I love a good mule. Whether it’s a Moscow mule in a copper cup or a peep-toe in a plush velvet, the open-back shoe is my  go-to style time and time again. I took the liberty to comb through the best of sale on Matches, Net-a-Porter, My Theresa and more to highlight the best mules in color, cut and crystal-embellishment. The only caveat? Figuring out where to break in the fancy footwork.

Which pair is your favorite?
