[Shoes] Nose not touching the ground

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have noticed that on most cheaper shoes the front of the shoe doesn't touch the ground but is bending upwards.

example


i mean just look at this, it looks ridiculous to me



and with more expensive shoes the nose is touching the ground




I dont like the front facing upwards. Is this a price/manufacture thing or is it something in my head?
Does anyone know what the reason is, is it just a style? or poor craft?

To be honest, lately its the first thing i look when buying shoes

It's called "toe spring," and a few bespoke shoemakers weighed in on it recently in this thread:
