5 Dr. Martens Sandals That Are Perfect for Music Festivals

Woodstock 50, the festival that would mark the 50th anniversary of the famed 1969 event may have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t head to a string of other music events around the United States and abroad.

Consider the Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Poland, in July that includes a range of music genres from rock to rap. For classical music fans, there’s the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, while Lollapalooza rocks Chicago in August.

So if you’re thinking about heading to one of these this summer, don’t forget to pack a pair of sandals from Dr. Martens, a festival favorite, that will comfortably take you through your day and night.

The brand has become a footwear must-have on the festival circuit, due in part to its roots as an authentic punk brand of the ’60s. While the label had its share of ups and downs over the decades, it’s become a favorite of a new generation of  style setters that include Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Brooklyn Beckham.

While the brand’s signature 1460 unisex lace-up boot put the brand on the fashion map, a wide range of Dr. Martens sandals has been added to the mix, all featuring the brand’s proprietary air-cushioned sole for underfoot comfort.

Since festivals often cover lots of ground, keeping feet comfortable is essential in order to catch every act. Don’t be surprised if you happen to see Dr. Martens on boomers and millennials alike since the brand easily crosses generations as a fashion and comfort statement.

Here, FN has curated some of the leading sandal styles to help you navigate the season’s festival schedule.
