Hiii, I’m back with the JW Anderson Chain mules review & discount code for all of you. I have been obsessed with these shoes since summer of this year and I’m so happy that I finally got them. I’m especially happy that I got this for 50% off from Luisaviaroma. Literally, insane, but I’ll get to that a bit later down in the post. Side-note: since I wrote this post when I freshly got these shoes, I’ll make a few sections down below with my review as time goes (first few days, first few months, a year update etc.)
Mod shots to get started 🙂

Without further ado, here’s my JW Anderson Chain mules review, where I bought them & discount code
First review after the first few days (30+ km) with these shoes
I love love walking and yet, I’m the queen of uncomfortable shoes and getting the worst kinds of blisters. I had no expectations on whether or not these shoes would be comfortable, especially since the chains look super heavy. But, surprisingly, these have held up so well in my long walks.
My JW Anderson Chain mules is extremely easy to walk on and they’re shaped so ergonomically that it actually feels really lightweight and comfortable. The insole of these mules remind me a lot of the Birkenstock sandals. The corks of these shoes really form to your feet and it literally hugs every part of your feet. These mules are a bit stiff, but it’s nothing that you notice over time.
Honestly, I am extremely happy with these shoes. They’re super convenient to use (literally just a slip on) and they’re really comfortable. These (and the uggs I’ve had since 7+ years ago) have been my go-to shoes the past December. Whether I’m out for groceries, getting my lashes done, going around town doing whatever, these mules have become my trusted ally.
I got mine in Olive Green and I’m surprised at how easy it is to pair with the majority of my outfits. This shade of Olive Green goes so so beautifully with the gold chain. And, the shade is so perfect with long flowy black pants. Personally, I find this color more interesting than the black pair (which I initially wanted to get). The shade is quite dark, but still lighter than the regular black. It’s also so complementary to dark & light pants and very very muted.
Honestly, I have way too many black shoes and the Olive Green tint is just the perfect addition to my collection.
The only “con” that I’ve noticed so far is the squeakiness of these shoes.
They walk beautifully and comfortably. But, my JW Anderson chain mules literally squeaks at every step I take. My boyfriend said that the sound reminds him of one of those squeaky pet toys. It literally sounds like I’m stepping on those. I don’t know what it is, but I’m assuming it’s the chain. It doesn’t really bother me that much as it’s honestly not that loud, especially when you’re in a crowd. When it’s quiet, it’s definitely louder than it needs to be. But, when you’re around people and when it’s busy, you really hardly notice it.
It doesn’t bother me, but if you hate repetitive squeaky noises, I don’t think these shoes will be for you.
Shopping at Luisaviaroma (my review) & the discount code for the JW Anderson Chain mules (and a bunch of other items)
If you’ve read my post on my high-level review and personal shopping experience at all the different online luxury retailers, you’d know that I didn’t have the best experience with Luisaviaroma (packaging and delivery wise). But, since that post, I’ve shopped with them twice more and it’s never been as bad as how it was the first time.
Luisaviaroma is absolutely insane with its discounts and deals. They often have pop-up sales for a limited time where you can get 30-50% off of their collection (excluding those marked with a ✭), or an extra 20% off of the items on sale. It’s crazy good. They have a huge collection of items and definitely worth checking out.
– BF40 / BF50* (during black friday)
– HL40 / HL50* (Christmas winter break)
*only valid at certain hours only & for a limited time.
Other codes which I used before listed on my other post here.
You can see the options directly from Luisaviaroma here, or you can see the options (marked without a ✭) below:
Other options where the JW Anderson Chain mules is on sale (link is in green):
–Mytheresa (both the male & female collection), a ton of different options on sale for 30-50% off. You can also get 10% off of the black version if it’s your first order with mytheresa and it’s over 600€ with the code REWARD10.
–Matches Fashion (one of my favorite online luxury retailers, highly recommend!)
–Fashionette (NL) 30% off on the tan one, the shearling one is also on sale here.
–Shoebaloo (NL) 50% off of the black one!
–SSENSE (a ton of different options, but not that much % off imo)
–LN-CC, the black one is 344€
To conclude, would I recommend it?
1000000%. If you’re thinking of getting these mules, honestly I think you should just get it. It’s so good and right now is the time to buy it. The discounts are crazy good and I can’t pass up a good deal. I’m just as obsessed with these shoes as I was with it last summer. It’s extremely comfortable and it’s super simple, yet anything but simple in its looks. I love it.
I’ve gotten so many compliments on them (weirdly enough, mostly from middle-aged and older men), but it’s just absolutely eye-catching and beautiful. It elevates your outfits and it’s just so ugly but so gorgeous at the same time. I love it and can’t recommend it enough. It’s both comfortable and beautiful.
As always, I’ll update this as time goes and if I find more links, I’ll definitely add them to the list. I hope this article helped in any way. Thanks for reading <3

Hi- I have these same mules and the left one squeaks. It was driving me crazy so I put a small piece of rolled up clear scotch tape in the joint where the two links meet and it stopped! Thanks for your post on these shoes!
Omg no way! Thank you so much for sharing this trick, I’m dying to try it now 💚

I am so grateful for you! The tape did the trick!!
Hi – can I ask what the chain is made of? Assume its plastic otherwise would be to heavy to walk in?
Hii! My boyfriend did the clanking test to compare the sound that it makes and it’s closer to metal than it is to plastic. I’m assuming it’s hollowed out metal which is why it’s so light. The feel & touch also doesn’t feel plastic-y. But, I’m not really sure and haven’t seen an online retailer that confirms it. Hope this somewhat helps!

Hiya I have the black ones which I love. Missed out on the dark olive 🙁
I have just spotted the men’s version of embossed tan shearling and was wondering if the men’s version is made slightly wider than the female version?
Ooh I think I’ve seen this one, they’re cute! Tbh I’m not sure but I don’t think so (the men’s look almost the same as the women’s). Did you find this on Luisaviaroma or Matchesfashion? If so, I recommend sending them a quick email, they respond super quick (and have been helpful so far with my sizing & styling questions) and maybe they can help confirm! 💓
