I still find it hard to believe that mules are a thing again.  I spent my childhood in the nineties ordering my mother to ‘take those disgusting shoes off’ whenever she would parade around in her black, platform pair.  I couldn't get my head around them, what’s the point in having a shoe with no back?  Even the word ‘mule’ sounds slightly nasal and gross, so it is to my utter delight that these shoes by Dear Frances have completely thrown my opinion in the opposite direction.

I’m yet to be greeted with another pair of mules as cool as these, minimal and understated yet attention grabbing at the same time.  The Perspex panel detailing will ensure that they remain relevant and interesting even after the trend dies down.
