Last year, the unexpected shoe that stormed the catwalks and blogrolls was the mule. We loved it. We bought, we walked, we wore ours with everything. And we’re just not ready to let go. But since we’ve basically worn the soles into the ground, we’re updating our new favorite silhouette with a bold platform. In a throwback to the ’70s, designers are offering updates to the mule by taking it sky high. Worn with flares and midis, you’ll be channeling Slim Aarons photos. Want to toughen up the sweet shoe? We’re looking at distressed denim and muscle tees. Since we paired our old pairs with just about our entire closets, we’re sure that these babies will fit in just fine.
