There is something incredibly decadent about the mule. The shape itself is a little bit different from the norm, its open back coupled with high heel somehow beguiling glamorous. The mule is, to our minds, retro sex kitten personified; a throwback to a golden age with a whole lot of modern sass chucked in for good measure.
Doing the mule and doing it well is something Jenni Kayne has perfected. The LA-based designer is hands down, one of the champions of the shoe, with three different designs adding the ‘high heel’ element to what is otherwise an entirely flat collection (literally).
This sea foam green mule, with a 4.5′ heel, is perfect for summer or adding a hit of happy sunny seashore memories in cold, dark winter. Priced at $127 in the sale from JenniKayne.com
