Whether downtown chunky or uptown sleek, 1990s-influenced mules cropped up have shown a significant revamp of  for Spring 2014.

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.

Here's my top 10 favorites that I'd die to get my hands on (and my feet in?) this season.

no no no!!! i don't understand why some trends don't just stay on our trunks. Mules , except the fact that they are not at all flattering ( so most of half women can not wear them), they , also, aren't chic and stylish.
