    Square-toed shoes

    Before you all start yelling at me: I know that square-toed shoes are not fashionable. However, I do have to pairs of shoes that are slightly square-toed but not to much. Since I am a student (and therefore always short on money) I was wondering if I could still get away with wearing them or whether I should buy new ones as soon as possible.

    For some annoying reason I cannot embed the photos into the post, so please follow this link and tell me your opinion on them:

    Thanks a lot

    I think they are more chisel toe, square toe is more extreme and ugly than what you have pictured. I think they are fine if you are on a budget. Not the best shoes money can buy but Im sure they are a lot better than most of the students I see wearing.

    Boots are doable but the shoes need to see the inside of a bin asap imo

    I disagree-- I don't see anything particularly wrong with any of the shoes you posted. Like Matt said above, it's more of a chisel toe than an extreme square, like this:

    I'd say the tan shoes are more pointy than square, which is why I don't like them

    They make me think of this

    Pahaha that link will never fail to make me piss myself. The shoes are okaaaaaay. If you can't afford new ones, then they are wearable.

    Okay, thanks guys. I will keep the shoes and boots for now but replace the shoes until the summer.

    I'm the opposite, I actually think the shoes look OK, so long as you wear them with well fitting slim/skinny trousers. Not a fan of the boots myself, bit too 'cowboy' for me!

    I'm with Jonesy on this. The shoes aren't that bad, but I got no love for those boots.

    Agreed, I think the Shoes are wearable and the Boots should go.

    I am selling a size 7 shoe, I would say these were chisel toe.
