Everlane’s New Sandal Is the Sock Bootie of Spring
You may not be able to wear all of your spring looks out and about what with the entire world practicing social distancing and self-quarantining, but that can’t stop you from looking to (and shopping for) the future. Thinking about what you’ll wear to work, events, or even simple outings is actually quite a hopeful activity. It’s a practice in visualizing a time when we can embrace our friends and family, touch a subway pole with reckless abandon, and see essential workers have a well-deserved break.
All this to say if you’re still able to online shop, a little retail therapy can go a long way — both for your mental health and the economy — and we’re already envisioning ourselves in Everlane’s latest shoe drop: the Glove Mule. The low block heel with a knit upper made from recycled polyester is essentially the warm-weather version of Everlane’s wildly popular Glove Boot, which our editors rigorously tested last fall.
The mule features an open square toe that peeks out from the brand’s signature ReKnit fabric, along with a cushioned insole for comfort. The upper material is designed to hold its shape while providing just a bit of stretch for a glove-like fit (as the name suggests). Perfect for pairing with wide-legged cropped pants or a dress, the shoe has classic appeal with a modern twist. What’s more, each pair is made from five renewed plastic bottles, in keeping with Everlane’s sustainable mission.
The heels are available in five hues, including bone white, lilac purple, and toffee orange. Whether you’re looking for a shoe that will stand out or act as a neutral accessory, there’s a color for every occasion — even if that occasion may be months away.
If you’re envisioning yourself wearing these sleek mules the second you can safely hit up your old haunts, you can buy a pair from Everlane for under $100 right now. Think of it as an investment in your future self.
