Wow, Everyone Is Wearing These Shoe Trends at Coachella

As we all know, Coachella is as much about fashion as it is about the music these days (maybe even more so, to be honest). And although the fashion crowd has shifted away from the cliché festival trends like fringe and flower crowns, there still seem to be fashion items that everyone gravitates toward during festival season. As you may recall, last year the It shoe at Coachella was white combat boots. Since weekend one of 2019 has commenced, we’ve come to the conclusion that there are not one but three It Coachella shoe trends this year. 

Celebrities and influencers like Gigi Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and Jasmine Tookes trekked around the festival grounds in decidedly comfortable, walkable styles this year. Gone are the complicated gladiator sandals of years past—high boots (as in mid-calf or higher), classic sneakers, and combat boots (but in black as opposed to 2018's white styles) were the shoe trends everyone wore with their tie-dye, tank tops, denim shorts, and baggy jeans this year. We can safely say that these accessible, versatile shoe trends are great ones to invest in this season, so we found a few similar styles you might want to add to cart.
