Deskbound Buys: The New School Mule
Yes, you read that right — the mule. The slip-on style has been hovering the outskirts of our trend radar for a while now — dipping in and out in various guises. Initially, it was the high on the foot, peeptoed Balenciaga "Glove" that signalled a change of silhouette was on the cards — all party at the front and bare-heeled at the rear. Back then it came with a back-strap, but the purest iterations now come in slip-on form with a solid single- or multiple-strap that covers most of the front-foot, with the back left fancy free. Shrug off clog connotations (shudder) by choosing refined silhouettes with single soles and stiletto heels. Ready for the new guard? It's here, and ready to shop right now.
