We love a good mule for three important reasons. One: Mules are easy to slip on. Two: Mules are (or at least they should be) comfortable AF. Three: Mules are the cooler cousin of your boring work flats.

The best time to wear mules is, hands down, during the fall. Once winter hits, it’s rain city, baby, and you’ll need to whip out your best ankle and combat boots. Whether you’re shopping for all things pumpkin spice at your local Trader Joe’s, watching Hocus Pocus for the millionth time, or apple-picking in upstate New York, we’ve rounded up 15 fall mules to accompany your autumn activities. Much like flannels and cozy knits, mules definitely warrant fall staple status.

Below, 15 of the chicest fall mules to shop this season.
