It seems that this summer the Clogs and mules will return to mules feet.
This year they are called Clogs or mules, someone simply calls them sandals but we all recognize them as “clogs”, they will return according to the new styles with wedge or ankle strap or in the classic version (and in some ways the best) with ankles free but one thing is certain, they will maintain the characteristics of all time … studs and wooden sole
Trendy mules: wooden-heeled footwear is trendy
The catwalks are reproducing them. Chanel, Prada and Marc Jacobs consider them a must-have of the summer.
Years later, a summer fashion inherited from the era of the children of flowers returns, in which the wooden and leather mules were a distinctive feature of the youth of the time. The simple and easy-to-make shoe has spread throughout the world over time. Used by history to date, it has been worn by every social category. Mules are born in cultures such as Dutch and Japanese; adopted by farmers, mountain dwellers and by population groups for whom leather shoes were too expensive, over time they have become a favorite accessory for everyone, given their comfort.
Traditionally manufactured with a single piece of soft poplar, maple, willow, elm, resistant and elastic, excellent for being carved, they can have a sole entirely in wood and an upper in leather or fabric.
Summer has classified them as holiday footwear, although currently, worked with special leathers, with a natural look or enriched with studs and floral details, the mules are back in a new glamorous version. Colored, with bright tones, flowers in addition and suede band studded with rhinestones, the foot reigns as a comfortable shoe to combine a little with everything, to have a gritty and current look.
