Reimagined from Salvatore Ferragamo’s iconic 1940s creation, the Italian-made shoe – in slingback and sandal form – features a sculptured 8.5cm heel, and is dubbed “modern art for your feet”. Made from Nappa leather and with a curved, V-shaped front Ferragamo’s F-Heel is one of the coolest looks of the season, and comes in a closed-toed slingback (in optic white and black), and as an open-toe, the F-Heel Sandal (yellow).
Below, GRAZIA’s fashion director Aileen Marr takes you through five ways to style the F-Heel.

The F-Heel looks great with tailored trousers, or on-trend fitted pants with an ankle slit. “It’s about the wide-leg at the moment but at the same time, everyone is still wearing the split pant,”Marr. “So they’d suit (the F-Heel) because you’ll be able to see a bit of the heel and from the front, you’ll be able to see the V-shape. It’s a slingback, so it’s a lighter look (with pants) than a boot or a full pump.”
For a more sophisticated take on the spring/summer suit, pair the F-Heel and structured shorts with a blazer. “You could wear it with a shorts suit – shorts and a blazer. For a summer look, I’d be leaning towards the white,”Marr. “White, as much as it’s not always practical, it’s so chic and it works with anything. It lightens up an outfit. Black tends to be more classic – it will be forever in your wardrobe. People go to black but I think white is the new neutral.”
Marr suggests coordinating the open-toed F-Sandal in yellow – or the classic F-heel in white – with breezy summer denim. “I would wear the mule for sure – fringed denim with a wide-leg,”Marr. “The white would be nice with skirts or dresses, something shorter. It elevates the length of your leg: a slingback that’s cut like that is elegant on the ankle.”

MAKE A STATEMENT
Marr says Ferragamo’s yellow leather is “the colour of the moment”This can give your outfit a personal touch. “It can work with everything,”She said. “It’s so flexible in the sense that, if you’ve got something quite neutral, you put these heels on (in yellow) and you’ve got your accent. The open toe is great for moving into spring and summer, with a pedi.”
DAY TO NIGHT
The versatile F-Heel or F-Sandal can be worn for professional looks (think: office reopening), as well as Friday night drinks. “From daytime to evening, these are elegant and have that statement heel – as we’ve just seen from the runways (at fashion week), it’s still about the heel. Like the Ferragamo runway, try it the slingback with a sock,”Marr suggests.
