Word of the Week: Cap Toe Shoe

Womens Niki



Also known as a tip, a cap toe is an additional piece of leather covering the toe of a shoe. May be in several different shapes or patterns.

Some styles never classics.  People reinvent them and adapt them to modern times.  Perhaps it was the brainchild of Coco, with her sportif flair, but the cap toe shoe is indeed a classic and therefore a wardrobe staple.  While a pair of Chanels is the all time cap toe investment, this season there are funkier versions. Which strikes your fancy?
