The Adelaide Fringe Festival is back for its 2023 edition! It’s that time of the year when Adelaide comes alive for a month with great food, drinks and entertainment. If you look forward to the Fringe as much as we do (and we think you do) then you’re probably in the throws of trying to figure out the perfect outfit. As we all know, no outfit is complete without the right pair of shoes. Let us help you put the perfect finishing touch on your Fringe 2023 outfits with these footwear recommendations.
Late Night at The Garden
The sun has set, the fairy lights are twinkling and thank the universe it’s Friday night. You’ve made it through another week of emails, office small talk and the gruelling task of laughing at your coworkers’ un-funny jokes. Congratulations! Now the only thing you need to be worrying about is finding a spot to enjoy your fourth glass of wine and the long night ahead at The Garden of Unearthly Delights.
With the deliciously cool summer we’ve been enjoying, you’ll want something that looks stylish but also keeps you warm when the sun goes down and the temperatures drop. Whether it’s a classic ankle boot (Castel and Millie), an edgier chunky boot (Feat) or a heeled boot that emulates the playful vibe of the Fringe (Flossies).
Catching a Cabaret
Nothing beats the flurry of crazy costumes, loud music and tipsy laughter that greets you when you step into the mesmerizing world of a cabaret show. Walking into the dimly lit tent, it’s like stepping into an extravagant bubble where space and time are suspended for an hour. And as your trusted shoe experts, we refuse to let you attend a glitzy cabaret show in anything less glamorous than the stars of the show. Take your pick from colourful heels and boots. After all, more is always more in showbiz…
Picture this - long summer nights, delicious food, friends, the flutter of people, peals of laughter ringing across The Garden, the sickeningly sweet smell of fairy floss heavy in the evening air, and the whole family enjoying what will one day become a nostalgic core memory that will last a lifetime.
Romantic ideals of the perfect family night aside though - we’re thinking comfort is key here (especially if you’re chasing children around). But we would never suggest you compromise on style either. So, we’re offering up flats that feel like a party for your feet. How fitting for the Fringe.
So there you have it. Whether you’re enjoying a cabaret show, a long night at The Garden of Unearthly Delights or a night out with the family, the Adelaide Fringe is a highlight of the Adelaide event calendar best enjoyed in fun footwear.
