Slip back into the trend: mules

This year has witnessed a comeback of mules, which were perhaps the most popular shoes a year before. However, they show no sign of giving up their positions. As stubborn as the name suggests, these legendary shoes have come a long way since they initially were just bedroom slippers. For those, who know nothing about the hero of this tale – mules are a style of shoe that has no back or constraint around the foot`s heel. The first mules date back to the time of Ancient Rome and it wasn`t until the 16th century that they gained their popularity as boudoir shoes, which weren`t worn in public. Throughout many centuries they have changed in style and purpose dramatically. At present, they have nothing in common with indoor slippers except for backless design. Mules have conquered the world of haute couture and are worn any day and for any occasion.

At the spring/summer 2018 fashion weeks, the runways appeared to be replete with different variations of mules.
