News from Del Toro
I am inadvertently shilling for Del Toro once again, but during the past week I received 2 emails I thought I'd share. This is an unpaid, unsolicited plug, presented only because I like mine, a lot.
Email #1 In which they sound as if they want to be an alternative to Belgians
DEL TORO SHOES INTRODUCING GREAT VARIETY OF CUSTOM OPTIONS
Miami Beach, FL. (October 5, 2010) Del Toro shoes are offering yet more options for designing your dream loafer. In a month you will be able to have Del Toros in velvet, leather, suede or linen and pick the color of the trim. The company offers diverse embroidery options but also gives their customers a possibility of designing a unique pair of shoes by uploading a picture of their favorite pet or a family crest, for example.
The shoes are available exclusively online at www.deltoroshoes.com. Prices range from $195 for the simple loafer to $295 for the fully customized embroidery. Del Toro will have your pair handmade outside of Madrid, Spain and delivered within two months.
Email 2 from Matt the Prez, with a great inducement for the ladies
