Del Toro Highlights its Handmade Italian Footwear Production
Sure, your new loafers are cool and all, but chances are they weren’t made with the kind of nurturing care with which Del Toro makes theirs.

Watching the shoemaker cradle the shoe from start to finish, it becomes readily apparent to the viewer that there’s a certain pride in construction with Del Toro’s shoes. There is an art in ignoring the conveyer-belt route to production, which is evidenced here.
