The Gemma Mule in Velvet

The Gemma Mule in Velvet is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from hello, gorgeous These shoes are absolutely perfect. Beautifully crafted and easy to wear, these shoes compliment any look and pull it together. I am obsessed with the color; they look slightly different in every light. Pair these with an ankle length flowy dress for casual drinks or slightly cropped pants for work. Perfect for fall. LOVE THESE! It is no wonder they are mostly sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with these! As I was placing my order on the other day, I said to myself, you do NOT need another pair of slides. But I knew the minute I saw these I had to have them! The color is beautiful!! They are so unique and definitely different than anything else is out there. They're unbelievably comfortable -- like wow. Seriously like wearing slippers. As others have mentioned, they do run a little on the narrow side, but I took my normal size with no problem. If there are any left in your size, run, don't walk, and buy these now. Madewell, PLEASE make these in more colors -- I will buy them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Love these so much! Perfect for the fall, and the color is beautiful. They are very comfortable and I had no issues with blisters on the first few wears like I usually do with most flats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a rich shoe! I just received these yesterday and let me tell you, I am obsessed! They're very soft leather and are extremely comfortable. The wine color is so rich and the velvet gives off such a classy vibe, they dress up any outfit with ease. I've gotten MANY compliments on these and already have had people ask me where I got them. Seriously, get the shoes. Don't even think twice about it, they're worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pretty! I absolutely love this shoe. The color is a lovely dark red/wine and is so soft. I wear between an 8-8.5 and an 8 in this was a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On Trend Lovely Pinot color. Velvet quality is good and does not look cheap. I wear 7.5 in most madewell shoes and these fit true to size for me. My foot is not narrow and I did not need to size up for extra width or length in the toes. Comfortable right out of the box. Recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Presto! I'm put together! First off: definitely order 1/2 size up. I am normally a 9, which I tried on in store. It was both juuuuuust too short and juuuuust too narrow. Only slightly, but it would have made the shoes uncomfortable. The 9.5 is perfection. Super comfortable. I love shoes that I can just throw on (lazy, I know - I prefer "effortless" but...) and these have that ease all while looking high-effort posh without being over the top. I instantly feel pulled together. Oh and that color? Such a lush deep red that makes me think of old school movie theatres with red velvet cushions and old Hollywood glamour. Seriously, just get the shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous This shoe is a great wardrobe update without being overly trendy. The velvet is the most beautiful wine color and the quality seems great. Very comfortable and easy to walk in. I purchased a size 7 and usually wear a 6.5-7. The 6.5 would have self been too small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color like a fine wine I'm a big fan of mules in general. They're fancier than flip flops, but just as quick to put on, and somehow they look like I've got my life a bit more together. Then, Madewell puts these mules out in this rich wine velvet with slightly pointy toes, and somehow I went from barely pulled together to totally posh. I'm not even sure how it happened because it was that quick and they are that comfortable that I feel like they've been a staple forever. I've only just gotten these, but I'm obsessed and the pizza delivery man complimented them, so I'm pretty sure they're a hit already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life is short... get the shoes Comfortable and so cute!! I can't speak to the durability of the velvet, but these are so beautiful. Even more beautiful in person. The shoe is cushioned which makes it easy to wear right out of the box!
