Just what I was looking for!
I had been on the quest for neutral mules for a long time but all ran too small for my size 10.5 feet. I was so happy to find a pair that actually fit (size 41) from a local Austin company. They’re beautifully crafted and have worn really well. I will note that I got blisters the first time I wore them (sockless) so after that bought some toe socks with silicone grips on the bottom and they’ve been perfect with those.
This is my first pair of shoes from Fortress of Inca after saving enough up to purchase from them and I will definitely be buying again! These mules are perfection. The navy color is a gorgeous hue that complements all denim. The leather is sturdy as well as buttery soft. I pulled these shoes out of the box and could immediately wear them for a full work day. I’ve never owned shoes that we so comfortable from the get go! The shape of the shoe is extremely stylish, but timeless enough to age in the years to come. I also adore this 2” heel – enough to give me some height without sacrificing the feel of wearing flat shoes. I would HIGHLY recommend buying these shoes and cannot wait for the next pair that I purchase from this ethical brand!
Bought this pair in the burgundy in a 37 (I usually wear between a 7 and 7 1/2) and they are PERFECT. I received a compliment on their very first wear! I love the color (a bit of a deeper browner red than I imagined—very elegant and versatile) and shape and they are supremely comfortable. I already have a pair of the Madeline’s in a gorgeous unique blue—these are probably my favorites in my closet. I am still getting a little used to wearing mules rather than a closed heel, so haven’t worn them long distance, but the comfortable low heel means I can wear them with socks or without, with jeans, leggings, or dresses—the sky’s the limit!

The style is timeless and simple. You can wear these for a wedding or for a casual day at work. Aside from the beautiful style, they’re also incredibly comfortable! Worth every penny, especially because they’ll last a lifetime. The quality is excellent!
Very comfortable, stylish
I love these. They’re classy, comfortable and have just the right amount of heel.

Stylist tip: It is often best to buy leather shoes that fit snug upon first wear. This will allow them to soften and stretch around your feet.
