By 1620, the rounded shape of the previous period had given way to a square toe. This shape dominated the entire period. The shoes became more thick and sensible, particularly during the war years.
The large open sides seen on earlier shoes also became less popular during the war. Military shoes were, of course, completely closed.
A few pointed toes were seen in the 1620’s and 30’s and were favoured, rather unexpectedly, by the Puritans.
