Paul Andrew Resurrects Salvatore Ferragamo’s Iconic F Heel for His First Collection at the Brand

With archives as rich as this Florentine/Los Angeles house, Salvatore Ferragamo’s new design director for women’s shoes Paul Andrew wisely did his research. The iconic F heel, a cut-out wedge feat of ergonomics, was introduced in 1947. Since then, it has influenced Giuseppe Zanetti and Manolo Blahnik. Andrew’s was the sleekest iteration yet, in black with a gold heel, which complemented the minimalist clothing by fellow new designer Fulvio Rigoni.

Elsewhere, Andrew took on the season’s high-fashion hiker trend, with a heeled and croc embossed version and a V-vamp style as well. But the F heels were the most A+.
