The Fashion Memo

The cult buy: square-toed shoes

It’s time to put your best foot forward with this season’s favorite shoe


A big fan of the barely-there sandal? Say hello to its latest evolution and our current obsession: the square-toed shoe. Championed by needle-pushing labels BEVZA, The Row and A.W.A.K.E. Mode, as well as Bottega Veneta – whose creative director Daniel Lee has dazzled fashion insiders with his ultra-covetable accessories – these minimal designs walk the line between chic and effortless. As a grown-up nod to the ’90s shoe trend, square-toed styles can be worn with straight-leg jeans and a statement top, or incorporated into your workwear repertoire of slouchy suiting for seasons to come.
