Ara's Gerty mule for women is the ideal footwear for everyday wear and leisure. The leather upper is buttery soft and supple. The outsole with a 1.75" high block heel provides comfort and support. A mule has all the ease of a slide, but the polished look of a heel, making it one of our favorite shoe styles (and a wedge heel the other, since you asked). We can attest that the Gerty mule is the ideal companion for everyday wear, city touring, or shopping trips. From the Grado collection.
