Mules are one of those shoe styles you don’t tend to see very often these days: perhaps because, as pretty as they can be, they’re not always the easiest shoes to wear. These ones really grabbed my attention when they appeared on Net-a-Porter yesterday morning, not just because of the oversized platform and exaggerated shape, but because the back view is even more dramatic than the view from the front:
Don’t you just love that sole? I’d probably want these for that reason alone, but the buttons on the heel also really appeal to me, partly because they remind me of my wedding dress, which had buttons on the back of the bodice. The overall look is somehow very decadent, and while I’d like these better with a smaller platform and more elegant shape, I think they’re pretty cute as they are, too.
One thing I don’t like? The $1,140 price tag. Click here if you want to buy them.
