Custom soles

Custom soles

Add your personal touch to Italian brand Salvatore Ferragamo's famous Vara (3cm heel) and Varina flats.

The brand has launched a customisation service, which allows customers to choose from 10 base colours, more than 15 bows, silver or gold hardware, and three initials plated on the sole.

The service costs $990 for the made-to-order Varina and $1,090 for the Vara. It is available at selected stores, including 01-40 Paragon and B1-18 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Allow eight to 12 weeks.

Want to learn more about shoemaking? A Salvatore Ferragamo craftsman will be at Takashimaya Department Store today and Paragon tomorrow for a demonstration at the boutique from 11am to 8pm.
