Square-toe sandals are trending. Are you a fan? I just bought a pair of silver square-toe sandals that I wore with a blue zip dress, and I’m sold on this chic, new trend.
Besides dresses, I also like my square-toe sandals with these cute waist-tie pants. I think they give this look a chic, modern vibe.
What are Square Toe Sandals?
Square-toe sandals are cut straight across the toe like someone has taken a pair of scissors and snipped off the rounded part. Some are blunter and sharp-looking, others taper in slightly, but they tend to make a bold statement.
I find women are divided regarding this type of toe, which was last popular back in the ’90s. Some feel that square-toe sandals look awkward and clunky, and that’s understandable since they date back to medieval times when common folk strapped wooden blocks to their feet.
The other camp, myself included, finds square-toe sandals incredibly chic and fashion-forward because they’re a bit unusual.
What to Wear With Square-toe Sandals?
There’s no rule for what you can or cannot wear with square-toe sandals, but I prefer them with something more casually chic. A square toe is more sporty than a sexy pointy toe or a practical rounded toe. Why not pair some square-toe sandals with cropped jeans, shorts, or a casual sundress or pants?
These espadrille-style pink suede, square-toe sandals are adorable. Square-toe shoes are more masculine than pointy-toe shoes, so I like how this bright pink color, which is so feminine, helps balance that out.
Are Square Toe Sandals Comfy?
For anyone with foot problems or wider feet that come with aging (I can relate to that), square-toe sandals are very comfy. There’s much extra room, so your toes aren’t all scrunched together or hanging off the edge. Also, most square-toe sandals have chunky heels (the chunky heel complements the square toe), which also translates into a more comfortable shoe.
I’ve noticed a lot of suede square-toe sandals lately. These sky-blue ones are incredibly chic, and I love the artsy double strap. I’ve paired these sandals with a pair of striped blue jeans and a white top because when you have a shoe that you want everyone to notice, you don’t want to distract by a lot of other colors or tons of detail in your outfit.
Where to Buy Square Toe Sandals?
As you know, wedges are not at the forefront of fashion, but they are not out of style either. I think that’s because they are remarkably comfy shoes that women depend on.
By combining a trending square toe with a go-to wedge, you get this stylish, tan suede square-toe sandal. And, of course, this fantastic wooden wedge, which is so unique, gives this sandal extra brownie points.
This is a great, comfy, classy, neutral shoe for summer, and in this tan suede color, the square toe detail is exquisite and chic. What do you think? Do you like the square toe sandal trend? Are you willing to give them a try?
We will see if this trend carries on into the fall with square-toe shoes.
I bought a pair of mustard square-toe loafers last fall, but I think they will be even more popular this September. Closed square-toe shoes are attractive, but I believe that square-toe sandals look chicer. The closed toe can sometimes make the foot look stumpy.
