Mules, as long as there are no toes?
I have this thing about toes. Yes, I do understand they are a very necessary part of life but other than summertime lazing I am not too fussed to show off mine. There is nothing wrong with them, it’s just a peculiarity I have.
My shoes are covered in front unless we are talking sandals.
When it comes to mules and slingbacks, the toes need to be in. This shoe style can have a strange balance without the toecap and lack elegance. I know a zillion designers would disagree with me but I am just saying.
Deciding between a slingback and a mule is tricky. I love the look of a slingback – they are well proportioned, add length to the foot and very feminine – except I find them very difficult to wear. Do you? They always fall down at the heel; despite the many styles and remedies, I have tried for this problem. A mule I can walk and talk all day and have no issues. Other women are the opposite; they can’t do a mule but will walk miles in their slingbacks.
Feet are unique and from where I stand there is no rhyme or reason to why one shoe style works above another.
Why do I love a mule?
I am so ready to wear mules again. As much as I love the trainers I am really rearing to go with a finer shoe. Mules feel light and strangely enough, they make my legs feel slimmer. A psychological ploy on my part but it works.
Mules and dresses are a match made in heaven. As are 3/4 pants and jeans with a pretty blouse and all making me feel like a new season is here.
Easy to pack and light to travel with.
Mules, with or without heels, elevate most outfits up a notch or two.
What about the slingback?
Yes, if they work for you – me, I am holding back and as much as Dior has made me envious for a pair of their printed pretties I know I will wear them once and regret my decision.
Slingbacks work best if you can adjust the strap and also if the strap is not super thin. A pointed slingback looks gorgeous if you can walk and talk at the same time.
Mules v’ the slingback? For me, mules every time. xv
