The first Viberg mule we've brought in, and we're not sure why we waited this long. The Viberg Mule Safari Janus Calf Suede is an excellent slip-on pair that will elevate your style, no matter which way you look at it. Why opt for a flip-flop when you've got a mule? Oh it's summer and you want to wear some Goodyear welted shoes? Why not keep it breezy on your heels with these mules? The Safari suede is a light-colored tan/orange suede, which should darken over time for some excellent suede patina. Read our 3-month review here.
Note: Viberg mules are built on Viberg's 2030 last. Viberg recommends you take 1 size down from your Brannock for these. Based on our own experience trying on several sizes/pairs of these specific Safari Janus Calf Suede Mules, our recommendation is to either take 1.5 or 1 sizes down from Brannock. Most folks should take 1 down from Brannock, which gives your feet more room to fit within the upper/vamp to better keep the Mules on your feet. If you are on the smaller end of your size, you could go 1.5 down from Brannock for a similar fit. Or, if you just prefer a more snug fit you can go down 1.5 - your heel may just ever so slightly be sitting on the back lip though (not very notable as you are walking as your heel will be coming up off the insole). If you plan to wear with socks, we do not recommend going 1.5 down from Brannock.
Model: 10E Brannock wearing size 9, leaving ample room on the back end for the heel and also allowing his feet more room to slide into the upper/vamp to keep the Mules more secure. Model can also size down to 8.5, but the Mules are slightly less "sticky" on his feet as the upper does not cover as much of his feet, and his heel is also slightly touching the back lip.
