25 years of style. Ferragamo shoes are the best in style, comfort and durability. I have this style in black, violet, snakeskin, navy and beige. I'm hoping to get the other colors. My shoes are more than 25 years and the style never fades. I feel confident whenever I wear my Ferragamos.

I've wanted a pair of Ferragamo shoes for years. I finally gave in and bought the classic Vara low heel pump. I love everything about this shoe. It's so classy and beautiful. Even though it is sophisticated and elegant it can be worn dressy or casual. I also love Zappos.com and their customer service can't be beat. Fantastic company.

Brands I'd also recommend: don't have any choices at this time

I bought myself these shoes for my birthday because I've always wondered whether the expensive shoes are really worth the money. They're a classic style that I'll wear for years (assuming the heel doesn't stretch too far as most do). I like them, but I don't think they're worth the hype or the price.

Beautifully crafted shoes. What a pleasure to have a fine Italian shoe! Top quality leather and exquisite craftsmanship. I wore this same SF style a long time ago and the shoes lasted for years, so I wanted another pair. They are very comfortable, and good for walking because of the low heel. They look great with either suit pants or skirts. The style with the almond-shaped toe and grosgrain bow is very flattering to the foot. The fit is a little loose, maybe due to the European sizing? If you want an American size 8, sometimes the Euro size converts to 7.5-8.0 but sometimes 8.0-8.5. I think this shoe is 8.0-8.5. The shoe does not slip off the back of my foot, but you can see a gap between my heel and the back of the shoe. I am experimenting with insoles to get a more snug fit. By the way, the color they call "Nero" is black.

A great classic shoe. Extremely comfortable, based on the old walking shoe model. I have lots of trouble with foot pain and these are marvelously comfortable.

Have worn this style for over 20 years! Sadly, not readily available in 11N or 11 1/2 AAA anymore in colors! Hope Zappos gets many more colours in these sizes! Comfortable walking and subway shoe yet beautiful for day and evening! Hope the company can get it's identity back and give up production of ugly platform stilettos!Need this functional workhorse shoe in narrow sizes above size 10!

Ferragamo Vara. What can I say? My mom has these exact same shoes she bought in Italy in the 1970s. They never go out of style and are always right. Still the best.

I've been wearing this style for many years, and it was finally time to retire my last pair and buy a new one. Unfortunately, for Ferragamo lovers, this old time favorite has changed, and not necessarily for the better. First, instead of the bright brass buckle on the bow, there is now a wishy-washy brushed metal that looks gold in some lights, silver in others. Second, the sole is now black, which I thought would be a good thing, but the black wears off as soon as you walk around on sidewalks. (Also the wear pattern is suspicious--two perfect circles about 1/2 inch in diameter on one shoe; one near the toe and the other under the ball of the foot.) They are still stylish, but no longer get my five stars. I miss the original & will look for something else in the future.

This is a lovely well made shoe, very classy. However, I find that Ferragamo shoes run at least a half size too long and are generally too narrow. I usually wear a 6.5 B or C. I ordered a C width and the shoe was still too narrow and bulged at the bend. I'm going to try a size 6 D. I like the fact that returns are simplified.

These shoes are unbelievably comfortable. It is usually so hard to find cute shoes for small and wide feet but these are them! This is my second pair of Ferragamos and they are totally worth the investment. My other pair (black patent) still look brand new even thought they are three years old and I wear them at least once a week! I will definitely stock up when more colors go on sale!

These are gorgeous classy shoes. They elevate everything you wear. I do prefer the look of the patent leather ones such as these over the regular leather ones, which can verge on frumpy in the dark colors. The sizing is right on and the foot feels very comfortable with the little heel. I docked a star for comfort because the patent finish takes longer to mold to your feet, but that is true of any brand.

I love, love, love these shoes. They sparkle and make me happy when I wear them and add just a little pizazz to my outfit. Fit well. Look professional but perky.

Ferragamo shoes are my #1 choice for so many years now, business or pleasure! My husband wears only Ferragamo too. You are getting great value & style. I have Vara in 4 colors.

I absolutely love these shoes. They are professional for the workplace but still stylish. I love that you can easily wear them with dresses, skirts, and pants. The leather quality is excellent. It's a pricey investment, but well worth it.

Great shoe, I actually went out shopping in it, I did a lot of walking and it was very comfortable for the first few hours. I eventually started to feel a little sore in my toes, but overall it's way more comfortable than I expected. Not to mention it is gorgeous!

I waited a long time to get these. Of course with Zappos once the decision was made, they arrived overnight; and I found them to be sexier than I had imagined - beautiful. I hope the toe box loosens up a little with wear - just a tad tight. Right now these are "one-meeting" shoes but soon (I hope) they'll be "all day every day." Vara's look great with every classic outfit.

Much narrower than stated - the D is more like a C. Had thought bow was leather, is ribbon so won't last as long.
