    I wore ugly comfortable flip flops -- They worked well, no blisters and no hot feet....slip on and off easily for dead grass dancing with bare feet. I saw someone puke all over the grass and stopped going barefeet.

    Is that the guy we gave the 10 dollars, the bottle of booze and the hooker to? That's the one JR....All right...I feel like solid gold already!!!!

    Ladies--I picked up a pair of these before I went to Germany. I wore them the entire time, walked for hours and hours in them, and my feet, legs, and back didn't ache at all. Like walking on clouds.

    I have some Sketcher GoWalks and they are awesome! I've washed mine in the clothes washer, so should work well for Coachella and beyond.

    I strongly suggest trying to go barefoot Friday while the grass is still fresh and see how you like it, very liberating.

    It is not a matter of if, but when your foot get stepped on and smashed. Don't be stupid.

    usually shoeless all weekend except on entrance route trail, dirt and restrooms - then flip flops. the liberation comes with the shower at the days end with a thorough feet washing and getting into uggs for the nightwear. never any issues with steppers - i always find plenty of space for dancing on the fringes and give lotsa room for wobblers.

    My new shoe type. Hopefully it's broken in enough by Coachella, because my last pair of ADIDAS got holes in the soles. Not good for those watery moments, though I'll bring them just in case

    Ok I just bought some.

    If anyone knows of any cute really comfortable Mary Jane style shoes, I'd appreciate it. I got some Keen's last year, but they are not quite as cute as I'd hoped, and are comfy but not for long periods of time.

    I don't see how barefooted is an option at least if you try to get closer to the stages. When I went before, there was literally no room to stand and everyone was stepping on each others feet trying to fight the waves in the crowd from everyone pushing to get closer. Being barefoot would be a pain, in so many ways ...

    I might actually pick up a pair of the dudes version of those Sketchers. They're not terribly ugly and I'm always looking for anything that will make my feet less hurty. Hey, if it worked for Jen...

    Sanuks do it for me. They're light, comfy, breath well and dry easy. Throw a new pair of low ankle socks in your bag for night time and after a day of walking around it is euphoric on your feet.

    I got some Nike Roche Run's last year right before coachella. NEVER AGAIN. My feet were hurting for days after I got home.

    I will be taking some Air Max 2013 or some of the new Lebron X shoes. Im going with straight comfort, not gonna risk it again.

    I bought some classic checkerboard vans slipons. They should be good on the feet, though I'm going to need bandages to protect my ankles. I still have scar from the last pair of slipons I owned as a teenster. If only I'd known about SOCKS back then. Still amazed I didn't encounter athletes foot until last year when I let a friend use my shower. There's a last time for everything.

    Military surplus boots, Corcoran brand. Comfortable and durable, the only two things I really give a shit about with footwear.

    from 07-10 I wore $30 target converse and got mad blisters.
    from 10-12 I wore AF-1s. super comfy and bouncy and great for dancing and no blisters, but holy hades my feet got hot.
    this year I am bringing some slip-on converse with a woven toe and charcoal insoles for daytime, and then back to the air force ones at night.

    I can understand the first day, and maybe even the entire first festival weekend, but the next three, too?
