Man of Lint wins the prize for being clear, civil, and funny. I never knew a simple question would create such a heated conversation. We are not talking about global politics here....just shoes.
I appreciate all the feedback. Since I have never had a problem getting into clubs, or dating who I want- regardless of what I am wearing- I never put much thought into the toebox of the shoe. That said, I have learned a fair bit so far, even from the few who may need anger management classes. Thank you all for the conversation.
Welcome to Style Forum. We get heated about a lot of things here (look up Hugo Boss). Square-toed shoes are ugly and usually cheap and glued and a rite of passage to joining SF is to burn a pile of square-toed shoes and Hugo Boss suits to appease the pocket square gods.
To reply to a previous supposition of yours, I don't think John Lobb currently makes any square-toed shoes and I hope that he never did.
Another supposition of yours: Prada makes good shoes. This is an untruth.
