wear was whatever you found at the bottom of your clothes cupboard. ‘Festival-chic’ has become its own genre of styling in the fashion world. Take a look around and you’ll find boho looks, western inspired styles, and statement metallics.
So whether you’re going to a city festival, or a party in a field, our collection of boots and ankle boots will keep you dancing all day (and all night) long!
The Best Western
The western look is perfect for a festival setting. American-cool simply goes hand in hand with guitars doesn’t it?
If the west is calling you, then we’d recommend picking boots with a rustic look. Light browns are great for a summer colour palette, and looks gorgeous too. No western look would be complete without some denim, so pair these with a pair of jeans.
These western inspired ankle boots are just perfect. The artisan calf leather can be polished and brushed to reveal different tones of colour for a rustic effect. Available in a standard or wider fit, as well as an embroidered taupe suede option!Shop Paxton
Brampton is our mid-calf casual boot, with a straight cut ankle and round toe for comfort all day long. The shorter boot height means you can push the boat out and go for a ‘gaucho’ look. Just like all of our boots – Brampton is available in a choice of calf sizes for that beautiful fit.Shop Brampton
The Party in a Field
A quintessential music festival will most likely take place in the countryside, in some sort of a field. With the unpredictable summer weather, you can’t go wrong with a tread sole. This is also a great option if you’re after a ‘tough-luxe’ look – another popular choice whilst dancing along to guitar solos!
Our recommended boots are so versatile, you could almost pair with anything! Dresses, jeans, skirts or denim shorts – the choice is yours.
These flat, lace up knee high boots are a customer favourite and the ultimate in casual-cool. The laces allow adjustment for a flawless fit – and of course Marvel is available in a choice of calf sizes. What’s more, the brogue inspired detailing adds a touch of style that’s really unique to this boot.Shop Marvel
The ‘baby sister’ of our Marvel boot, Balla is a classic brogue lace up ankle boot. The gorgeous tan leather is a great summer colour, but if you’re devoted to black you can opt for our Black Leather option too. For the ultimate in comfort, these are available in a standard or wider fit.Shop Balla
The Statement Outfit
Another popular option is the ‘rave-inspired’ look. Think all things shiny and bright – from glitter in your hair to sequined tops and metallic textures. If you’re all about making a statement, we’ve got you covered too!
Our collection of metallic footwear is your first port of call. Pair with a sparkly top or a floaty dress if you’d prefer to tone down the glow!
Combining two statement features – animal print and silver metallic leather. But don’t worry – you won’t have to compromise on comfort with these statement trainers. They’re slip on and feature a comfortable padded in sock for dancing all day. They’re also available in a cool Slate Grey Leather if silver is a little too adventurous.Shop Crantock
Whilst Edison may be a classic Chelsea boot, our Pewter Metallic Leather option is anything but ordinary. The low heel offers an elegant look whilst still being a practical boot. Edison is also available in a standard or wider fit.Shop Edison
The City Festival
If the thought of spending a weekend in a field fills you with fear – then perhaps you’re planning on going to one of the many city-based music festivals out there. The great thing with city festivals is that you can opt for a chic, sophisticated look without worrying about the elements. This is where a sophisticated take on the boho look could be a really great option. Think florals and lightweight dresses. With any outfit that’s reliant on patterns, it’s best to keep the footwear more neutral. Either classic black or understated taupe work great.
Another great Chelsea boot, Isidor, have a sturdy block heel so will offer all day comfort. One of our most versatile ankle boots, these will look great with a floaty, boho dress! And if you’re after a darker colour, they’re also available in Black Leather and come in a standard or wider fit.Shop Crantock
An absolutely gorgeous ankle boot, Emilia, features some lovely detailing. The subtle studs and two buckled straps give this a casual yet stylish look and the mid-height heel will offer all day comfort. The taupe suede is a great colour for summer wear – what could be better?Shop Emilia
