If you’re craving a comfortable shoe that’s still appropriate for the office, mules are a great option. Leather styles are especially sleek, and when done with a low or chunky heel silhouette, are much more wearable than most pumps. Even more reasons to love them? Due to their open back construction, they’re super easy to slip on and allow feet to breathe better, making them a perfect pick for warmer weather. To help you find the perfect pair, we rounded up some of our favorite leather mules on the market. They’re all made with high-quality materials and are versatile enough to match a range of outfits.
