Just when we thought fashion is done with bringing back trends from the past — bucket hats, embellished hair clips, dad sandals, chunky sneakers and the list goes on — it doesn’t stop there. Sculptural shoes and heels have graced multiple runways throughout the year, so it’s no surprise to us that one specific design ’emerged’ as a winner and became a must-have for many. It’s unique but still very much wearable for the everyday woman (or man) — we are talking about square-toed shoes.
Unlike your average pointy flats or heels — which you’re probably wearing right now as you read this, these square-toed ones are more fashion-forward, out of the norm, interesting, even with just a slight eccentricity in its shape. It’s a silhouette from the 90s, but fashion giants redesigned its bulky and chunky form to sleek and classy-looking. These are now in an edgier streamlined silhouette instead of the previously heavy and bulky kind.
Fendi, Bottega Venetta, Burberry, Proenza Schouler and Saint Laurent have hopped onto the bandwagon, so options are definitely aplenty. Can these be an everyday staple? If you’re tired of pointy shoes, here are five square-toed shoes to choose from.
