Square toe designs have been trending since 2019. The once unconventional silhouette adds a modern flare to looks and has remained a must-try shoe design thanks to brands like Bottega Veneta, The Attico, Sam Edelman and more. The style also adds dimension to looks, particular ensembles with pants, as the sharp design pokes through at the bottom. In addition to Hayek, stars including: Lizzo, Shay Mitchell, Olivia Culpo, Hailey Baldwin and more are fans of the trend.
