Learn All About the Cap-Toe Shoe Trend
The cap-toe shoe is characterized by its signature toe, which in traditional styles is simply an extra piece of leather, or “cap,” over the toe. These caps are typically a different material, and almost always a different color, pattern, or texture than the rest of the shoe. This serves to emphasize the toe, bringing all the attention to the front. The cap gives a certain special something to a shoe that might otherwise be plain and unadorned.
There are many ways to wear cap-toe shoes, but this season's styles tend to emphasize current trends. For example, color blocking is hotter than ever, and the style has translated well to cap-toe heels. It’s not uncommon to see blue shoes with magenta caps, or orange shoes with bright-blue tips. Designers have also capitalized on trends like metallics and studs, incorporating them into their cap-toe pumps.
