We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, ‘90s trends (particularly the late ‘90s fashion trends) are in style right now. We’ve got the claw clips, bike shorts, and fanny packs, but there’s just one thing missing to complete the look. Luckily, the latest comeback is the sneaker mule. And we actually don’t hate them. As a side note, maybe don’t wear all the trends together at once. It might be overkill.
The overall style of the somewhat clunky shoe has improved since the ‘90s. You just have to know where to look. We’ve got you covered.
Are Sneaker Mules The Newest Summer Shoe Trend?
Okay, so of course, a Hollywood A-lister has been spotted wearing the trend. Sophie Turner of Game of Thrones fame sported the look walking in Beverly Hills. Are these shoes ugly? Irrefutably yes. But are they comfortable? Also, yes. And this is what makes them wearable.
I am not a “shoe person” like so many of my friends and family. I’ve never really cared about my shoes, except when they were uncomfortable or causing pain. So, to me, the “ugly shoe” trend doesn’t even really register. Yes, I can look at a pair of Crocs and realize that they are not the most attractive thing ever. But, in the summertime, I tend to stick with my trusty Keds or my comfy sporty Birks.
If you’re like me and comfort is of the utmost importance, it may be time to add a pair of sneaker mules to the shoe rotation. Because the buzz is that they are the perfect slide-on shoes for summer.
