I absolutely agree that that toe shape will be capable of objectively agreeing with certain body types regardless of time period; I just don't think it'll be fashionable, and I think it'll be sufficiently played out that people won't want to wear it.

As pocketsquare comments, as long as things stay in proportion to flatter one's figure and cut of clothing, I don't think it's possible to say when something will no longer be seen as stylish. Especially when it is a classic like dub monks.
It certainly is difficult to forecast trends, especially in higher-end men's clothing. I'm certainly no arbiter elegantium, and naturally it's all a matter of opinion. But I suspect that this kind of very thin, near-chisel, extreme-Anthony Cleverley-esque thing won't have a long shelf life.
