Fashion Trivia

Toward the latter part of the fifteenth century, men’s footwear had a square tip resembling a duck’s beak, a fashion trend started by Charles VIII to hide the deformity of one of his feet, which had an extra toe.

I own a couple of pair of shoes with square tips; they're very comfortable because they don't squish my toes like my stilettoes do.=)
