Im not sure if this is true or not but I was checking out a YT video and there was so much hate on square toed shoes. Personally I like them I wish more popular shoemakers made them like AE, BS and others.

It's true...
But hang on to any you have, because it ALL comes back around.

I swear square toe shoes are so much more stylish that round toe shoes.
Last year, I dragged an old pair of shoes from Spain out of the back of my closet that were slightly squared off. I polished them up and posted a pic.
I was immediately toe-shamed.

That sucks some people have nothing better to do, I think I'm going to start looking for some high quality square toed shoes after I find myself an inexpensive Grenadine tie lol.

At this point I think it would be worthwhile to post a pic of what you mean by square toe. I have my idea but it helps if we’re speaking the same language.

Here is one of my dusty square toe shoes. View attachment 1674823
I think you could do much better. First off, they’re incredibly dated. Even when they were en Vogue, they were ugly.

Worse than ugly, they’re uninteresting; banal.

if those shoes were a rock band they’d be Whitesnake.


if a movie? Fast and Furious

If an actor? Dwayne Johnson

if a pop band? BT…..whatever the last letter

If a book? Anything by James Patterson

If a television show? Friends

If a food? Tofu

If a dessert? French vanilla ice cream (store brand)

If a restaurant? Olive Garden

If Italian food? See above

if a car? Chevy Malibu

I see my toes screaming in pain lol.
you really don’t know that until you’ve tried them on.

If your toes are really bad or you have some medical condition, there are other options as opposed to those square toed shoes.

You can be square, and still relevant ( for probably 5 minutes ) if you're willing to go Tabi...
