May 2021 Update: Whoa! I’ve never seen these classic low heel pumps — a reader favorite! — on sale at Nordstrom — there are select colors as low as $417.
When I started the blog years ago, one of the first things I learned from readers was about some great brands for comfortable heels — I already knew about Cole Haan, but it was through discussions here that I discovered Stuart Weitzman and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Ferragamo has higher, sleeker heels, but these low Vara pumps continue to be classics (as do the Varina flats). Every year they come out in a ton of neutrals as well as colors, and they have that preppy, “old money” kind of look about them. They’re $575 at full price, and as luxury items there are limited ways you can get a discount on them. (The main one that comes to mind is opening a store credit card for the “get 20% off ANY purchase!” discount.)
Another way is to get them through the yearly ShopBop sale, which, as mentioned yesterday, is on right now through April 14. They still have sizes 4–11 left in the basic black, and with code EVENT18 they come down to $431. Nice. Vara Low Heel Pumps
2018 Update: These low heel pumps have been around for years and years, in a zillion colors, and people still LOVE them, so we’re adding them to our Workwear Hall of Fame! You can find them at Nordstrom, Zappos, Neiman Marcus and others, including (as noted above), ShopBop.
