    Default Shoes

    Okay, this is my first Coachella. Does anyone have shoe suggestions? I usually wear Vans or Converse even hiking and what not. But I doubt a hike once in a while is the same amount of walking I'll be doing at Coachella. I don't want blisters. I know this is kind of a dumb question, but I really am clueless and when I try to search on the internet for good music festival shoes, high heels seem to be a popular responce. I do not want to wear high heels or sandles. I like to get in the crowd and put myself at risk for getting romped on a little. Thanks for your help.

    You wear shoes that have no arch support in the mountains and now your asking what to wear on a flat surface?

    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I wear converse every year with no problems. I would not recommend high heels because you are walking on grass the entire day, so your heels will go into the ground. If you plan on being in the crowd I would probably suggest sticking with the converses since you don't want to be stepped on, but hey I've seen people walking around barefoot so anything is really fair game.

    I'll think this thread when witnessing romping and smelling feet.

    Yeah, I told you I was clueless. I wear flip flops hiking in the summer time. I just don't want blisters on day one and screw up day two and three.

    My hiking "boots" are my Converse.

    So, this is super easy. Looks like I'm wearing my trusty Converse. Thanks for the help.

    I've worn converse for the last 4 years. Same ones, in fact. They work fine. If my feet get hot I go barefoot. But only in the daytime. I don't want those

    INs and OUTs allow you to option sandals during the day. I suggest this, return around 4-6pm window to your car to swap out for night time stuff (it can get freezing at night at the outdoor stages)

    Fuck converse, those are awful and uncomfortable after 6 hours in them. Get some something you could wear for days.

    Wading through the mounds of plastic water bottles littered across the grass at the end of the night seems more dangerous than hiking. I know some people almost died on those, so sturdy shoes are important.

    I remember seeing girls in heels (mostly wedges so they don't sink) during the day and wondering how the hell they do it. I'm all about vans or converse during the day. Can't imagine wearing my heels. Coincidentally, many more girl were barefoot at the end of the night. Also, they're feet must have been NASTY at the end of the day. Dust, crap on the ground, etc. Definitely wear tennis.

    New balances may not look as pretty, but those have great support and the females inform me that jack purcells, although very close to converse, have WAY better arch support and are much comfier (hence the higher tag)

    If you don't own a pair of Rainbow flipflops, use those during they day, they are like walking on pillows.

    You could also throw a gel pad in your converse/vans. I do that when I bust out the dress shoes at night. Yeah I fucking dance in dress shoes at Coachella. I be gelin'.

    I rent a locker to keep my converse (and other items for the weekend) in for at night time and wear flip flops most of the day. If you get "Happy Feet inserts" you will have excellent arch support in the converse!

    Im not even kidding you I walked all around Bonnaroo with Sanuks and my feet never hurt at all, and they always do when I wear normal sneakers. Sanuks are the most comfortable things Ive ever put on my feet.

    I wore sandals. Luckily I bought three pairs though because each pair was ruined at the end of the day..

    I always wear highly breathable running shoes. Keep my feet cool and hey, sometimes I did have to do a little running.

    Stuff that Puma or Adidas (Climacool) puts out . Last year I wore these (minus the color). They were awesome and provided a little more protection from the aids needles and stomping than going barefoot or sandals
