6 PM In SoHo. We Hung With NBA Star Draymond Green At Del Toro’s Pop Up in NYC.

Every part of New York City is a labyrinth that is not only it’s own grid on an actual map, but it’s own world inside a world. For long as I’ve spent in The City, I am still discovering new versions of it. Tonight, I was going to see my city through the lens of one of my favorite brands in a whole new way. This is Del Toro’s NYC. If you’re not from here, you probably think all of NYC is Times Square, or more recently, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Where dudes on unicycles host Mumford & Sons look-a-like contests at conflict free coffee joints the way Nathan’s hosts hotdog eating contests. There’s far more in The Apple than that. The Village, SoHo, NoHo, The Bowery, St. Mark’s Place, Lower East Side, Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea – these are the parts that had my heart from a young age. There’s a creative…

The Top 5 Killer Del Toro Drops For Fall

We just wrote a full bio and intro on the homie Matthew  Chevallard. He took the concept, and embodiment of that luxe hotel Southbeach/Europe class leisure, and mixed it with some fresh ass SOHO vs LA fuck-the-corporate-streetwear shit. It’s a sartorial, high brow cultural middle finger steeze. And it’s rad as shit and just what the good doctor ordered. BURGUNDY MOROCCO HIGHTOP CHUKKA Burgundy Bottalato Leather high tops are inspired by the super hip Mediterranean nation. The motif of Camels and abstract design icons, a fresh white Margum sole, and signature Toro heel tab are leather lined, hand made right across the Med in Italy, and would be ideal for a navy blue suit. Cous Cous on these haters. BLACK VELVET CANDY SKULL SLIPPERS Day of the dead kill it in these hotel slippers that could only exist in a resort El Chapo owns and brunch is snorted,…

Del Toro Is The Hippest Luxe Footwear Designer On Earth. Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You.

Del Toro is the luxury lifestyle brand based out of Miami, Florida that we at Wanderset feel you need to discover. It’s not that they’re making everything from luxe slippers with skulls and crossbones, to red quilted high tops – it’s that it all works. It’s not a reach, or far fetched, and it doesn’t come across as a “do too much to be niche” rookie brand. Del Toro is not still feeling itself out, it knows who it is, and it’s unapologetically sarcastic, and sartorial. The brand’s character is equally European luxury, South Beach party posh, New England Ivy League, and NYLONKONG street rebellious. At the same damn time.  Originally a men’s brand, Del Toro now produces shoes and accessories for both men and women. Del Toro was founded in 2005 and originally sought to fill a void in the marketplace for affordable customized velvet slippers. Through this success,…
