Wayne’s Shoe Collection: Part 3 (Mules)

Fieramosca & Co. crocodile driving mules

This is a third post in a series that showcases the formerly shoe-obsessed Wayne’s shoe collection (and Wayne knows about my love of mules). Commentary by Wayne himself: A pair of Nic's by Cyclonic slipper mules (I don't think the company exists anymore): They didn't even come with in a box, but in a canvas bag! Finally, how about a pair of men's slingbacks? And from The Wild Pair?? (Notice the logo on the insole.) Get a load of the Cuban heel...I bought them around 1993 (+/- 1 year), … [Read more...]

The Twentieth Century Sandal

Birkenstock Women's Mayari Sandal

Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, was often pictured completely naked apart from her sandals.

I was doubtful of them since I love my Aerosole mules so much, but took her word for it. So when Squeak called me last week to say the Merona Abigail Buckle … [Read more...]

Mad Over My Mules

Long time readers will know that my favorite shoes are Mules, and I'm partial to Brown Mules.   I think I may now  own more pairs of brown mules than black sandals! Yesterday, my cousin (who is pregnant with twins!) and I went to Sioux City with our main goal of going to Sam's Club (because my sister ruined my last trip).   We did manage to get some mall shopping in, and I came away with 2 new pairs of brown mules. The first pair I bought was a pair of Mudd Patchwork Clogs, which are very … [Read more...]
