Review and Tips:

  • Salvatorre Ferragamo ‘Vara’ Pump in ‘Black Calf’
  • These have more support than a flat, but are much more comfortable than a pump. Best of both worlds!
  • They come in four widths: 2A{narrow}=N, B{medium}=M, C{wide}=W, D{extra wide}=WW
  • I have them in two sizes I picked up thrifting: 8.5 2A and a 7.5 B. I normally wear a size 8, and both the larger-size/narrow-width and smaller-size/normal-width fit me. The 8.5 is better if I know I’ll be doing a lot of walking or dancing, when feet can swell a bit.
  • I wear mine year-round for work events and weddings and always pack them on trips, instead of separate pairs of heels and flats. They’re also bicycle-friendly!
  • These also come in patent leather and suede, and in nude, navy, pink, red, and brown.
