Slip Into Something More Comfortable this Spring
Crocs and Birkenstocks, how the relaxed loafer mule is gaining popularity as this season’s number one casual shoe option for men. Somewhere between a clog and a loafer, these slide on footwear options make a convincing case.
While the Croc is undoubtedly a polarising topic and shoe option for many, it certainly is a handy option for around the house, around the garden and to and from the beach.
If you’re not yet convinced on how practical a slip, on slip off rubber loafer is, we’ve got some options to present to you.
Since COVID, practicality and comfortability have reigned supreme when it comes to footwear because, quite frankly, where have we all been getting dressed up to go to?
2020 saw the resurgence of the Birkenstock Boston, crafted from the iconic soft bed you’ve come to know and expect from the brand, as well as a totally concealed toe. These slip-on pair of shoes are widely appreciated by ‘Californian Cool’ Hollywooders such as Leonardo DiCaprio & Paul Rudd, and with a price point of under $200, what’s not to love?
If you’re partial to the posh then you’ll be pleased to hear that fashion houses like JW Anderson, Balenciaga and none other than Gucci have all put their stamp on the style. With high-end iterations featuring hardware, logo mania and some impressive shearling insoles, comfort is certainly served within the top shelf loafer mule market.
Whether you’re spending your Sundays in the garden, perusing the farmer’s market or sipping Bloody Marys at brunch, the backless loafer mule is the perfect option to accompany you there.
