The Barlow Mule

The Barlow Mule is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday mules. These mules are beautiful- all leather, easy on my feet. Sizing information: I wear a women's 7.5 / 8. Based on reviews, I ordered both sizes b/c I knew I needed these in my closet (nearest Madewell store is 150+ miles away). I chose to keep the 7.5. My heel is close to the edge as other reviews state; however, these mules will give the more I wear them b/c they are all leather. In a size 8, the length was to my liking, but the width was not. Every couple of steps my feet would slip out (about half way- even caught myself using my toes to grip on to them!) So there you have my story. Hope this helps you with your sizing decision ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with skinnies, cali boot cut, dresses, everything! One of my favourite pairs of shoes I own! I can wear them all day and still be comfortable. I sized up 1/2 a size because everyone was saying to in the reviews. I was glad a first but as you wear them the leather relaxes and I think I would have been better off with my real size. Definitely recommend, they go great with my skinny jeans, cali boot jeans, boyfriend jeans, dresses, ANYTHING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect shoe! They were a bit off in sizing, i had to go up a half size, but when i did so they fit perfectly. I've worn them every single day since buying them. Living in NYC a comfortable shoe is really important to me, and i would consider this a good long wear city shoe! (give or take a blister or two to break them in for long walks). I highly recommend to anyone who is even considering purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes so much! So, I really hate buying shoes. I'm not a shoe person, and I have temperamental feet from years of ballet, which makes finding comfortable and cute shoes difficult. However, I fell in love with the simple yet elegant design of these mules. The feel of the leather is Overall, the shoe is just beautiful. The best part is how well these fit my feet, and how comfortable they are to wear. There's enough support and padding, and my foot feels kind of like it's being craddled if that makes sense. Given the quality, comfort, and style I feel like the cost per wear makes these a no-brainer. I'm usually a 6-6.5 in shoes but found these fit best in a 6. There's no pinching or tightness, and they stay put on my feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! I LOVE these mules. I'm a teacher, so I'm on my feet walking for 7-8 hours a day, and these are my new favorite shoes for work. They were instantaneously comfortable and I want to buy the brown pair now as well. For reference, I wear a 10 and I have fairly wide feet; the 10s fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE. Originally bought these in a 7.5 (my usual size in Madewell flats and boots) and had to size up to an 8 since my heel hung over a bit. I LOVE the look of these. They're super sleek without making your feet look bigger. Super comfortable and they stay on my feet well. Another plus is that the bottoms are softer and don't clank on hard floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love! You guys, I LOVE these mules. I had been kicking myself for missing out on Madewell's last mule style (released last summer) and then these showed up in new arrivals and I knew I had to try! I tried them on in person in the store and knew they had to come home with me. The leather is high quality and they are very comfortable. I was deciding between my true size and going up a half size, but with the help of the lovely girls in the shop, decided on my true size. They will stretch a bit. Big fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST!! I LOVE these mules! I purchased them in black, and they are so delightful to wear! Very on trend with a much more reasonable price point than other designers. These mules are well made and sooo comfortable. The leather inside and out is buttery soft. First time I wore them was for a 6 hour shift on my feet (with lots of walking) and I had zero pain. I am usually a 7.5, but I purchased these in a 7 only because I have very narrow/boney feet and I find shoes like this to easily slip off my feet. The 7s are a great fit and I don't feel like I have to walk weird to keep them on my feet. The leather upper goes far enough back/to the side of your foot that it is very secure on your feet. I wore these with the Cali Demi jeans in Kane wash and received tons of compliments on both! Considering purchasing the wet pebble color as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE perfect mule I adore this shoe for so many reasons: 1. I have very wide feet with large bunions that need to be surgically addressed. And these leather mules fit perfectly (I am a trie 8 and the 8 was perfect). 2. The leather is so soft its like wearing slippers. 3. The tiny "heel" is perfect for all day wear - plenty of support. 4. Talk. About. Style! I hate wearing flats, but these are so classic, simple, yet stylish I wear them nearly all weekend, every weekend. 5. Come cooler weather (one day in SoCal it'll happen!) I can wear these to work with a fun sweater dress and still be corporately approved. You won't regret them - I have the black and will be ordering the other color.
