Square on the heels; triangle on the toes. The translucent finish on the side bridges the suede texture on the pointy toe box and the glossy heel at the box and provides secure support for the feet. The top piece is made out of wood, and the outer sole is carefully layered with a thin sheet of high-quality rubber. The insole is equally dealt with the same material but finished with fine synthetic leather. It's a good thing because it makes your legs appear longer and your feet slimmer, giving way for them to shine.
