The 'mule' shoe is back

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The mule is back. The backless shoe so popular in the 1990s has gotten a youthful makeover and has reemerged in a big way. But this time around it's a little different than it was before.

A recent Glamour magazine spread highlighted mega mule mania declaring the mule the "it" shoe of the season.

Front Row magazine says wearing one makes a glam yet relaxed statement.

Shoe designer Sophia Webster found mules so popular she now has an entire category for them on website.

I couldn't help but notice that women on the streets of NYC seem to be embracing the style. And men are noticing, too.

Wearing mules has never been easier. If you decide to take the plunge you've got lots of options.

Models on the Victoria Beckham runway strutted their stuff in wedge mules. But you can choose an embellished pair, a pair with a chunky heel, a pair in a notice-me color. Or remember these Candies? They helped pioneer the trend back in the 1970s and the basic wood-heeled shoe is still hot today.

The real key to feeling confident in a mule is great fit. If it's too small, your heel hangs over the back like a giant onion--not cute. Too big and your foot slips forward.

If you like the style, try before you buy.
