The Ultimate Spring Shoe That Should Be Part Of Your Everyday Arsenal


by Niamh ODonoghue
12th Mar 2018

I did a closet clearout this weekend and noticed that my shoedrobe comes in two extremes: a collection of leather, all-weather shoes and boots that are worn 9-out-of-twelve month’s of the year, and too many pairs of “going-out” heels that get far few uses to be deemed mine. In the middle of these two extremes were a handful of flat and mid-heel sandals perfect for mosying to the shops for milk (or something way more fashionable) or a jaunt around town on the weekends. The more I inspected the wear-and-tear of some of my pairs of flat slip-on’s and mid-height mules, I realised that these are, in fact, the shoes that I actually get the most wear out of. They’re comfy, quick and easy to wear, they’re not too casual but not quite a dress shoe, they’re high without being too sexy and low enough to power through the day in, and, above all, they’re perfectly transitional for this time of year.

If you’re still on the fence about these heel-freeing and dainty choice of footwear, then scroll below. Whether it’s flat mules, low block-heel mules, heeled mules, espadrille mules’ in all fabrications and colours, they’re here to stay for spring ’18.
