The Harper Mule

The Harper Mule is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes, but had to size up I originally purchased these in brown leather as 7.5, which is my usual size. They were definitely too small and I had to return, but the brown was sold out. I ended up with the white and I am quite happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes with everything! And so comfortable. I’ve worn these with everything. Perfect for work or for fun. 8-10 hour work days without any blisters. Love them! I normally wear an 8.5, and these ran true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the white leather I have a mule addiction and the only cure is more Harper Mule! Seriously though, this is a great staple shoe and transitions nicely for work. I have wide, bunion-y feet and the fit was spot on. I haven't worn them around a lot yet because it's still very wintery in Minnesota and I don't want to ruin them. I could see this style in a few unexpected colors as well: oxblood, mint, red, etc...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart eyes I have super narrow feet and these totally worked for me. These are crafted so beautifully (the stitching, quality of leather- all of it is giving me major heart eyes)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vintage Versatility I'm usually a 6.5 in Madewell heels and a 7 in flats but ordered these in a size 7.5 so my heels wouldn't stick off the back and they fit perfectly. I got the white ones and the color reminds me of my saddle shoes from high school. Such a vintage creamy white (and that's a good thing!). I was afraid walking in these would hard (especially going up and down stairs) but they are surprisingly easy to walk in! These also go so well with a variety of outfits despite the color (I was really unsure about WHITE shoes but I have been converted). Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mule I love this mule. The comfort level is awesome given the new padding they added to their shoes and the style is on trend. It’s a super easy show to throw on with jeans or perhaps a denim skirt, I bought the amber brown and the the style and color go well with everything. Block heel is great especially for someone who doesn’t like wearing heels. Me. Sizing is true to size since I went with my normal size and they fit great. I’ve seen the white pair on a friend and they are also really good. You can’t go wrong with these mules!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these, so comfortable I bought the ivory version and now want them all. So cute and so easy. Madewell shoes are some of the best fitting shoes for me as I usually find other shoes too narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shoe! These mules are a dream! With no break-in required, they are comfortable (even with the heel), sleek, and look great with jeans or a skirt/dress. I am usually a 7-7.5 and the 7.5 fits perfect. Love the vintage canvas, but may need them in all the colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, classy, retro, and goes well with everything! Got these in size 5, which is my normal size and they were perfect. I have normal width feet and they are comfortable. Heel height is perfect and I was able to walk around downtown without any problem. The leather is buttery soft, but I think it could also make for it to tear/scratch easily. After wearing it the first time to do light walking/shopping, I noticed a super small scratch, not too noticeable. I really hope this shoe lasts because it matches with most outfits and can be dressed up or down.
