The Most Popular Shoe Trend at Coachella, Hands Down

Per usual, weekend one at Coachella was filled with star power, as It girls like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Slick Woods, Rihanna, Emily Ratajkowski, and pretty much every Victoria's Secret Angel descended upon the desert. And the shoe trend that we noticed a large majority of them wore to the weekend's parties and concerts were of the combat boot variety. Combat boots have been trending since the fall, so we weren't surprised to see that they were the shoe style of choice to pair with denim shorts, dresses, and cargo pants. While it certainly added a cool touch to their looks, we have to admit that it isn't exactly summer-friendly, but it was practical for trekking around in the dusty desert. And to update the trend for spring and summer, many of the celebrity festivalgoers chose white combat boots, combining two popular trends in one.
