Festival style can get a little redundant—you know the drill, flower crowns and maxi dresses galore. This year, we decided to pan down and zoom in for a look at the footwear of Outside Lands. Because, perhaps, there's nothing more telling about a concertgoer's personal style than how they choose to jazz up their sensible shoes.
Cool weather and hours upon hours of trudging around GGP called for sneakers and boots, but Bay Area music lovers brought plenty of cheeky glamour to the park in the form of colorful, metallic, printed, and even hand-painted kicks. Budget-friendly looks were also abundant, with many styles picked up from Zara, DSW, and Ross.
Check out 14 of our favorite pumped-up kicks from Outside Lands 2016!
