Once a fashion anachronism, the velvet shoe — also known as the Prince Albert slipper — has come into its own as a casualwear must-have. Matthew Chevallard and his team at Del Toro are partly to thank for that turn of events. Based in Miami, Del Toro turns out men’s and women’s velvet shoes featuring every design imaginable — from edgy-cool embroidered skulls and crossbones to metal studs, camouflage prints, red stars, and polka dots. If you still regard velvet shoes as something only your wealthy cigar-smoking uncle should wear, have no fear: Del Toro produces all the wingtips, sneakers, espadrilles and boots your heart could ever desire, in luxe suede and leather as well as reflective 3M and water-repellant Sunbrella. Every design reflects Chevallard’s effortless fusion of NYC street style and Italian refinement.
