DEL TORO STORY
Del Toro is a luxury lifestyle brand based out of Miami, Florida. Originally a men’s brand, Del Toro now produces shoes and accessories for both men and women. Matthew Chevallard, President and Creative Director of the brand, was born in Torino, Italy. Del Toro was founded in 2005 and originally sought to fill a void in the marketplace for affordable customized velvet slippers.
Through this success, the collection evolved to include new styles such as wingtips, chukkas, sneakers, drivers and espadrilles. Del Toro prides itself on offering a fresh take on classic silhouettes. All products are hand made on the Adriatic Coast of Italy, and are constructed of the finest Nappa leathers, suede, and velvets. Chevallard insists that his designs cater to “grown up sneaker heads.” He infuses his own personal style into every detail of his designs, which is evident in the unique details and compelling color combinations found throughout the collections.
Inspiration for the brand is drawn from a combination of Matthew’s Italian heritage, a Palm Beach prep aesthetic from his childhood, and edgy New York and Japanese street style. Del Toro offers an array of products for people who are seeking refined contemporary footwear and accessories.
The Del Toro lifestyle is emulated by the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Miami. Del Toro continues to grow and expand its offerings while maintaining the quality and aesthetics of handmade Italian products.
