Vans Launched New Backless Mules, and My Feet Are Breathing Sweet Sighs of Relief
Vans launched a new "Mule Family" pack, available to shop as of May 15 on the website. While there are some unique colorways sprouting up on Instagram, they could be dedicated to specific regions, so we're bringing you the styles available in the US right here. While it's not the much-loved sneaker brand's first foray into mules — the classic Old Skool has been reimagined as a mule before — a lot of these new designs feature fresh details like full-grain leather uppers and UltraCush footbeds for comfort. Not to mention the fact that your feet will also be glad to have a little fresh air while you walk around this summer.
Whether you're into the classic black-and-white checkerboard or the true white with a patent finish, you'll definitely want to keep these babies in rotation. Goodness knows they'll be getting lots of wear. I personally can't wait to style them with my cutoff bermuda shorts and white ribbed tanks, so I couldn't be happier that they come in neutral shades that will pretty much go with everything. Scroll through to see the five options, which range in price from $60 to $62, and scoop up your favorite pair ahead of the season.
