Every time I see a mule, I can’t help but think of all the women that wore the style during my childhood. From cooperate weekdays to weekend food shopping runs, they wore them faithfully. I dabbled into the look myself, asking for a jelly-shoe version. And later, I upgraded to a black flat-form with a wide elastic strap from Payless. Do you remember them back then?
Last summer, I wore the soles off of a metallic mule/flat-form during the summer. And this spring and summer, I’m excited to wear a more dainty version of the style. These shoes look good with practically any look, making it the go-to for the season. They’re also incredibly comfortable, so you don’t have to compromise on that front, either.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the choices in shoe designers that have taken on this particular style this season, I think it’s always good to look at the details. What’s your focus? Is it price? Style? Comfort? Color? For instance, Marais has vegan options, which may be a fantastic choice for some.
Here are a few that I love…
