I didn't believe whe reading in the Shoe Trend Guide on-line last month that we'd be seeing more square-toed shoes....but it's picking up, with Dita Von Teese joining Gwyneth Paltrow by stepping out in this trend.
It's a tapered in toe with a short blunt nose - rather than a fully squared toe. A nice, modern alternative to the lady-like round-toe; edgy, but not as harsh as a sharp point. A subtle squared-off toe is a great option in 2008.
Just my opinion.
