Camo Brogues? Raffia Slippers? This Cult Shoe Line Has 'Em All

We're going into the weekend on a trippy, colorful note inspired by Miami's own shoe brand Del Toro, which has amassed a cult following from fashion editors and buyers alike. The spring '12 lookbook could serve as a manual for showing waspy-punk inspired females and fellas how to pull together a dapper, fresh look that paints outside the lines of the yawn-worthy norm. Of course, the signature Del Toro Prince Albert Slipper Loafer is still in the mix, but—yes!—available in even a more colorful mix of bright solids and fun patterns like leopard, zebra, military chic camo, and raffia. But, even more exciting, the line is clearly expanding from just slippers—hello bold wingtips. And they look like they'd be the spike to the proverbial punch at any party, if founder and designer Matthew Chevallard and his gang, lounging like a Tommy Hilfiger ad on chronic in these snaps, are anything to go by. We'll take a (velvet) hit.
