Ask Belle: Mules for Spring


Mules are back? Awesome. I loved them in the 90s and I’m glad to see them again.  Can you suggest a few pairs in the $75-$150 range?  I am so excited to see your picks.

Age Ain’t Nothin’ But a Number

Yes, mule high heels are back in style.  I wish the heels weren’t as high as they are–I saw a cute pair with 6″ (!!!) heels, and I was so sad.  But here are a few pairs in your price range.

Now, I just need to practice walking in mules.  Need a trick to make walking in them simpler?  Grip tape on the soles gives you a little more traction, while a moleskin insole gives you a snug fit.


Jessica Simpson Chandra Mule ($89)

Like this style?  I also found it at Asos in black and at Charlotte Russe in tan.


Guess Caracea Mule ($110)


Topshop Rapture Skinny Mules ($75)


Aldo Ama Nude Mules ($120)

I must admit these are my favorite.


INC Concepts Rufuss Sandals ($79)

Need a flat mule? I can’t decide if these look too much like bedroom slippers or not, but I still kind of love them.


Aldo Luma Leopard Mules ($65)

    Ewww! No! No! No! No! No! Just the thought of the slapping against the foot sound they make makes my stomach turn.

    As a tall girl, I love the concept of flat mules. Sadly, they make that terrible flip-flop “thwap” sound, which isn’t great in the marble halls of Congress. If anyone finds a pair under 3 inches, send them my way!

      I was afraid of that. Darn.

    Love the way they look, but that flip flop sound drives me crazy and doesn’t come across as very professional.

      Agreed. No different than a flip flop. Damn.

    At first I thought this post was going to be a joke (early April Fools perhaps?) but alas…. NO. Just no.
