Glastonbury won’t be taking place this year, and the Secret Garden Party closed its tents for the last time in 2017. But not to panic, there’s still a sizzling summer line-up for all you festival goers.
If you’re ready to make shapes in a sun-drenched field alongside thousands of other revellers, this is your essential guide. Here we’ve chosen the most appropriate footwear which meets the following criteria: comfort, durability and style. After all, your sneaker game needs to be on point, just like you dance moves!
The following are now available at JD Sports and we’ve also recommended some of the best summer festivals – let the madness begin!!
An absolutely bonkers festival deserves an outlandish pair of creps. “The Most Colourful Show on Earth” takes place in early August. With everything from lakeside raves to ambient lit forests, you won’t look out of place wearing something that grabs attention – it’s encouraged! Choose the iconic Air Max 97 dressed in this shimmering colourway and you can’t go wrong.
As the name would suggest, this festival promotes an eco-friendly approach to getting your groove on. That said, it makes sense to represent with the Ultra Boost Parley – a shoe designed with no less than 11 recycled plastic bottles. These are unbelievably comfy too, ideal if you fancy a walk in the surrounding Welsh countryside of the Brecon Beacons.
Flower power, baby!! Where better to unleash this hyped Converse than London’s best showcase of grime and beats? Created by Groove Armada, this year’s line-up includes Skepta and N.E.R.D. Browse the vintage markets, hit those fairground rides and proudly wear this candy-floss pink exclusive designed by Tyler The Creator.
The immense arena of dance, trance and electro invites the serious raver to partake in three days of mayhem. If you don’t want to flake after day one, you’ll need a pair of trainers that were designed with comfort in mind. Thanks to the 270-degrees of cushioning in the heel, you’ll be able to bounce along to the beats whilst the likes of Carl Cox and Eric Prydz provides the sweet music.
For all you fitness junkies, Festival No.6 promises the perfect balance of music and health activities. Take to the Snowdonia mountain trails for an exhilarating run before attempting a spot of paddle boarding. Yoga classes also take place between the headliners and you can soothe those tired muscles with a spa treatment. For all that activity, you’ll need a technical pair of creps. Choose the new and innovative EXP-14. Conveniently, these are available with hits of vibrant neon.
Croatia’s biggest and best open-air festival is an enticing mix of beach raves and bonfire-lit after parties. Of course, this sun-soaked paradise requires something a little more tropical. This unique hybrid of Vapormax technology with an Air Max Plus upper should do the trick!
Unfortunately, this is no longer a secret, at least not with the hipsters and hedonists. A major indie festival that is far more intriguing thanks to its location in a safari park. Get yourself to the Netherlands and enjoy a marathon of guitar melting solos. Pack these Air Max 97s which are crafted with synthetic material that can easily be wiped clean.
The scorching Sardinian coasts provides a picture-postcard backdrop to this week long celebration of drum and base. Those intimate parties can get sweaty, so be sure to pack a pair of lightweight and breathable trainers. With the Clima variation of the Ultra Boost, you’ll literally be able to feel the wind between your toes!
