This is such a cute shoe but I was in between sizes and ended up with the larger one, which is actually a terrible fit. The strap sort of stands out from my foot and I have to grip my toes to keep the shoes on. Wishing I had kept the smaller ones and pretty sure too late to return! Ugh. But they really go with everything and are such a darling style.

Love these shoes. I get lots of compliments. Beware though, they have no traction and the bottom is very slippery. I have almost eaten it a couple times in these shoes.

These are my perfect sandals. Can be dressed down and worn with jeans and shorts or dressed up and worn with all sorts of skirts and dresses. These were my go-to sandals last summer and I wore them so much the bottom half of the soles started to rub through, which I had replaced easily. I live in Washington DC so I walk a lot during the summer, these were very comfortable for all lengths of walks and not at all slippery. Definitely go for these, you won't regret it! I'm thinking about grabbing up another pair!

Great shoes, own two pair! Comfortable and great quality. My first pair is on it's third year and still looks great and I live in Florida so you know they get a lot of use! Very flat shoe so it's not for long walks:-)

I normally wear a size 5-1\/2, but I wear a 6 in Bernardos. Originally bought these in tan, and loved them so much that I got a pair in black too. Great quality, very comfortable, and long lasting.

I ordered these because of the stellar reviews. The reviews are correct! I love these. They are simple beautiful sandals. I got the lighter color so they would just blend with my skin tone. Very comfortable and well made. The chunky stitching makes them special. True to size. I wore them all over Greece!

I love these shoes! I bought them truthfully because my Grandmother has worn Bernardo's for as long as I've been alive and swears by their comfort. So I tried them out, and Grandmother is right! VERY comfortable and this color is the perfect nude on my pale skin, great for dresses or shorts. Love them! I do wish they had a bit of arch support, but I realize this is a sandal so that isn't too big of a deal. I did follow others instructions and ordered a half size big and they fit just right!

I ordered the Blue Luxcalf color which looks to be a dark blue/almost black in the picture. It actually has a translucent bronze sheen so it looks different colors at every angle. Not the color I was expecting but I still like it. Like other reviewers, I would definitely recommend going a size up in these. I normally wear a 6.5 and ordered a 7. I'm happy with the fit, but I can definitely tell they run small compared to other brands. I have a wide foot, so I loved that this shoe is slightly wider than most sandals I try.

These shoes feel much smaller than marked. I would recommend ordering at least a half to a full size bigger than you normally wear. I kept mine with hopes that they would break in like most flips flops do but they have no give whatsoever. Now that I've worn them, I obviously can't return them.

A beautifully crafted shoe, truly high quality leather sole and thong. Sadly my heel seem to slide off the back (to the side) when I walked and so back they go. They are really a work of art, and though no arch support and little cushion they are very comfortable.

I thought these sandals were just okay. They were a bit stiff and a little too wide across the top, so my foot slide off the shoe in a weird way. I like the general style, but not the fit.

I absolutely love these sandals, and have worn them for the last three seasons. I have them in nine different colors (white, luggage, dark brown, pecan, bronze, taupe, turquoise, pink, and cork), and wear them nearly every day. They dress up or down, they go with shorts, skirts, capris, sundresses, and jeans, and are surprisingly very comfortable. There is not a break-in period. They are comfortable right out of the box. I actually wore these sandals every day on our trip to Disney World, and had no comfort issues. There is a little bit of cushion in the sole running the length of the shoe, but there is not any arch support. I have not had any issues with that, but if you are looking for shoes with good arch support, these are not them. The bottom soles are made of leather, therefore, they can be a little bit slippery out of the box. I typically just wear them outside and scrape my foot around on the concrete to scuff the bottoms, and that helps. They feel true to size. I typically wear an 8 or 8½ shoe, and I bought these in an 8, and that was a perfect fit. I would definitely recommend these if you are looking for cute, simple sandals, without all the gaudy embellishments that seem to be on so many sandals these days. These are my absolute favorite sandals, and I get compliments nearly every time I wear them!

The very first pair of sandals I ever wore in the 6th grade were Bernardo Miamis in turquoise. I loved them and wore them everywhere. I still love Bernardo's best. And I am 75 years old. Lets hear it for brand loyalty.
