It has taken me a while but I'm glad to say that I jumped onto the mule bandwagon and I am currently crushing on everything mules. The mule is a style of shoe that is backless. Why do I enjoy mules so much? They are so dang easy to put on, which is a nice change from the struggle of putting and lacing up my winter boots. I also love the fact that they come in all different styles, colors, and price points.
