This weekend, Glastonbury is unofficially kicking off the festival season in its usual style with some of the best names in music hitting up Worthy Farm for one of the biggest parties in the world.
If that’s not enough to give you that festival feeling, then we’ve got something that definitely will: some of the hottest sneaks, reimagined as wellies (weird idea, we know, but just run with it).
Struggling to imagine how that’s at all possible? Take a look at our innovative illustrations below:
1. adidas Originals NMD_OG
Now, we know that if you managed to cop this silhouette on one of its few limited releases then you’re probably not going to want to give them an outing in a muddy field – which is why we’re presenting the rubberized, all-purpose version of the NMD_OG
Complete with coloured EVO-rubber (was foam) blocks, and adidas branding on the back, you’ll be the most popular guy in the tent with these kicks. We’ve even gone to the trouble of putting the heel tab around the rim for ease of wear – who wouldn’t want these?
Best place to wear: Wireless
2. Vans Old Skool
One of the most popular kicks of this year by far, make sure your beloved Old Skools stay intact with the waterproof version of this skater classic.
Complete with white stitching, and Old Skool branding, these instantly recognizable sneaker/wellies are best worn with a festival beverage of your choice in hand.
Best place to wear: Glastonbury
3. adidas Originals Superstars
The three-striped classic, given a brand-new look. An all-white wellie, with a Superstar bottom, this sleek(ish) design comes complete with black adidas branding and the famous shell toe.
Available in the ever-popular monochrome colourway,
your rotation will remain the best around with the addition of this water and mud-proofed design.
Best place to wear: Parklife
4. Air Force 1 High Top
Calling all classics lovers – have we got something for you. One of Nike’s most instantly recognisable silhouettes
could become your festival favourite with our reimagined design.
Pushing the high top up even higher, but keeping the rest of the sneak pretty much the same, this innovative piece of footwear comes complete with an ankle strap for added style.
Best place to wear: Lovebox
5. Air Max 97 'Silver Bullet'
It’s subject to opinion, but in our ever-so humble one, we’ve saved the best ‘til last. That’s right, the Air Max 97
Didn’t manage to cop on the first release? Well we’ve got you (and your feet) covered with this beautifully metallic take on this retro rerelease.
Taking all of the best elements from the original sneak, and transferring them to a futuristic looking wellie, you could take the fields by storm with this sleek silhouette.
Best place to wear: Coachella
