The Heel Is 1 ¼ Inches Tall
From the Crispyarchives at this time I’ve one dedicated only for my female readers. The “Vara” mannequin first came out in 1978 and it was created by Salvatore oldest daughter Fiamma Ferragamo.

Comfort was the precedence when designing this model it took a few seasons to get the right shape. The shoe was given a low heel and spherical toe. The heel is 1 ¼ inches tall. The bow goes by means of a small gold plaque bearing Salvatore Ferragamo logo. The design of the shoe was accidental. The prototype had a bow made from a larciano derby ferragamo strip of grosgrain which was presupposed larciano derby ferragamo to be leather. The modeler misunderstood this and saved the grosgrain bow for the final mannequin. Good thing that the modeler made this inference trigger it appears better with grosgrain. Coming from a man viewpoint the shoe has been very fashionable with women because of its minimalist design. It does not have an excessive amount of of something each detail is well proportioned.
