Square-toe shoes are officially this season’s key footwear

Street style snaps are often a good indication of the current hottest trends, and so far, some of the tested and proven looks include oversized tailoring, fluffy feathers, and vivid gemstone hues—we'll gladly sport all three trends in one look. But besides that, there's a footwear style that's been quietly revived by some of the biggest brands, and it's none other than square-toe shoes. Popular in the '90s, the angular silhouette may not have the trendiest rep in the past, but two decades later, it's been brought back with a contemporary twist.

Heels-wise, the leather sandals from Balenciaga will definitely lend the simplest of looks a striking finish. One of the most spotted pairs around town? Bottega Veneta's mesh-and-chain pumps by creative director Daniel Lee. Don't forget to rock a bright and bold nail colour to amp up the style ante. At Proenza Schouler, the classic black boots were given a reinterpretation with an added platform that fully embraces the square-toe trend. Cult Gaia's strappy pair is no doubt one of our favourites—pair it with a laidback maxi dress and you're all set for the weekend. For those who prefer flat shoes, Burberry's two-toned loafers are great for work (and play), and Gucci's embellished canvas sandals are the pair we'll be wearing all day, everyday.
