Some of the greatest ideas come from having no money and wanting something really badly. The founders of Del Toro Shoes were in this exact position years ago, when they decided they wanted pairs of velvet shoes with their boarding school’s emblem on them to commemorate their graduation. After a bit of research, they found that they would have to shell out around $900 dollars to get what they were looking for. It was then that their shoe company was born.
Del Toro offers handmade shoes at a lower price then their competitors without skimping on quality. The company makes a variety of shoes, from slippers and driving shoes, to sneakers, espadrilles, and wingtips. Slippers are where Del Toro really shines. Whether you’re looking for a refined, classic slipper, like the Men’s Classic, or something that stands out, such as the Light Blue Linen Slipper, chances are you’ll find it at their website. You’ll find prices starting in the $170′s for certain shoes, but many range from $300 – $525.
If you’d prefer something personalized, a pair of custom slippers from Del Toro Shoes may tickle your fancy. Select the perfect material and color combination, and upload a design you’d like embroidered on them. Custom slippers start at a sweet $425, but that’s still less than you can get a handmade slipper made to your specifications most anywhere else.
Still not convinced? Gents like Dwayne Wade and Theophilus London are collaborating with them and our favorite stylish husky writer, Corbin Chamberlin loves Del Toro Shoes. If you’re considering a pair of slippers, drivers, or espadrilles, consider Del Toro, with sizes to 13.5.
