While some of us adore the nostalgia and petite nature of Cottagecore, some want something slightly darker and dirtier; that’s where Goblincore comes in! Based on the idea of celebrating all nature – especially those typically regarded as dirty or ugly – and all animals, this aesthetic is inspired by the “ugliness” of the mythical Goblin from European folklore.
A significant part of the Goblincore community is an intense desire to explore all aspects of nature in the search for small (often shiny) objects they can collect and hoard. So we have compiled a list of 5 Goblincore-inspired shoes you will need if you want to become a part of this culture!
