Festival season is well underway in New Orleans! Then again, when isn’t it, really? As a recent enamored transplant to the Crescent City, I have come to realize that New Orleanians find constant cause for celebration. If you are fortunate enough to find yourself here for a festival or two this summer, strap on one of my festival shoe picks and get ready to dance the day (and night) away!
CHELSEA CREW JULIETTE HEEL
These shoes might not look festival-appropriate, but rest assured that the Juliettes are surprisingly comfortable and dance floor-ready! Best of all, these cute and casual peep toe heels come in a variety of colors that will keep you looking good and feeling fine no matter the outfit.
JEFFREY CAMPBELL TIBURON HEEL
When I picture dancing shoes, the Jeffrey Campbell Tiburon Heel is what comes to mind. To me these scream “Jazz Cat.” The Oxford-inspired look makes this a stylish pick while the low heel makes it a functional shoe on any terrain.
FRYE CARSON BALLET FLAT
For those that lack the dedication needed to go to a festival in heels (and who can blame you for that?), the Frye Carson Ballet Flat is a perfect alternative. Frye is a master at crafting classic yet edgy footwear with comfort in mind. The Carson’s soft leather actually conforms to your foot over time for an awesome, custom made feel.
MISS L FIRE ROCK LOBSTER SANDAL
There’s no better place to don the loud and fun Rock Lobster Sandal than New Orleans! These eye-catching shoes feature a bright red lobster on the front, which is similar in looks to one of the Big Easy’s favorite crustaceans, the crawfish. Dance the day away with a cocktail in hand in these Miss L Fire shoes and you’re sure to turn heads in the best way possible!
MIZ MOOZ LAGOON SANDAL
Whether you’re heading to a festival in the city or on the beach, the Lagoon Sandal by Miz Mooz will take you there in style. Perfect for nearly any occasion, these fashionable flip-flops are a great summer buy. Smooth leather lends these basic shoes an extra luxe touch. You’ll find me rocking these babies all season long!
