Summer festivals are today on a par with the catwalk in their ability to influence contemporary fashion trends. In that respect, festivals have almost become fashion’s version of Tough Mudder: a near-impossible task to pull off, but one we nevertheless embrace with a child-like enthusiasm. Whether your summer adventures will be taking you to, Bestival, Isle of Wight or Reading and Leeds festival, you can be sure that the weather will throw up a sartorial conundrum for your planned attire. To ensure your festival outfits are bang on trend this summer, the AllSole style editors offer our guide to the best festival footwear to bring along to the fields and farms of the UK.

The key to your festival outfits will be preparation, so we would recommend you check the outlook up until the last minute and tailor your choice to the predicted forecast.
