Alepel’s Artsy Mules Are the Perfect Transitional Footwear

Adriana Epelboim-Levy may be a professionally trained architect, but she shares our love of fabulous footwear. The Venezuelan designer’s Miami-based label features hand-painted shoes that are more like wearable pieces of art than mules.

Alepel brings together architecture, art and fashion seamlessly. Each pair is made in Brazil and hand-painted by local Miami artists. There are stunning tropical prints and natural motifs. Still have a thing for animal prints? Alepel offers everything from snakes to leopards and tigers. Some mules boast different designs on each shoe, making for interesting mismatched sets. The brand even has statement clutches designed to complement its footwear.

Now that we’ve convinced you to give them a go, here are the best mules Alepel has to offer.
