#Muleboyz is the wave that keeps getting stronger. Highsnobiety alumni Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are mostly responsible for keeping the mule at the fore of our minds as we are one of nearly 30k people who follow their Instagram page @muleboyz for the latest developments in heel-less footwear.

The mule is the ideal hybrid footwear option for those looking to flaunt less foot, while still getting that breathability that the upcoming Spring season will require. However, going backless also gives more opportunity for you to add socks into the equation to create more depth in your fit. The Elder Statesman's Holiday 2020 collection starring A$AP Nast and Ganna Bogden gave a masterclass in this for reference.

To make it easier to find a mule that’s fit for you, we’ve rounded up the hottest no heelers available to shop right now. From sneaker hybrids by Acne Studios, to winter-fied mules from Prada.

Hop on the mule hype and shop our backless footwear highlights below.
