Confession. I have never really been drawn to mules/clogs and I never really knew what the difference was between them. Nowadays clogs and mules are fairly interchangeable terms but after a little research there are some differences.
Mules originated in France and are a backless shoe with a closed toe. Clogs are thought to have originated in the Netherlands and have a solid wood base and closed toe. Today mules are more common to see with an open-toe instead on closed. Since my shoes has an entirely wood base they are considered clogs 🙂 Learn something new every day!
Ever since this past fall I’ve grown more fond of mules and clogs. I’m thinking of slowly adding a couple more pairs to my wardrobe. Funny how our taste and style can change and grow as we evolve. I’m also really in love with flares and how they make my legs look but you kind of need a heel to pull them off. Since clogs and mules tend to have a block heel, I find them way more comfortable than a skinny or stiletto – no thank you.
Here are some more mules and clogs that I’ve had my eye on.
