Coachella is just around the corner, and if you're going, we'll bet that you're already thinking about what to wear. And while the weekend may be fun for you, it's certainly not so easy on your shoes. Scuffs, scratches, soaked in booze... all very real hazards while braving the bands, and certainly not something you want to expose your designer sandals to.

The key is to buy a pair of shoes that are cute but also inexpensive, and thereby designate them as your summer "I don't care what happens to them" footwear. Shop our top picks below.
