Mules and Clog Shoes Buying Guide
Traditional clog shoes were once made of wood and meant as protective clothing for mine or factory workers. Nowadays, they just refer to a comfortable pair of slip-on shoes, but its design often retains a slight bulbous look, like that of the traditional design. A mule is also a backless shoe, and depending on whose opinion, generally does not have too much of a difference with clogs. Historically speaking however, mules were fancier, higher-heeled, and designed for the upper class.
