Dramatic Oversized Laced Mules

LANVIN's Curb Mule is a Summer-Ready Iteration of the Curb Sneaker

— May 21, 2022 — Lifestyle
LANVIN updates its iconic Curb Sneaker that is altered to cater to the summer season with the brand new Curb Mule option for the season. It also has built-in ventilation on the sides of the silhouette to add a touch of breathability. The most notable design language is rooted in the chunky laces over the forefoot in a colorful hue and the signature bulky silhouette of the original curb.

The mule follows most of the same design aesthetic as it has a sneaker and looks almost the same from the front. The back is entirely a slipped-on design and the aforementioned ventilation is seen through the side cut-out details that rest right above the midsoles.
