The 2016 NBA Draft was full of eye-catching style moments. This year’s draft class pulled out all the sartorial stops in order to look sharp, make statements and get noticed. A few of the most dapper attendees chose to rock Del Toro slippers on Draft Night.

Fresh off the bus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, the first Del Toro sighting was on the feet of San Antonio’s first round pick Dejounte Murray. Dejounte chose to represent his Alma Mater – The University of Washington – by wearing a pair of purple Del Toro slippers. He opted for a quilted velvet pair, which combined well with his subtle purple jacket.
