When it comes to this summer’s biggest trend, love it or hate it, cottagecore is here to stay. At the forefront of this trend are mules of all varieties, with Birkenstock leading the charge. But this season, some strong competitors have entered the arena, with one brand in particular causing quite a stir on social media. This summer, the must-have mule comes courtesy of the iconic Dr. Marten. Serving up more edge than your average Birkenstocks, they come complete with the signature Dr. Marten sole, while still incorporating the moveable strap for multiple ways to wear (I’d opt for sport mode, personally).
Carlson Suede Mules – €129.00 // $110.00
The mules, officially titled the Carlson Suede Mules, went viral on TikTok when they finally became available in the US after being limited to Europe for the initial drop last year. The moment this happened, the American fashion girlies went wild, selling them out in a matter of days.
Perfectly paired with a long summery skirt, flowy linen pants, or a baggy pair of jorts, I predict these will be the mules of the season. And after their initial sell-out, Dr. Marten just did a re-stock in all sizes, so get them while you still can!
