Two consecutive weekends of music, fashion and revelry make Coachella one of the most celebrated music and arts festivals. With the final weekend approaching (bowing on Sunday), last-minute packers would be wise to come prepared with shoe styles that are built for different scenarios that surround the big event.
The Gold Standard
Aldo’s eye-catching Vianello gold Chelsea boots incorporate elastic gussets on the side for moving on the dance floor without worrying that your laces will get loose. Give your outfit the Midas touch with its luxe-looking pebbled leather upper, which adds texture and provides a more rustic effect compared to a solid gold style. As a bonus, they’re now 50 percent off.
Watch on FN
Not every situation a festivalgoer faces will involve dirt, grass, spills and sweat. Dinners or sightseeing in the Palm Springs metro area (nearby the concert grounds in Indio) should be done in footwear that’s casual, comfortable and cool.

The brand’s high-top Cali sneakers with embroidered palm tress and a fringed collar pay nods to the city landscape, and with its lightweight construction and full-grain leather upper, it’s versatile enough for a trendy day-to-night look that pairs well with shorts or trousers. Its enerG Comfort System insole provides arch support and it is designed with moisture-wicking properties.

The comfortable leather footbed makes it perfect for lounging or standing on your feet.
