The History of the Mule.
High-heeled mules were a popular indoor shoe style of the 18th century, influenced by the pattern, a backless overshoe of the 16th century. By the early twentieth century, mules were often associated with prostitutes.
In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the shoe and helped break its poor reputation.
Mules experienced some popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s, and were seen in the 1970s and early 1980s almost exclusively in the form of open-back Scandinavian clogs, but then re-emerged in the late 1990s, especially in its open-toed form (the "slide"), and began to dominate the shoe market for women.
Now days there's not one designer who doesn't feature the mule at least once on the runway. If theres a shoe we demand for your closest this season, it's the Mule.
