They have wide toes which is what I always need in a shoe. Pointy toes (like on converse, or court shoes!) look ugly on me because I have really big feet, so I end up looking like I'm wearing two canoes. But wide-toed shoes like rocket dogs and keens make my feet look smaller.
Depends on your taste doesn't it. btw I'm 41 so you're kind of right (though I'm not convinced I look trendy. I "have my own style" as some people have politely said).
I used to have two pairs of rocket dogs which were the fugliest, clumpiest horrors. This was early 2000s when I was young! However I also had a gorgeous pair of ballet flats with embroidered chinese dragons on which were lush and very dainty. So they are not all fugly and clumpy.
