Summer after summer, square-toe sandals continue to reign supreme, constantly showing up on the feet of street style stars, models, and celebrities. When the boxy shape made a return to the runways a few years ago, the straight lines and pointy edges took some getting used to (how could we forget Balenciaga’s boots with their exaggerated, sharp corners?). But now, square-toe sandals are in a rare category of trends that have managed to extend their 15 minutes of fame, earning the title of a modern-day classic.
In recent spring 2023 collections, Wales Bonner dressed models in tan square-toe sandals, and Jonathan Simkhai kept the angular shape going strong with embellished variations of the popular silhouette for its resort 2023 look book. While we have to wait to get the latest and greatest, there are several other beautiful options available to shop now. Whether you’re looking for an elevated black shoe to wear every day or something colorful to brighten your summer wardrobe, the best square-toe sandals are all ahead.
