A dress shoe for special occasions such as weddings or proms. Formal shoes are typically made from more delicate materials, such as patent leather, peau de soie, satin, or silk. Formal shoes often feature a plain toe for a more conservative, polished look.
About Open Toe:
Open toe describes a shoe, especially a sandal, which is not closed at the front, allowing the toes to be seen. Some open toe styles, such as peep toe pumps, have an enclosed vamp with a small opening at the toe, which make them more suitable for formal wear during warmer weather.
