11 Shoes To Wear To A Music Festival In The Rain

If you're a regular at music festivals, there are a few things you'll know to expect, some of which include: Insane queues for the signing tent, the most disgusting toilets you've ever encountered, and tons of mud if it rains. Shoes to wear to a music festival in the rain will become a necessity you're sure to rely on. Because nobody wants to ruin their fave sneakers or get gloopy mud all over their tootsies, while wearing open-toe sandals in the rain.

Appropriate footwear for festivals is even more important if the event you're attending is a few days long. Depending on which festival you go to, showers may be in high demand, expensive, or even non-existent, so you don't want to get caked in mud on your first day and be stuck feeling dirty for the duration of the fest. There's only so much baby wipes can do. Even if showers are easily accessible to you, there's no fun in rushing back to the showers every time you get muddy feet — which will happen a lot if you're wearing sandals — and missing all your favorite bands.

No matter if you're rocking out for an afternoon in the park or spending a long weekend in a muddy field, here are some rad shoes to wear to a music festival when the weather's not looking good.
