@subtle - nice job on the photos. I wonder what the other half of your collection consist of? More of the same styles - or other styles? 

I like your stiletto styles (whether pumps, d'orsay, sandals or peeps) and wedges. 
By the way - in the sandals shot - is the 2nd left also a wedge?

I keep meaning to make a sorta "catalog" of my own heels as well, just as you have done. One day … 

Great job!

Mainly a variety of boots, mostly booties or block heels.

they're great, I really like most of her styles - classic and sexy  look. I have a pair of wedges (ok, you got me, my wife's actually... but I think I have worn them more than she has!) very similar - a brown wedge, with double cross over straps. From Fioni - attaching below.

@subtle, I am simply curious--what is your personal definition of the difference between a mule and a slide? I see you used both terms to describe what I see as the same style of shoe. I have a special interest because more than half of my collection consists of backless shoes of one sort or another, and I have my own personal terminology that I use, whether it's technically "correct" or not.

Hi, that’s a pretty impressive collection there to be honest mate, love how you’ve managed to categorise them, is it mainly shoes you wear or do you like boots too? And interested to know what size you wear as they don’t look overly large although pictures can be deceiving, I’m only a uk 5 so great when you can buy straight off the shelf.

   Keep enjoying your heels mate and look forward to seeing more in the future

Wow!  Quite the variety.  As another reader stated, I also like the stilettos best.

They are all mostly all US11, so   uk 9 1/2?

Have about 10 pairs of boots.

It’s a bit blurry to be honest, hence the reason for a dual category.

I think these terms are both used loosely (no pun intended!) and there is little real difference.   A mule is any backless footwear, but the term 'slide' seems to be used nowadays for an open-toed flat or low-heel mule-sandal, because one can simply 'slide into' them.   But then a flip-flop or backless thong sandal (subtlety different) are also 'slides' but not normally described as such.   Imho, the term slide is arguably redundant.   What is your terminology, mlroseplant?

I have mules, backless footwear with a wide band over my foot.  I slide into them, but I don't have open-toed flat or low-heel slides.

I tend to refer to any backless shoe as a mule, but I think that the more correct definition is that it ought to be closed toe. Just to avoid any confusion, I refer to what might be more properly called a "slide" as an "open toed mule." I do have a few pairs of backless shoes that you "slide" into, but most of them must be wiggled into, because it's kind of critical that they are pretty snug so you don't lose one accidentally whilst you are walking. So I suppose we could call them "wiggles?" No, that reminds me too much of that silly group of Australian men who had that children's show once upon a time.

To further muddy the waters, where do open backed clogs fit into this picture? Much like pornography, I can't really define it, but I know it when I see it. Having said that, I do own several pairs of mules that look kind of cloggy. Or would that be clogs that look rather mule-y?

Historically, I think you are right that mules were closed-toe - but I maintain the view that any backless footwear is a mule, and that includes the sub-category of backless clogs, which are essentially chunky mules, usually with a wooden sole (or they may be all wood, as in the Netherlands version).   If 'slides' (or 'sliders') are anything, they are also a sub-category - typically open-toe but with the main characteristic of having a front part that is shallow, so readily 'slid' into.   

A Berkemann clog would be a mule, as would a Berkemann original sandal - but the latter is also a slide (so-called) - and of course a sandal:

I wish that Berkemann would market shoes / sandals in the United States.  I really like the look of their shoes....   sf

I sympathise; they are not easy to find in the UK, although Amazon does supply.   I enjoy wearing the Original Sandals (as pic above) in the summer - very comfortable.
