Salvatore Ferragamo‘s Vara Block Heel Pumps are one of his most iconic designs as they are both classic and timeless. They would make a great shoe for work as the 1,5″ block heel is both comfortable and manageable in height. The eyecatcher and most iconic signature detail is, of course, the adorable double bow on the vamp of this pump; it’s subtle yet feminine. The Vara comes in an array of different colors, finishes and variations with the patent version running up to $575. If you can afford to invest in a pair of classic designer shoes, these would be a great purchase. But if you can’t, keep on reading because we’ve found lovely look for less options for you that are just as stylish as the Salvatore Ferragamos.

Cole Haan Tali Bow Pumps
My personal favorite are these gorgeous block heel pumps by Cole Haan! When I first saw them, they instantly reminded me of the Salvatore Ferragamo Vara shoes. The heel on these is a little higher and the bow is slightly different as well, but the overall look still matches the Salvatore Ferragamo real deal, wouldn’t you agree? The Cole Haan’s Tali is also available in a variety of heel heights, colors and shoe styles (including a ballerina and a loafer version) which I think are all absolutely to die for! The retail price on these is $150, but they can be found on sale for less at a bunch of different online retailers.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Caroline Bow Mid Pumps
Another great look for less option would be these block heel bow pumps by MICHAEL Michael Kors. Block-heel pump design? Check. Double bow? Check. Budget-friendly price? Double check! Plus, they also come in many different colors and finishes. Personally, I love the nude version the most. Such a versatile shoe!
