                I am going to be a hundred and ten percent honest; I have mixed feels about the mule sandal. I bought these a couple weeks ago from Aldo. I had to purchase a pair a whole size larger than my normal shoe size because according to the employees at the store, they run small. “Small” would be an understatement. I couldn’t even squeeze my toes into the front of a size eight. I have super wide feet to begin with, so the slim style of the shoe was already not working in my favor. I ended up with two size nine mules that my feet didn’t pour out of and I left the store satisfied.

                For the most part, I really like the style of the shoe. I was surprised at how easy they were to keep on my feet when walking around.  I’ve worn these three or four times since I got them, and not once have they fallen off. They’re also really comfortable, once you break them in (like most shoes)!  The only thing I would change is the width of the shoe. I definitely would not wear these around the streets of New York City; I’d be terrified of tripping, having the shoe fly off, and my bare foot going into a piece of chewed gum.

In my opinion, slip-on mules kind of say “Hey look at me, I’m not afraid to wear shoes that expose me to all of the germs on the street.” “Look at my stylish shoes that could possibly give me a foot infection if I accidently stepped in a puddle in the middle of the street.” It’s sort of like recognizing the fact that you’re wearing shoes where 80% of your foot is exposed to the world.  My advice to any mule- wearing girls is to just rock it and embrace the openness of the shoe.

What’s your opinion on this new version of the mule?
