Talk me out of mules

I want some mules (flat) but are they silly? Is it a fad I'll be bored of in 2 months? Or are they a genius work shoe that at least won't rub the backs of my heels?

You have to grip with your toes to stop them falling off your feet it's annoying and not great for feet calves and posture. Plus your feet get wet when it rains...

No. It's not 1997 so DO NOT buy mules!

Mules. Reminds me of my mum in the 70's.
Mules, trews, slacks - great words sorry no help whatsoever

I think you can either walk in mules, or you can't.

I can & like them Y have them in several heel heights - only with bare feet though, & I wouldn't wear them for work.

*I not Y -confused]

I had some black pointy ones in the 1990s and love the look, but they are a pig to keep on...

I'm going to say no for mules, very 90's but who am I to judge, do what pleases you!

PhyllisWig Sun 05-Feb-17 07:51:46

I had some lovely oxblood ones in 1997

I had a fab pair for school in 1996, I remember them being v difficult to keep on. And getting very sweaty!

Well at least call them backless loafers so that you don't sound like you are in the 90s!

I can't drive in them so not for me but some look really nice.

My feet do something that seems the heel off to the side. Hate the things. Irrelevant to your question. Sorry.

Best way to answer this question is:

Would you have worn them a year ago before they came back "in"?

Some things are best left on the pages of a magazine.

Also, they were rank the first time around.

I'm tempted to get one. I've never had one. Are they really difficult to wear (will they slip off my feet)?

Squashit Thu 21-Sep-17 09:11:57

It's a no from me as they end up flinging off randomly or you have to keep stopping and banging your foot into the floor to push them back on every couple of minutes.

Most annoying shoes ever unless they have a footbed.

Only fluffy, bejewelled slipper type mules, the sort Debbie McGee might wear allowed I'm afraid 😀
