Yes they certainly are, and I feel a little uneasy about it. I first wore this trend back in the late 90’s. I had a Mock Croc Pair, they were from Miss Selfridge and I loved them!. I have tried to resist this trend as you well know if you are reader of this Blog, that for me Fast Fashion is for those who have no opinion and when everyone is rushing out to buy the next trend I am slowly making my way too it as and when I see fit. However, this style of shoe has so many practical benefits that I can only ignore it for so long but for it needs to be part of my shoe family.
This particular pair were in the sale and I love the little quirky detail where it still has the back on so as to keep you guessing is it a shoe or is it a mule?? I picked these up in the Summer Sale from Miss Selfridge. I find this brand a little hit and miss. I feel overall that its lost its way a bit. I fear gone are the glory days (I used to be a Brand Manager to Miss Selfridge in the 00’s) when Miss S Dominated the young lady fashion of the day. Never the less when they do get it, they get it really right. These Mules are a testimony to that, they are a gorgeous rustic colour with a nice suede finish. The heel is slightly higher than I would normally go for, but I will let it go, as the price was far too good to pass up.
I have been wearing these with my Navy culottes and as here with my camel pair. I also love how the colour contrasts so beautifully with a dark blue denim….Lovely!! Such a great shoe that can be casual down or dressed up to the nines!. Have you tried this season Mules yet? Would you try them? Let me know in the comments below.
