Not to be confused with the animal, mules are shoes characterized by their exposed heel and this Spring 2014 season they are everywhere. Backless shoes are a trend everyone can rock, as they come in a myriad of heights. We spotted them on the catwalks of mega-brands Alexander Wang, Chloé, Stella McCartney, and Céline, but not in their conventional way; the shoe is cooler, the heel is higher and the silhouette is more modern. Gone is also the most annoying part of the mule, the pest-y clack-clack sound that we hear when the shoes slap against your feet.
