Marni's Latest "Ugly" Shoe Trend Is a Polarizing One

While Oscar buzz was reaching its peak this weekend, an important fashion torch officially passed over in Milan. With Consuelo Castiglioni having stepped down just a few months ago, Marni presented its first runway show under the new direction of Francesco Risso. And true to Marni’s iconic offerings of floral motifs and pretty/ugly design, there were a few daring trends from the collection that are sure to polarize its fans during this new chapter for the brand, as well.

While Risso filled his pieces with bold colors and avant guarde shapes, with think one particular shoe silhouette will really divide the masses: the square-toed boot. In its latest iteration for Marni, the trend is made dramatic with an extra-wide and sharp square toe box.

In all, it's a shoe that might make for a nice complement to a more classically feminine outfit—as seen on the runway—or could be perfect for anyone looking for a more experimental footwear shape. But either way, we know this look will have people choosing a side: the yays or the nays.
