Ideally, a dream life in the fields needs no shoes. In our languid fantasies, we are walking barefoot in a green field, soaking in all the vital energy that the earth has to offer. In real life, even if you live in a romantic cottage, you may need to cover your feet to walk to a beautiful park, escape to your favorite corner in the public library, or visit an enchanting garden for a perfect picnic. So, I rounded up really good stores where you can find cottagecore shoes for every occasion and season, for all the fairies and witches.
So, in this post, you’ll find shoes that resemble the cottagecore aesthetic and/or slow fashion lifestyle. True treasures handmade by experienced artisans from Europe and South America; light knit sustainable flats with delicate details; even simple mocassin patterns so you can DIY, or that get you as close as being barefoot as possible. And because you can go cottagecore year-round, we found rustic brogues, romantic ankle boots, many retro and vintage-inspired oxfords laced up with ribbons. Also, there are idyllic images with a soothing cottagecore aesthetic to help you get in the mood!
We hope you get enchanted by our selection. But mostly, I wholeheartedly desire it helps you get in the cottage mood you dream of!
