Who doesn’t love a good pair of ballet flats? They’re a wardrobe staple with the ultimate dressy-meets-casual (and comfortable) appeal. But we currently have our eye on a different shoe style that has all the polish, sophistication, and comfort of the ballet flat but with a modern spin: the mule.

The quirky yet professional mule—a slide-on shoe, typically close-toe—is stealing our hearts with its cool-girl, street-style vibe. With all the versatility of the ballet flat, the slide-on mule can be worn with dresses, skirts, pants, and jeans. We think it’s time for a switch-up!

Ready to give your ballet flats a break? Take a look below at how some of our favorite style bloggers are wearing their mules.
