Split Toe Shoe (n.)
A type of dress shoe that has a distinguishable seam either fully or partially from the tip to the throat.
The shoe looks “split” because the vamp is made from two pieces of material and is sewn together.
If the shoe has a partial split, then the seam will start at the tip and run until the toe cap.
Split toe shoes are less formal than balmorals, but are accepted as a part of the normal daily business outfit.
