It may be due to my right ankle being forever swollen because of the "I shattered all my bones" hardware, but I'm over ankle straps. My cankle needs room and my request has been answered in a update to an old classic - the mule.
I know we are all familiar with the elastic slip on platforms by Steve Madden from 2000 and this is not a battle cry to pull those out from the attic or basement. The mules of 2014 are sleek, chic, and above all else, flattering.
Instead of looking like a clog, the mule is taking a cue from booties this time around - it's a wider piece of fabric atop your foot, a higher heel, and no platform! See how these street style stars wore this trend and shop some for yourself.
