Sanuks...trust me, I've tried everything else, and a good pair of "sidewalk surfers" is absolutely the way to go. You dont want the flops, but the canvas "shoe" style. They're light, uber comfy, well vented (so you dont get swamp foot), dry out quick if they get wet, wont give you blisters, but also wont randomly fall off your foot either. And best of all, you dont have to be seen wearing Crocs in public!

I loved my new pair of Crocs at langerado but they do make you look like a doofus. Who gives a shit what other people think though. As long as your feet are comfy that's all that really matters in life.
Everyone is going to have their shoe of choice and their own personal argument as to why, but as far as durability, simplicity, and comfort are concerned -- I can't recommend anything other than Crocs.
What kind of place sells those? just any shoestore?
Lots of shoe stores carry them I think, as do surf/skate stores (where I got mine) and outdoor stores. Having worn crocs before, I can say w/o question Sanuks are even more comfortable and wont give you the occasional blister or raw spot that Crocs can.

i wore some cheap flip flops my first year, and they weren't BAD, i guess, but i wasn't always comfortable either, and they were useless to me after the weekend. but like others have said, roo is the last place you have to worry about people judging you by your shoe choice. unless you're in stilletos. then we'll have to point and laugh.

I went barefoot quite a bit once I got to Centeroo last year. It might not have been the best decision I made all weekend, but it probably wasn't the worst. I wear Chacos all the time so I wear Chacos when I go to Bonnaroo and other festivals. The most important thing, which I believe several other people have mentioned, is to wear whatever shoes you are taking before you get to Bonnaroo. Can you walk a couple miles in the shoes comfortable? Stand in the shoes all day? Make sure you're comfortable and take an extra pair in case of ferocious tent stakes, rain, or other problems.
I can't see myself wearing anything but flip flops. Thats all i wear summer spring and fall. I walk alot in them and can't see them hurting my feet. Hmmmmm..... maybe i should bring something else incase. But i dont see myself doing the crocs thing. maybe sneakers or tevas?
