Sumary of Square-Toe Shoes Are Back in Style. Your Move.:
- The digital-trend tracker SEM Rush notes a 2,500% leap in web searches for square toed shoes for women between July 2021 and July 2022.
- Meanwhile, the online shopping platform Lyst features over 24,500 square-toe women’s shoes including a faux-leather update of Ms. Cleveland’s Courrèges pair and other Judy Jetson-ish riffs from Dries Van Noten and Rupert Sanderson.
- The sharp-cornered silhouette can telegraph more than space-age modness: Prada’s slingbacks conjure the stealth wealth of ’90s socialites, while Versace’s satin platform clompers evoke Y2K’s candy rave scene.
