Sun, sand and summer festivals
Summer festivals are all we can think about right now! A pair of rain and mud proof shoes is an essential item for a summer festival, along with sandals for when the sun decides to shine. Probably the biggest festival of the season, Glastonbury officially kicks off on Wednesday 24th June this year (meaning there are only 20 days to go!). Really… who needs an excuse for a new pair of shoes?
British summertime is hardly renowned for its reliable weather, so here are a couple of our top picks for festival footwear.
Our Dr Martens Drench Rubber Welly Boots Spots with Black & White Polka Dots are perfect for the festival season. The vulcanised rubber uppers give great water protection, with an eight-eyelet lace-up over an envelope tongue which lets you adjust the boot to your own fit but still keeping the water out. The perfect women’s wellington for whatever the weather has to throw at you and a music festival must have. Rock out and get your Dr Martens Wellington Drench Boots today!
For the men, you can never go wrong with a pair of Colorado P717695 Leather Mens Caterpillar (CAT) boots. The sole is Goodyear welted to the upper and features a deep, widely cleated design in brown rubber to afford you excellent grip even in wet, uneven conditions!
Don’t forget your extra essentials!
Wet wipes, toilet roll & hand sanitizer: Even if the weather is glorious, expect to be covered in sweat, grass stains and plenty of mud. Wet wipes will become your best friend as it’s unlikely you’ll be able to get a proper wash until you get home.
Dry shampoo: One item that will always come in useful for festival season is a good quality dry shampoo – great for not only absorbing grease and freshening up hair when shower access is limited, it also creates volume for that festival-fabulous look!
Blister pads: With the majority of festivals, bands are spread out over the site, you will spend a great deal of the day walking around – so your feet will be at risk of blisters no matter how comfortable your shoes are. Remember to pack foot treatment for blisters or rough skin that may occur with all that dancing over the weekend.
