... as they were known in my youth:

Peek-toe shoes

Peep-toe shoes

Show-toe shoes

Toe-cleavage shoes

As far as I can tell, nobody uses "open-toed" anymore. But I don't get
around much.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
