Mules are one of the season's biggest trends, but they're not without pitfalls — sure, they're easy to slide on, but that also means they're easy to slide off... which unfortunately tends to happen at inopportune moments. So, how about some mules that will actually stay on your feet? Honestly, that sounds like a dream come true, doesn't it?
After all, between the treacherously slippery loafer-style mules and the awkward bottom-heavy block heel mules, there's a lot of room for error — and, as a result, they can be downright annoying to walk in (especially if you happen to be running late). Luckily, though, it turns out that there are lots of ways to stay in on the trend while also ensuring that your footwear stays more secure: Look for tighter-fitting vamps, multiple straps for extra support, and maybe even a slingback or ankle wrap. With some careful shopping, you'll be able to wear your adorable mules without ever having to worry about accidentally kicking your shoes off in someone's face — because, let's be real, it's something that we've all worried about.
