Betting on the somewhat erroneous assumption that everyone wants to become low-watt versions of Chuck Bass, the Miami-based Del Toro Slipper Company just released a new look book.
The company was founded by three fresh-faced University of Miami kids with one dream...
"..We badly wanted a pair of velvet shoes with our school emblem on them. To think, we could be smoking our senior cigars in our boarding school slippers."
To think, indeed!
Once an accessory relegated to Hugh Hefner and Agatha Christie novels, velvet slippers are now being worn by the likes of Kristian Laliberte and Paul Johnson Calderon (whose favorite pair is adorned with a marijuana leaf emblem).
So maybe these start-ups from Miami are on to something. But I think their lookbook, while thoroughly entertaining, might need a little work.
And, lest anyone think that the mere donning of velvet slippers isn't fruity enough...
