Asked Questions

How do I know my size in The Ballet Mule?

Our Ballet Mule is cut so that your heel sits right at the edge of the insole. This style was designed to fit without much space between your heel and the edge of the sole. If you prefer a bit of additional space behind your heel, consider sizing up by a half size.

How do I know my width in The Ballet Mule?

Medium width is considered standard, so if you generally find standard widths comfortable in other shoes, we suggest taking a Medium. However, if you find that other shoes often pinch or feel too tight around the ball of your foot, the Wide is a fantastic option to try. It is made on a combination last, with the toe box being the only area that is wider. (It's also a great option to try if you have bunions.) The Narrow will be more narrow throughout the entirety of the shoes; it's a good option if you find your foot frequently slips or feels insecure in a standard width.

How does the fit compare to other styles?

The Ballet Mule is a structured, slip-on style with a similar fit to our other open-back flats, like The Mule.

How do I care for my Ballet Mules?

Our nappa Ballet Mules are made from a soft, Italian nappa leather that's permeable, so avoid exposure to water and rain. To maintain the sheen and finish over time, you can use a quality leather lotion. Our suede Ballet Mules are made from Italian suede, a surprisingly durable material. Marks and scuffs to the suede can be gently removed using a suede brush and cleaning spray, like those provided in our suede care kit here. Regular treatment with a protectant spray can also help prevent signs of future wear.
