We have a love-hate relationship with mules. We love how endlessly chic a mule can be. Mules can add an element of sophistication in seconds, just by simply slipping into them. How great! Well, it was great until the mule begins to slide off a few seconds later. Then, there’s nothing but regret and remorse for sliding on into them.
Finding the balance between chic and comfortable feels impossible at times. It’s a tangled web that we are continuously weaving. If a shoe is chic, it’s uncomfortable. If it’s wearable, it’s never stylish. Our simple solution? This mule with a strap, of course!
The Kerrie by Naturalizer is best described as the ultimate game-changing silhouette that is making just about everyone rethink their stance on mules.
If we had to narrow it down to the biggest problem we have with mules, what would it be? The exposed-back, of course. It doesn’t matter if the mule is easy-to-wear or incorporates a slip-on silhouette. It’s actually useless if the slip-on, easy-to-wear mule doesn’t even stay on. That’s why most of Us keep an arm’s length distance with mules most times.
Well, we were keeping our distance until our eyes laid eyes on this sweet silhouette. It was never the mule that left an unsatisfactory taste in our mouths. All along, we just needed a more supportive silhouette.
That’s why the Kerry mule is our new must-have mule! Not only is it sleek and sophisticated, but it also includes a strap! That’s right, a strap on the exposed-back for added support.
The slingback strap with goring is perfect when paired with a non-slip man-made outsole. The buttery-leather smooth mule is not only incredibly chic with its snipped toe. It’s incredibly comfortable, too. When sliding into either the light bronze metal or the black leather shade, it’s the stylish shoe that has our feet locked in securely.
It’s not only a game-changing option, but it’s also the revolutionary one, too. As if this wasn’t all already ever-so-fabulous, the mule also features N5 Contour + technology. It’s the breakthrough feature that claims to add open-cell cushioning that is anatomically sculptured to meet and contour anyone’s feet. More or less? Not only will it feel like we’re walking on cloud nine when walking in the shoe. That was the specific intent the brand had when designing this shoe.
The most understated detail about this mule? It’s an easy-to-wear shoe in terms of styling. It’s the year-round option that can be endlessly styled within our wardrobes from season-to-season. We’re saying anything from two-piece sets to feminine frocks and even jeans and sweaters. You name it, it can be worn with it.
Truthfully speaking, that’s so rare. Often times when the temperatures begin to drop, we want to also drop any of those shoes which highlight an exposed-back area. The strap completely changes our minds. It provides a sense of security and sensibility that was previously missing. How funny that one little piece can give so many shoe lovers (including ourselves!) such piece of mind!
When looking for the chicest, most comfortable mule on the block, this Naturalizer Kerrie mule is it! It’s our absolute must-have that doesn’t just have our backs. It has a strap on the back, too!
