Sartorial Footwear – The New Slipper Company to Watch Out For!

The slipper shape/pattern is definitely among my all time favorite looks.

Del Toro Shoes

There are always misconceptions in fashion where it is said that certain articles of clothing/shoes/accessories should or should not be worn, or should only be worn here or there or then and not now. This is all bullshit!! You should wear what the hell you want, when you want and however you want to so long as you do it well, look presentable and maintain confidence. Rules are meant to be broken.
