What Are Mule Shoes?

Mule shoes, also known as slipper shoes, are backless shoes that are comfortable yet stylish. They have been a popular shoe style since the 1950s and have made a huge comeback in recent years.
Mules get their name from their resemblance to the slippers that medieval monks wore. Unlike loafers, mules have an open back, allowing for easy slip-on and slip-off. They provide the comfort and convenience of a slipper but the durability and style of a shoe.

There are women mule shoes in a variety of styles - everything from casual canvas mules to dressy suede mules to rhinestone-embellished mules for a night out. The most popular and versatile styles are:

Flat mules: Simple, low-heeled mules that are perfect for casual everyday wear. They come in materials like canvas, suede or leather.

Block-heeled mules: Mules with a chunky, block heel (usually 1 to 3 inches high). Block heels provide more support and comfort than a stiletto heel. These mules can be dressed up or down depending on the material and embellishments.

Backless loafers: Mules that resemble loafers in their low, flat profile and leather material. Backless loafers provide an easygoing yet polished look.

These loafers go with nearly everything in your wardrobe from jeans to skirts to dresses. Their simple slip-on design and range of heel heights make them ideal for completing any outfit. Comfortable and fashionable - shoes are the perfect pairing of style and ease.

How to Style Mule Shoes

Mule shoes are versatile and easy to wear, but styling them well can take your look to the next level. Here are some tips to get you started:

When wearing These shoes, opt for cropped or cuffed pants that hit at the ankle. This shows off the shoe and prevents extra fabric from bunching up under your heel.
Denim, linen and cotton pants are all great options. You can also try a midi or maxi skirt for a breezy summer look.
For tops, choose something fitted that you can tuck in, like a button-down shirt, t-shirt or camisole. An oversized or loose top won’t look as polished and may make your outfit feel imbalanced. If you want to leave your top untucked, make sure it hits at the hip so it still pairs well with the mules.

Accessorize to complete your outfit. Add a statement necklace or earrings, a patterned scarf, stylish sunglasses or a chic bag. Simple jewelry and a structured handbag are perfect for a minimalist look. A belt is also a great way to cinch in an oversized top and create shape.

Mules work for any season, so have fun with different textures and colors. In spring and summer, try woven mules, floral prints or bright colors like red, yellow or cobalt blue. For fall, rich shades like forest green, burgundy or camel are stylish options. Simple black or white mules are ideal for a classic look any time of year.
