The mule has had a deep, rich history stretching as far back as ancient Rome and although it has evolved in style and purpose, its latest iteration is one we’re pedestalling as the silhouette of the summer. Thanks to a distinctive square toe shape, the sleek Mantra slip-on is awarded a fresh update for the new season. Available in new pastel colours that are just begging to be featured on the ‘Gram, the square-toe Mantra heel introduces an edge – not just a literal one – to a staple shoe that walks the line between polish and effortless. Its heel may be high, but the Mantra has already won the fashion crowd over in part because of its ease of wear and we’re confident once you slip them on, you’ll wonder how your wardrobe ever truly worked without them.

The mule’s appeal comes down to its simple styling opportunities. We recommend considering the Mantra as a modern addition to the jeans-and-a-statement-top look, but it will also work a charm with your summer wardrobe.
