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.

Brands I'd also recommend: J. Renee sandals are also nice, Onex too narrow

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.

I love the Bernardo Miami because it looks like a high end sandal. I have a narrow foot and these fit and are comfortable. I wear a 7.5 in sandals, so the 8 works perfectly. I have black and luggage!

Love the gold color, as it is more of a platinum/gold. Not too garish. They go with everything! My foot runs a bit narrow and they fit wonderfully.

These are very good basic, stylish flip flops, I bought mine last summer and they still look very new. The heel is not wearing down, which is the problem I always have with other sandals (I wear mine to death). I also like the fact that I can drench these in a rain storm (try not to but unavoidable sometimes) and after they dry out they still look brand new, the water doesn't phase them. They are well worth the money. My only complaint is that I unfortunately can't wear them for a long day of walking, the first time I did that I got a blister. For wearing to my (casual) office and running around town they are great. Very happy with these sandals.

I bought my first Bernardo Miami style 25 years ago in white. This Miami style has stood the test of time. I took other reviewers suggestions and order 1/2 size up. I wear 7 1/2 and ordered size 8. I am pleased with the medium width not being too wide for my narrow foot. The foot bed feels cushioned for the type sandal it is. I ordered it in black (has white stitching on the foot bed) and is very comfortable out of the box for a thong sandal. The sole appears to be leather with grip strips under the toe bed, and the "rim" around the foot bed appears to be dark wood that will not wear off and leave any white where color has worn off.

Brands I'd also recommend: Very few of this type are of this quality.

Love these sandals! I wore the Bernardo Miami sandals back in the '70s! Was so pleased to find them again at Zappos. I wore the luggage ones constantly in the South of France as well as a pair of black ones. I am currently waiting new stock to come in to order a pair of white ones. I always wear a size 6 and due to previous reviews, sized up one size to a 7 and they fit perfect! The 6 would have been too short. Looks great on the foot and are very classy. Perfect with capris, jeans, skirts, dresses, bathing suits. No doubt I will have these for many years to come. Extremely well made! Recommend without reservation!

This is a great sandal - soft, high-quality leather, can be dressed up or down. Very comfortable (I often have trouble with anything between my toes - no chafing whatsoever here). Order at least a full size up - I am normally a 9.5 and had to get an 11 which is still on the small side!
