What Makes a Quality Pair of Suede Mules?

What Makes a Quality Pair of Suede Mules?

December 06, 2018

When it comes to footwear, unless you have a trained eye establishing what makes a quality pair can be difficult. Some might put it down to the brand while some might consider it to be whether they are made by a bespoke tailor. However, when it comes to ready to wear suede mules, what defines a quality pair?

How they are produced

When it comes to shoes, mass production often means that the quality is lost. Of course, mass production has some element of quality control to it but it does not give you the same quality that you might find in a pair of ready to wear suede mules that come from a bespoke mobile tailoring service. Each pair will be made with care and attention to detail and because they are not made on a large scale, a greater level of concentration and time will be put into each pair.

The quality of the materials

The material that is used really does define a pair of shoes. Therefore, a quality pair of shoes will be made from premium materials, something that stands true for both the upper part of the shoe and the sole. Using the highest quality suede will ensure that the mule will consist of comfort but also an exceptional level of quality.

The sole tells a story

Believe it or not, even though the sole is relatively hidden, it can actually reveal the quality of the shoe. Cheaper shoes will commonly have soles that are made from rubber, mainly because it is a cheaper material but it also shows that costs have been reduced in the manufacturing process. While shoes that consist of a lower quality might have a leather sole, the chances are that the leather will be cheaper.

One other significant difference is that cheaper shoes will have sole glued on as opposed to stitched on because it is cheaper and quicker. When you purchase shoes from a service that offers mobile tailoring, they will be stitched on with the prerequisite due care and attention because to get it right requires skill and it takes time. This will mean that the sole will remain attached to the shoe for longer.

An improved fit

In the same way as a suit from a mobile tailoring service, the way in which a shoe fits will give you an insight into its quality. Specially made mules will certainly stand head and shoulders above mass-produced shoes. There are some shoes that claim to be made from premium fabrics that cost a lot of money but they are not on the same level as high-end mules that come from a tailoring service such as Keye London. Shoes that are mass produced are more than likely going to cause discomfort and the mistake that many people make is wearing shoes that look good instead of fitting well. When it comes to looking good, it is important that you also feel good and if your shoes are causing your problems then you really will not look good.
