Speaking of square toes, no doubt it's a slippery slope. But then who wants a clear path?
What about this shoe?http://www.sinner.jp/sample/design-o...9/img/01_l.jpg
Here's a closeup of the toe:http://www.sinner.jp/sample/design-o...9/img/05_l.jpg

These shoes were all made by a Mr. Seki. Thanks to centipede for the sinner.jp link.
And what about all the norvegese and bentivegna constructed shoes by Branchini, Mantellassi, StefanoBi, etc. Those all have marvelous and s.times very squared toes.
Now if the question is simply who wears the corrected-grain Kenneth Cole (or, perhaps even worse yet, Kenneth Cole inspired!) rectangular block monstrosities that have been oozing forth like sewage from the factory spigot all these years, then I imagine the answers might be a bit more clear cut.
