It's True—Spring Has a New Cult Shoe and It’s Practically Perfect in Every Way

If you stand in just the right spot in the Who What Wear office and listen very closely, you might just hear a buzz that sounds an awful lot like "Prada satin mules". I wouldn't suggest an ear test, nor tell you you heard it wrong, because this is a topic that's been on repeat in the office since Prada's S/S '24 runway show back in September last year.

The word "obsessed" barely describes our current infatuation with the square toe mule. With a striking cut and mini triangular heel, the satin mule offers a playful alternative to the pointed-toe kitten-heels that have been saturating the market as of late. Introduced in Prada's September collection and recently made available for purchase, we've seen that some of our favourite stylists and celebrities have been within the first to snap it up.

With a bold yet minimal design this new season shoe is showing real cult-buy potential. Tapping into growing mule trend ahead of the curve, Prada's satin shoes appeal to the enduring flat-shoe and low-heel trend whilst offering a fresh and spring-ready take.

Recently styled by singer Rochelle Humes who wore heres with split-hem leggings and a grey boxy blazer, the elevated shoe is set to ripple through fashion circles this spring. Available in classic black, warm brown, vivid orange and apple green, the elegant shoe is bound to be a frequent guest at stylish weddings this summer time.
