Salvatore Ferragamo's 2021 F-heel follows the curved heel of the original once created by the brand's founding father. The unique shape of the heel creates the impression that the wearer's foot is flying through the air.
In the new collection, the heel is crafted from nappa leather in two high-gloss heels: Hedren Green and Technicolor Yellow. The third piece is crafted from black nappa leather with mother-of-pearl beads.
Upper, lining, hem, outsole and rubber heel instep are available in either a single Technicolor color or black. Despite the revolutionary shape, experienced Ferragamo craftsmen fasten the F heels seamlessly using a single piece of nappa leather: this requires a crimping process that is repeated up to 12 times to ensure a perfect fit.
