RACE-DAY MULES FOR EVERY BUDGET

By Elizabeth Odey, 12 September 2017

Racewear accessories call for two things: a solid squad and some practi-cute footwear. We can’t help with the first (soz) but, when it comes to shoes, look no further than the metallic mule. Sleek, grass friendly and an easy slip-on-kick-off style = winning. If you're after one pair to rule the season, gold and silver tones are a step above nude but neutral enough to tackle the race-day dress codes from pastel through to purple. Giddy up…

Although nothing rhymes with ‘silver’ – trust us, we've tried – everything in your wardrobe works with it. From floral dresses in the stands to decon denim in the streets, these little beauties will always take the first-place footwear crown.

If you’re looking for a style that’ll add a little razzle-dazzle to your race-day dress, these textured braided trotters are it. A higher block heel dials up the fancy, while the wider surface area keeps gravity in check.

A mid-block heel in soft metallic gold – these are the definition of quality and comfort. Don’t let the price tag scare you, though, the 100% leather upper means they'll see you right through the season (of 2020...).
