My wife loves the Bernardo Miami sandals! I purchased a pair for her when we were first married (1963). During the years, whenever my wife wanted white sandals she always tried to find the Bernardo Miami. No one seemed to carry them. For our 48th wedding anniversary I decided to see if I could find them again. I found Zappos and they delivered. My wife was thrilled when I gave them to her - she loves the Bernardo Miami sandals! The sandals are very well made and look great. Plan on getting her a pair of navy and a pair of red Bernardo Miami sandals. They may seem to be a bit expensive but you always get what you pay for. They are well worth the price.

Out of the box you can tell these are well made and worth the money. The padding of the foot bed is so comfortable. All that said, they made the heel so narrow that it sits on my foot crooked causing my heel to touch the ground. This to me is a huge oversight for what could have easily been my favorite flip flop.

I love these sandals. I have already bought another color. They do not look like they offer any support but they are comfortable to wear all day, even for someone like me who has pretty flat feet. And they are great looking. I have the gold and the white and I will spend the summer in them. They run small so go up a size.

These shoes are so comfortable! I usually have to break in shoes and not these. From the first time I tried them on they felt like a pair I had already broken in. Wish they had more colors. I would definitely order more.

I ordered this shoe to go with a dress & because of the good reviews. I ordered a size 10M (no wide sizes available). This shoe is okay, but nothing to write home about. There is no padding in the foot bed so not that comfortable. In the 10M my heel was right at the edge, so you probably need to order up a size. I returned this shoe as it just wasn't that great.

The shoe was wide enough so that my little toe did not hang off the side. But I'm a 7.5 and I ordered a 7 (there are no half sizes). It was just a little to small. I should have ordered an 8. I would recommend that anyone else between sizes order up a size.

A must have. These are the best thong sandals. Order a size larger than you wear. I am a 7, but am 8 in the Bernardo Miami.

Can't sing Zappos.com praises enough! After ordering these Bernardo flip flops (that I love so much I've ordered them in 7 different colors!). I quickly realized I ordered the wrong size. I looked up the customer service number on the website and called in hopes of stopping the order. The lady was so helpful with correcting my order to the right size and offering me a special shipping. I couldn't stop smiling. I actually made a Facebook post about how awesome I thought Zappos.com was. Getting my favorite shoes the next day was bonus!

These thongs are great. I \r\nhave a pair of Bernardo\'s exactly like these in fuscia that I have had for about 15 years and am still wearing them. These are just as comfortable and the quality is still there.

My favorite sandals are Bernardos. They give work with just about everything that's casual nice. They are not cushy, and sometimes the leather bottoms are slippery, but somehow they are very comfortable. I'd get them in every color if I could.

Love them! Bought them in black as well. Would love to have them in every color just like Jackie O. Very comfortable, no blisters or sore feet. Can be a little slick on some floors and grass.

This is my first pair of this brand, which is now absolutely my number one choice in sandals. I got the silver. Not only are these sandals absolutely gorgeous, they are a perfect fit, stay on my feet, and the leather is so luxuriously soft that I feel like I'm melting with happiness when I have them on. They are wonderful. I am back today to look other styles, as if I needed more shoes, but I'll only be wearing these silver Bernardos until I get more colors.

What can I say about Bernardo’s Miami sandals? How about that they are great looking, great feeling and well worth the price! Bernardo makes the best sandals available and add to that Zappos’ great service, and you’ve got a combination that’s hard to beat. As with all Bernardo sandals, order up a size. I’m an 8, but always buy a 9 in Bernardos! Keep up the good work Zappos!

Cute shoes. Comfy. Foot slides around a bit on the footbed. I kept them because I think that as I wear them, this will dissipate. Size was true. As always, excellent customer service from Zappos.

I really like these sandals I think I will wear them often. They do run small, I am a solid 6 1/2 normally but after reading the reviews about them running small I ordered a size 7 and they are perfect...going a full size bigger would have been too much though.

These are beautiful shoes. And very comfortable. BUT, I normally wear a 9M, but those were too short and my heel hung off the back. Even on my daughter who normally wears an 8.5M, but actually has a bit of a narrow foot. She had to go to a size 10 because of the length! I tried on the 10's and they are just still too short for me. My heel was right at the edge. I can't figure out what the problem is?! Maybe we have long feet? lol Never had this bad of a problem before. The shoe appears well made, nice leather, nice soft gold color and a cushy footbed. So, she'll keep the 10's and I'll be without. Sigh....

I have been buying Bernardo's for quite sometime. This is my 10th pair of Bernardo's. Excellent made, last a lifetime. This product is worth investing in. Once you own a pair nothing else will do.

I had been looking at these shoes for awhile trying to decide whether to purchase them or not but I'm so glad I did. I love, love these sandals. They can go with so many outfits, dressy or casual. I am now looking to buy in other colors! I ordered these on a Friday and had them on my porch by Monday. Worth the money! Great job Zappos!

Absolutely beautiful, well made, classic shoe. Zappos service and speedy shipping top-notch as always! I couldn't wait to get them, especially since they carried my larger size. But it was the saddest day ever, to have them not fit and have to return them. They run 1/2-1 size small. Probably not a problem for smaller sizes, but for me, I ordered the largest they make and now I'm even sadder knowing I'll never be able to wear these shoes.

Well, been eyeing these for 2 years, every spring I look at them read reviews and till now never purchased. decided to take the plunge with the white nappa top/brown footbed. I listened to the overwhelming majority of reviews that said ran a full size small. I ordered the size 8. I wear a 7 in thongs a 6 or 6.5 in high heels, they fit perfect - a bit stiff but they're leather will need a bit of breaking in. Superb quality - love them! I will buy more colors now that I know my size in these a size 8. I can't believe it. I never wear that size, except running shoes which I add insoles to, etc. If I hadn't bought the 8, my toes and my heel would have been sitting on the stitching as is they don't and the upper is still snug enough for my medium width foot. Thanks Zappos for a great product! Highly recommended.

These are the greatest classic sandals I have ever owned. The quality is superb, the comfort is exceptional for a flat sandal. I will be buying more colors of this particular style, when they go on sale. I hope this model is available indefinitely. It is so classic. Wear them with everything...they will last forever! Thank you Zappos for the best customer service ever!

Ordered up half a size after reading the reviews. Cute sandal, but the leather thong between the toes was very short and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I had to send them back.
