I have two things to say about that. First, this new pair I've only worn once so it has not had time to round out the toe. Second, that older pair also had a shoe tree shoved up it's innards for many years which may have made it look rounder. If I were to flip the shoe over so you see the sole, you'll see that it's pretty square. More so than the front top would indicate.
In any case, my point still stands. Squares are Tod's signature style. I also agree that this season's style really suck. They have the fake Tod's penny in the penny loafer which you can't remove and the colorful suede driving mocs that are so 80's.
