One scroll through Instagram and it’s clear to see: Square-toed sandals are everywhere. Whether they’re worn with bike shorts and crop tops, with cute summer dresses, or a slung on with a pair of worn-in jeans, there’s no denying that the unique silhouette instantly elevates any outfit. Of course, if you don’t have any in your closet, you might not know this just yet. In fact, you may even find that the geometric design is a bit out of your comfort zone. Alas, you’ll never know if you don’t try them firsthand.

For that reason, we’ve scoured the web for 10 of our favorite square-toed sandals. Ahead you’ll find a variety of neutral and bold shades, each of which could very easily become the stylish staple in your closet that you never knew you were missing.
