I'm not sure what an "apron toe" shoe is, but I believe the apron is the part on a blucher or derby that covers the top part of the foot. The apron usually either leads to a split toe or non split toe front. http://www.bensilver.com/fs_storefro...y=3651&group=1 So an "apron toe" does sort of sound like it could be similar to a bicycle toe, but I've never heard that term.

I just got a pair a bicycle square toe shoes for my birthday, my question is are they durable?  Do they last a long time or do they fall apart after a year or six months?

Okay, this needs to end.

I don't know what "bicycle toe" shoes are, and all of the shoes in this thread are ugly.

I do own two pairs of traditional split toe shoes, specifically, Paraboot Rousseau and Prevert. They are comfortable and and elegant choice for more casual ensembles.

Return them immediately. Get nice shoes instead.

Without knowing the manufacturer, we have no way of knowing how long they will last. However, in the case of squared/bicycle-toed shoes, durability is a detriment. I agree with the other posters that you should return them.

Well, the thread got necroed, so I may as well ask.

 

Do these qualify as bicycle-toe shoes?

Yup.

And I honestly like them. Most of the shoes in this thread are ugly because they're cheap, and designed by makers appealing to idiots and trends among idiots.

Those are something different. Those are fuck you shoes that the designer made to show that the bicycle toe could work. They're two tone walnut and green because, well, fuck you.

^ Can't argue with that.
