2. Square-Toe Sandals

This sandal trend might be a bit niche, but once you spot it, you’ll notice it in plenty of new-in sections. Several pairs of sandals even look like the front of the toes have been cut off (but we love a strong square toe).

5. Toe-Thong Sandals

Toe-thong sandals might be divisive, but for the second year in a row, lots of minimalistic leather sandals have a strap across the big toe. Just make sure you don’t leave your big toenails too chipped.
