One of the stand-out features of mules is that this is a backless shoe. If you are dealing with Achilles tendonitis or another type of pain in the back of your heel, the mules will not make it worse. This is because no back will rub or irritate the tendon while you are walking. They are also a smart option for people who have arthritis
If you are looking for shoes that are comfortable, stylish, and good for your feet, try out mules, as you will find they are not only feet-friendly but also extremely stylish.
Mules are high-vamped slip-on shoes with an open back that exposes the heel. Mules do not have ankle straps so there is nothing securing your foot to the shoe other than the grip of your feet. Mules were one of the footwear trends back in the ‘90s, along with platform sneakers, loafers with chunky treads, and combat boots.
Mules are fringe trending and come in an assortment of styles, as seen below. Most are heeled, but some are flat. Both round and pointy toes are represented. Some styles peep at the toe. Heel shapes can be stiletto, chunky or wedged. Most mules in the ‘90s were black, and that also seems to be the dominant colour this time round.
The advantage of the mule is the ease with which it can be slipped on. Fast, no-fuss and breezy. The downside is that it can slip off as you stride, unless it’s a snug fit and your feet can comfortably grip the shoe. They are particularly suited to high volume feet because filling out the shoe is a prerequisite for keeping the style securely on your feet. If they’re peep toed, your toes should stay on the soles of the shoe, and not venture beyond the edge of the toe box.
