The name Bernie Mev is known for being the master of woven footwear. Bernie Mev started out in the 1960s with his original factory located in the Bronx. At that time he was making shoes for all the big department stores and major retailers. In 2000, Bernie met his match, a man named Itamar Carmi who was as fresh and energetic as Bernie. Itamar owned Medici Shoe Stores, a privately owned retail business with five locations in the New York area that specialized in imported Italian labels. When Bernie and Itamar came together they soon produced shoes in accordance with their shared high standards of excellence. Itamar quickly brought a vision of his to life; it was a groundbreaking technology in the form of an expandable, handwoven memory foam footbed. It included innovative color combinations and patterns in a wide array of shoe styles from high wedges to ballerina flats. Bernie Mev footwear is taking the shoe industry by storm with its unique designs and extremely comfortable shoes. Itamar and his wife personally choose all of the fabrics and design all of the patterns. The rest of the recipe includes a hands-on management style, a great office staff, and a crackerjack team of sales associates. “We have designed a whole new line for our 2014 collection,” said Rachel Carmi. “It's definitely Bernie Mev at its best.” Every woman needs a pair of Mevs in her closet!

I purchased the "Bronze" but the description did not say "reflective" or "shimmer", as 2 other choices stated. This Bronze is definitely a metallic/"shimmer" color. NOT what I wanted. Bronze does not automatically indicate a shimmer. There is a pewter option and a pewter "reflective" option. Sadly returning them. It's amazing what a proper description will do for business. I'd love to order the pewter, but I'm concerned about what I'll get.

These shoes are shockingly way more comfy than I thought they would be. They feel like I’m walking on clouds. The straps are stretchy and just right. Not to snug and not too loose. The style is different and interesting but still classy and not weird. These are amazing.

Super cute shoe and have received compliments wearing them. I'm on my feet all day in a medical office and struggle to find a shoe that is comfortable and stylish. These were comfortable all day on the first day. I like that they give me a little height as well, while still being comfortable. I wear a 7-7.5 normally, and tried this shoe in a 38 and a 39. The 39 was too big, but the 38 felt a little snug, especially over my toes. These were my first pair of bernie mevs so maybe with the stretchy woven material that is how they are supposed to fit. As I mentioned, I wore them that way right out of the box and my feet felt fine at the end of the day.

I bought a pair of Bernie mev for winter in black, so I had to try these. After wearing a few times, I am glad I did. The comfort is great with excellent arch support. I like to have a shoe that covers all my feet when walking and traveling, and these fit the bill.

These are great casual shoes. I had to order up 1/2 size from normal. The ankle seems to run a little large, and I don't have small ankles. I hope that it doesn't stretch out, or it will look sloppy.

I love these! I think the size conversions are inaccurate though. I used to wear a 38, when I was a US size 6.5/7. My feet are larger after having children and I wear an 8.5 wide in Clark’s and Frye’s. I wear a Bernie Mev size 40. Zappos says that’s a US size 10, but I would never be able to wear a 10! These are so comfortable! I love love these shoes and they fit my moderately wide foot. They don’t slip and the tennis shoe like bottom has just enough cushion for all day comfort.

Cute shoes. I have a couple pairs of other bernie mev shoes and totally love them. The Margo shoe is cute and I do love the color. I bought them to wear as an every day shoe to go on errands, etc. They look good with jeans and are really flexible and the reason I only gave them a 4 star is the left shoe rubs the tops of my toes. Maybe after wearing them awhile the elastic woven fiber will soften up a bit. Will update this review after a couple of weeks.

Fit was good, though a bit snug across the top - but seems like it would be ok given stretch that the weave provides. They are super comfortable, and cute, and I was tempted to keep them - however, the plastic sole slips very easily and in the end, I felt like they slipped around too much so decided to return.

These super cute shoes have very mild arch support... very mild. Returned because for some reason they make my toes reddish - just unappealing on my particular feet. Darling shoes!

I normally wear an 8.5 or 9, so on the advice of other reviewers, ordered a 10. Still too short and a little too tight in the toe bed (bunion). I like the shoe though - looks like it would wear well, I ordered a black and it's true black, well made.

Instant comfort! Love them for that reason alone. Not sure if I love there looks but as I say the comfort counts big.

I’m hoping it will be a good shoe for walking in cities while on vacation. I ordered a size up because Bernie Mev runs small.

I have a really wide foot and high instep and shoe shopping is always a challenge. I have other bernie men shoes and I've always found them to fit well. This particular shoe felt smaller and not quite right for me tough-to-fit foot. Great shoe - just not right for me.

I wear a 6.5, normally would buy 7 for boots. But I had to go up 2 sizes to fit comfortably, I ended up with a size 9... which is a first for me.. so weird. But I ended up keeping the 9 because of the style and because it finally fit.

Very comfortable. Light gold is a pretty neutral color and goes with most things. The sole is a bright white and would look better in a cream color. I’m a size 8 and ordered a size 38. It’s a bit tight at the toe but know it will stretch. This is my 3rd pair of Bernie Mev’s!

Poorly constructed. Insoles did not reach to the end of the shoe leaving your big toes hanging uncomfortably over the ridge. The inner seam across the top of the foot on one shoe was rough while the other was smooth and fine. Glue visible on one the toe on one the shoes. Great style, wanted to love but just not made well at all.

I know Bernie Mev's run small so I ordered a size larger and that worked. I really like the style and comfort of the shoe but I am a young 72 and was afraid the soles might be too slippery, so I am returning them. I do love Mev's though. I must have 10 pairs and all are super comfortable and always get me compliments. I'd keep these if I were not afraid of slipping in them.

I normally wear 8.5-9. I like my toes to feel free and mobile in my shoes. I first ordered 40 and it felt like the shoe didn't have enough surface area for the bottom of my foot, and the toes were too tight. I ended up ordering the 41. It fits almost perfect. I have one foot ever so slightly longer and when I first put them on I notice that the toe feels a little tight but I walked around Mexico city in these shoes for 7 days and even did a moderate hike and the worked really well. No arch support really but I am used to that so it was not a problem. Also these are really cute! I wanted something cute to go with everything (pants or dress), fairly low profile and light weight (for traveling) and comfortable and these did the trick.

In the silver/ rose gold I ordered a 42 (women's 12). n They are absolutely no larger than a women's 10, if that! Why are these not made in accordance with American sizing? Going back.

These are very cute sandals. Sadly, these were too tight for my wide foot. Returning.

Best to buy one size larger. I’m usually a size 9, but those (38s) crunched my toes. The size 10, (40), felt much better.

I have wide feet and was surprised that these fit the wide part of my foot well. Unfortunately, the heel is likely wide too since my heels slip out with every step. Wish they worked because super cute!
