When it comes to summer footwear, sneakers, sandals, and heels are at the top of the list. But there’s one key summer shoe missing: the slip-on mule. Whether open-toed or closed-toed, this shoe is essential because of its versatility. You can wear them with pants, dresses, and skirts, or as slippers around the house. Keep a pair by your door so you always have something chic to throw on if you need to run a last-minute errand. No wonder they’re the hottest shoe this season. If you don’t have a pair of slip-on shoes you love, now is the time to treat yourself. Click through the slideshow ahead to see our favorite shoes to slip into any day of the week.
