Mules are a wardrobe staple when it comes to our spring/summer shoe collections, especially if bottomless brunches are your usual plans on a Sunday. Stylish, versatile, and most importantly comfortable (because walking is hard in heels especially after a few too many spicy margaritas), they're the gift that keeps on giving.

High-street retailer River Island isn't a stranger to the mule game, with many styles featured on their website perfect for any and all occasions. But, not all mules are made equal, and one pair of River Island mules that have caught our eye are the Beige Monogram Buckle Mule Sandals that are a suspiciously similar to Gucci's Jolie Slides. For a price difference of £460, it's no surprise that shoppers are jumping at the chance to buy themselves a pair of River Island mules perfect for the summer months ahead.


River Island are game changers when it comes to making a high street dupe for a high end product - just look at its track record. From Chanel shoe dupes to Loewe bag dupes (shout out to Frankie Bridge for recommending) there's always a high quality, expensive-looking item you can buy if you're not keen on spending loads on a luxury product.

The mules come in two shades, white and beige, which are both suitable to be worn in the spring and summer. Pair with shorts and a crop top for a relaxed day on holiday or with straight leg jeans and a tucked in linen shirt for a day with friends in your local beer garden.

Take a look at River Island's Gucci mule dupes below, and snap them up before they sell out as we predict they will sell fast. Not a fan of River Island's mules? We found some similar shoes from other retailers, too.

These same but different mules are perfect to add to your existing summer shoe collection. Similar to the River Island and Gucci pair, with a rainbow hued twist.

Sure, these New Look mules aren't exactly identical to the pair over on River Island, but they certainly have the same vibe, minus the heel.
