Square-toe shoes are back and already the seasons hottest trend
Unlike the revolving door of clothing trends which oscillate charmingly from extreme to extreme, overarching shoe trends are more of a rarity.
Call it the Bottega Effect, but after seasons and seasons of pointed-toe shoes reigning supreme, the square toe is making a triumphant comeback. For his inaugural accessories collection at Bottega Veneta, creative director Daniel Lee debuted a bout of sleek, square-toed mules and mesh pumps that instantly won the fashion crowd over. The collection has since sparked a square toe renaissance—with more and more brands joining in on the trend this season.
From Bottega's square-toe sandals (catch them before they sell out if you can) to the brands offering more affordable iterations of the trend, these are the best square-toe shoes to shop now.
Boasting a flattering silhouette, the Tessa High Heel Sandals will add a touch of instant glam to your wardrobe! Featuring sinuous black suede straps and a sculptural heel, Tessa is sure to be your new desk to dinner favourite.

The trend isn't just for the 'gram, it also makes for a unexpected update on the 9-to-5 pump. Style square-toe mules with trousers for a chic office look. Or this look works even better with '90s-inspired minimalism, think clean silhouettes and black and white color palettes. Our go to celebrities who can't get enough of this trend right now are @hoskelsa and @taniasarin.
The shoes that prove it's hip to be square.
