The Marabou Shoe: Trend

We all know the iconic Hollywood housewife shoe – The Marabou.

The Marabou, Fluffy Mule, or Feathered Heel, which ever you prefer to call it, has been popping up the last few years in designer collections. Giving the Marabou a whole new look from Wang to Celine the fluffy Mule has come a far way since the 1940’s. Before we check out the latest Marabou trends lets take a look at the iconic Scarlets that wore them first.

Honestly Wangs are my absolute favourite remake of the Marabou by far, even after two years of their debut they’re still my ultimate favourite fluffy heels.

And we all remember Celine’s take on fluffy heels, Phoebe Philo Spring/Summer 2013 designs.

The Marabou Heel trend has come and gone for many seasons now but I personally think its a shoe that will never lose its style.
