When mules started gaining traction last year as the ultimate ‘It Girl’ footwear, we only had this to say – “It’s about time”.
Regardless of whether the ballyhoo was by virtue of Gucci’s fur-lined loafer slides or even Miu Miu’s quaint crystal embellished shearling number, we rejoiced simply in the thought of being able to pull off backless slipper-inspired styles to work while still having them seen as “chic” or even “in vogue”.
Mules hit the sweet spot between formal and leisure wear. It’s no wonder why it still remains relevant to this day as every lazy girl’s go-to choice of shoe.
