The last time I checked in with Matthew Chevellard he was combing the Miami club scene in the wee hours of the morning. He knows how to play. He also knows how to work. More importantly, when to work. For the past six months he’s been toiling to move the production of his Del Toro Prince Albert slippers from China to Spain. It has proved to be well worth the sweat. Chevellard adds a signature red grosgrain ribbon to the heel, enlists world class craftsmanship and upgrades the piping, velvet and soles to produce a slipper he truly stands behind—or in, rather.
Del Toro Monogrammed Navy Velvet Slipper* ($295)
Though Del Toro’s shoes are crafted just outside of Madrid, Spain, custom monogrammed pairs like mine are embroidered in south Florida over a span of two to three months. The slippers run true to size and will serve as an ice breaker at every holiday party you drop by this season.
