Festival season is almost upon us and as expected, our thoughts are all about what footwear to take to an outdoor festival. With British festivals, it can go both ways due to the unpredictable weather we are accustomed to; will we be trudging through the mud to see our favourite band or frolicking in the sunshine beside the stage? We’re praying for dry weather this festival season so we can bring out our favourite flat sandals from Ravel! We’ve put together a festival footwear guide to cover all bases, just remember to pack your wellies in case of inclement weather!
These boots are made for walking
A comfortable pair of boots are the perfect footwear option for festivals; not only do they look fashionable, but they can be useful when the weather isn’t too great. Opt for an ankle boot with a low heel for a comfortable feeling all day (or night) long. Our range of flat boots here at Ravel include some classic designs, such as the Ravel Johnson ankle chelsea boots available in black and brown leather. Crafted with Micro-Fresh technology, these boots will stay odour free for longer – just what you need when you’re facing a few days sans shower! The pull up tabs on the back of each shoe makes them easy slide on. With a supple leather upper and stunning tweed detailing on the elasticated side panels, this ankle boot oozes quality in every way. For an updated take on the Chelsea boot, we have the Ravel Roseburg ankle boots in black suede with double leather strap and buckle detail. Effortlessly chic, these boots are a sound alternative. The Chelsea boot is a timeless festival footwear option that can be worn with skinny jeans and a long sleeved shirt for a gig-ready outfit.
For a feminine touch, we love the Ravel Turner ankle boots which has beautiful floral embroidery on tan coloured soft suede. With the wooden block heel and wide top, this style of women’s boots has a definite Western feel to it. Pair these suede ankle boots with a maxi skirt or dress with a denim jacket for a bohemian festival look.

A pair of knee high boots can also be a stylish alternative to wellies – providing that it isn’t too muddy of course! Knee high boots look fabulous teamed with a pair of shorts and long socks, as seen on festival queen and supermodel Kate Moss. Again, it’s a good idea to opt for a flat boot for comfort. For a classic over the knee boot option, we suggest the Ravel Floyd in black suede with a simple round toe, or go for a versatile tan leather knee high boot such as the Ravel Markham. Knee high boots are a great investment as they will last long past the festival season and will become your go-to footwear choice for autumn.
Ravel Markham Knee High Boots £125 & Ravel Floyd Over The Knee Boots £99
Believe it or not, sometimes it’s not all mud and rain at British festivals. If you’re heading to the infamous Glastonbury festival in June, take a break from the wellies and add some Ravel Moab flat sandals to your rucksack for those days when the land is dry and the sun is shining. The flat sandals in silver leather are in tune with the popular metallic trend that is everywhere this season with it’s distinctive reflective finish. Plus, the razor tooth effect sole provides extra grip for walks over unsteady terrain back to your tent! For a total fusion of current trends, we recommend the Ravel Rockwall wedge sandals which display two trends in one – metallics and animal print. Opt for classic leopard print or zebra print in pony leather for a simple, slip on sandal that will lend itself to plenty of different outfit options. Show off your summer pedicure with our collection of women’s open-toe flat sandals which are bang on-trend for the warmer season.
