Ferragamo is known for his classic Vara shoes. Even if you don’t know the shoe by name, chances are you’ve seen a photo of a celebrity wearing the shoes on the red carpet (or on a coffee run). Current fans include Anne Hathaway, Emma Roberts and Carey Mulligan. If that doesn’t impress you, Marilyn Monroe and Margaret Thatcher were also fans of the mid-heel Vara—which is testament to how universality of the shoes.

In honor of the Vara’s 35th anniversary, Ferragamo is letting you customize your very own version the shoes. First, pick from 2 different styles: the Vara, which features a heel, and the Varina, a ballet flat. Then, you can pretty much customize every part of the shoe, from the bow color to the hardware. You can even get your initials engraved on a little metal plaque that goes on the back of the shoe.

Overwhelmed by all the options? Check out for inspiration. The site features photographs and videos of the It-girls, such as Olivia Palermo and Lily Aldridge, wearing their favorite versions of Ferragamo’s Vara or Varina. The shoes cost $550, which is a steal considering they’ll never go out of style and you can custom them exactly to your tastes. Click below to start designing your own pair now.
