If You Haven’t Yet, Now’s the Time to Shop Square-Toe Sandals

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 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 the recent resort 2022 collections, Lanvin dressed models in bright square-toe sandals and Paco Rabanne kept the playful energy going with chunky platform variations of the popular silhouette. While we have to wait to get the latest and greatest, several other beautiful options are available to shop now. Whether you’re looking for an elevated black shoe to wear every day or something colorful to brighten your summer days ahead, the best square-toe sandals are all ahead.
