A new take on the legendary cap-toe shoes

A new take on the legendary cap-toe shoes

Originally, Gabrielle Chanel designed this world-famous two-tone style in 1957 and declared it to be ‘the height of elegance’. Top female celebrities of those times, such as Bridgette Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and Romy Schneider, were spotted wearing these shoes, which sparked off their popularity. The mass media entitled them ‘the New Cinderella Slipper’ and they have deservedly earned their place in the shoe hall of fame.

Being comfortable enough to wear during the day and sophisticated enough to wear out at night, these two-tone shoes got the high appraisal of fashion editors, socialites and street style elite, since the two-part design of these shoes creates a flattering effect that shortens the foot but lengthens the leg.

It is never wrong to go back to classics, so various designers regularly attempt to rethink the concept of a cap toe shoe. The cap toe itself can have several style variations: black or white, nude, metal cap toes, patent cap toes and so on. Here are some of our favorite celebrities showing off this trend:
