The pandemic left a lasting influence in every facet of our lives, and in the realm of footwear, COVID brought on a desire for comfort and easy-to-wear options. The mule has reared its head as the go-to style of the times as a versatile option for everything from lounging around the house to full on errand runs. Since 2020, the style has only been on the rise within the menswear world and the trend does not seem to be going anywhere. However, this is with good reason.
Mules can span the entire breadth of the formality scale with some looking like hotel slippers and others like ultra-luxurious loafers, ensuring that you can feel a cool breeze tickling your heels in any situation, anywhere. The last few years have resulted in no shortage of mule-adjacent shoes too, which—while not strictly backless—occupy the same cozy space that mules do. With that being said, here are 25 of our favorite mens mules available now at every price point.
