Admittedly, it is sometimes difficult to clearly differentiate them from each other. Nevertheless, to each their own style and personality !
Clog mules are more fashionable and can be more difficult to wear if you don’t have an eye for this kind of exercise. It requires a minimum of taste to know how to modernize them and not seem to have borrowed the gardener’s shoes! Platform mules are very modern and contemporary, they are suitable for all ages and all clothing styles. As for the wedge mules, they have a vintage spirit that undoubtedly recalls the 2000s.
They are chosen according to their style, but also in relation to its morphology. For example, petite women will favor wedge mules to gain height or wedge clogs. For the curvy womenbetter avoid oversized hooves to prefer wedges or platforms. Do you get the idea?
