During these times, it can be hard to figure out just how dressed up we need to get.

We’re kind of always at home, but also dashing out to the supermarket every once in a while, or taking the dog out around the block for few minutes. And during “office hours”, the fact that we’re barefoot and probably in our pyjamas can’t be great for our work ethic. That’s why backless loafers – or call them mules if you want – are the style saviours we all need right now. Just like your indoor slippers, they’re easy to slip on and off. But unlike your indoor slippers, they’re also mad baller and can help to put you in the perfect professional mindset. Wear them inside, wear them outside – backless loafers are the ideal style companions during this confusing time. Here are a few of our favourites.
