Toebox

The toebox is the portion of the forepart of the shoe that covers the toes.  It is the roofed area over and around the front part of the shoe that protects the toes.  The function of the toe box is to retain the shape of the forefoot and allow room for toes.  The height and width of the toe box is dictated by shape of the last used to construct the shoe. Certain types of non-athletic and athletic footgear will offer extra depth in the toe box.
