Is This The Ultimate Cool Girl Shoe?

I have a theory: mules may be the coolest cool girl shoe in existence. Badass boots, classic pumps and the occasional stiletto are great, but MULES. Oh, you secretly potent and powerful half-shoe, you. Allow me to explain.

You see, the coolest It girls across time and space are often described as being “effortless”. Ease is a large part of their chic. Mules – what with their very nature of just requiring you to slip your feet in and voila – are the easiest shoes in existence that aren’t open-toe slides or thongs. (I have a weird but totally rational thing against thongs, but that’s another story for another time.) Mules are effortless, It girls are effortless. Ergo the mule is the It girl go-to. It’s logic.

Plus, you can’t ever disguise open-toe slides as anything more than casual – come on, your toes are sticking out – but MULES? Anyone who owns a well-made pair, heeled or flat, and any street style picture that features it will say otherwise. Yoyo wears her Gucci shearling loafer mules all the time. I just got mine and I feel like all my shoe problems are now non-existent. With the risk of sounding like a home shopping ad – you need to try it to believe it. From furry to flat to sparkly to statement, shop our favourite mules of the season below.
