The story of DEL TORO begins with founder Matthew Chevallard. Matthew was born in Torino, Italy and the label’s original focus was men’s shoes. Chevallard started the company in 2005 to fill a void in the marketplace for affordable customized velvet slippers.
After the company’s initial success DEL TORO expanded into other shoe silhouettes such as wingtips, chukkas, drivers and espadrilles. Each style is handmade in Torino, Italy and according to Mr. Chevallard caters to “grown-up sneakerheads” This group loves silhouettes that are classical and made out of the finest luxury materials.
DEL TORO is one of the few labels that produce stylish shoes for men as well as women and I cannot wait to show all of you their men’s collection. For now their women’s styles will have to do and I know you will enjoy them.
