While selecting a pair of footwear for a concert, it’s more than essential that these shoes are light, stable, offer extra comfort (especially if you are jumping in the pit!), but don’t compromise for your stylish outlook! In standing area you might like to wear trainers, lace ups, or Chelsea boots to ensure the freedom of movement and comfort while being on your feet for several hours. Also pay attention to the materials used in the production of your shoes. Thus, sheepskin lining used in the production of Anatomic & Co leather shoes and boots ensure that even after a long evening of enjoying music in full your feet will stay and feel fresh.

In sitting area, therefore, you might like to wear to impress and go for more elegant styles like brogues. Also think about adding color and modern design elements to your outlook – it’s not a formal occasion or an opera night after all!

Style Guide: Notting Hill Carnival

If walking around a carnival, while listening to diverse reggae, dub, hip-hop, soca and dancehall melodies, while soaking up the last of the summer sunshine does sound like your cup of tea, then you need to head down to the Notting Hill Carnival this bank holiday.

You may be wondering what to wear to London’s most attended street party? Anatomic & Co has created a style guide for carnival goers, as well as giving you a taste of what to expect.

What is the Notting Hill Carnival?

Starting out in 1964 as a way for Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their cultures and traditions in London, the Notting Hill Carnival has since transformed into the biggest street festival in Europe.

The original idea of the carnival pays respect to the parades and celebrations which were rife throughout the Caribbean during the early 19th century.

Today the carnival goes further than this, welcoming all people from all cultures and communities to enjoy the colourful sights, mixture of melodies and festive party that takes place every August bank holiday weekend.


What to Expect:

At the carnival you will find some incredible street food, with hundreds of different cuisines to choose from. The Notting Hill Carnival is also acclaimed for its unique Caribbean music, steel bands, exhilarating live performances and calypso rhythms.


What to wear at the carnival:

As you’ll be on your feet for most parts of the day, you’ll want to opt for an outfit that is equal parts fun and functional. It’s entirely up to you whether you want to embrace the vibrant colours of the celebrations or take preference to a more refined and casual outfit.

One style you can opt for is a more rugged look, pairing an earth-toned or camo jacket with a pair of well-tailored jeans. Not only will this help you stand out in a crowed of 2 million people, but also give you plenty of pockets for all your carnival accoutrements.

The Notting Hill Carnival is all about embracing culture, so adding a few accessories can help add a little diversity to your outfit.

What shoes to wear at the carnival:

Open shoes or sandals are an absolute carnival no-go, and since you’ll be walking for long periods of time, it’s best to go for a trusty pair of trainers or comfortable boots. If you’re in need of a new pair of trainers or boots that will provide you with all-day comfort, we recommend the following styles:

Classico (Available in Smooth Havana or Smooth Marinho)

Santista (Available in Full-grain Cognac or Full-grain  Chumbo)

Bilac (Available in Full-Grain Troy and other classic colours)

Pedras Vintage Rust

Colorado Mustang Tobacco (Available in many other colours)

Offering complete comfort and exuding elegance and style, our versatile range of trainers and boots never fall out of favor and they can complement a range of outfits.
