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.
You’ve heard the saying: Judge a man by his shoes. Well, the wingtips in this sale are guaranteed to put you in good standing. Choose from classic polished leather or suede options from brands like Gordon Rush, Paul Smith, Del Toro, and more.
The velvet slipper has become a fashion must-have and Del Toro has been at the forefront of its resurgence. This sale features everything from formal slippers to suede oxfords to add a pop of personality to any look, whether you’re keeping it casual or gunning for a timeless formal style.
