I really like cap-toe shoes for fall/winter. It makes a plain shoe less boring, but not to gaudy. It's what a sexy, impractical construction worker would wear! I think they look best on flats and those bedroom loafer style shoes. I like things that keep it simple, but still make an impact. These shoes don't need 400,000 studs and spikes on them to look good; they know how to accessorize!
