Got there in the mail the other day and was so excited when they arrived. The style is sleek and classic but the color (navy) is a fun pop--different from the expected black or brown boot. I like that it has a small heel to keep the back of my pants out of any water, and the detail at the back of the boot is a nice touch in case I ever want to wear them with a dress and tights. Unfortunately, they run a bit big--even with thick socks (they are rubber so they have a lot of give)--so I am returning them and keeping fingers crossed that they have a pair half a size smaller.

I am a bit late in writing this review, since I bought these sandals several years ago. All I can say is that I love them!! Got them in black, size 12 (wish they made a 12 again) and they look and fit beautifully. The toe ring was a bit tight at first but that relaxed with time. I like the "simple" thong style look. I have been wearing Bernardo sandals since the 70's, and still have a few pair from the old days too! The quality and construction justifies the higher price. They even have a leather outsole which is almost indestructible. I get quite a few compliments on them, but no one has ever asked me why a guy is wearing gals shoes, probably since they do have a unisex look. The wife even has a pair that she loves. Please make these agin in larger sizes!! Thanks Zappos !!!

Great looking shoes. Comfortable for heels . I'm 64 and don't do well in heels at my age. But these shoes were comfortable!

I've worn both 6.5 and 7 in Bernardo sandals and the 6.5 fit me well in these. I think they are really cute and only returning for the blush color. I liked the gray/green but they didn't have it in my size. They got the blush back in which I prefer to the mustard color, just personal preference. They don't have much arch support or cushiness but are comfortable and the heel is manageable for me.

These are too small, however...I love them all. I'd like to exchange all three pairs for size 8, please

Cute style and fun color. No arch support, so these wouldn’t be great for lengthy walking. Okay for short term, limited wearing.

Super comfortable and adorable shootie. Highly recommended.

I wasn’t crazy about the round heel and the color had too much green for me (more of an olive tint than taupe). But the fit and comfort were ok - so if you want an Olive-y taupe it would be great.

Generally I love Bernardo, which is a well made brand. This shoe was a bit odd though. They run a bit large so my usual size is a bit small and a half size bigger is a bit too wide. Also, the first one I ordered was damaged- the slip knot across the top was twisted underneath and if I untwisted it underneath, it became twisted on top. Also, the strap that runs from the middle of the shoe to the toe is a little bit too long- on one pair, it totally gapped and looked odd. Because red is a hard color to find, I ended up keeping the bigger pair and hope as the leather becomes worn in to the shape of my foot, it will be more comfortable. Will probably put one of those clear rubbery insoles in it.

I wasn’t as crazy about the round heel and they are more olive-y than I wanted but nice looking if the olive tint will work for you

I have been wearing Bernardo Miami sandals for 40 years. I wanted these new Navy & white ones at Nordstrom, but, they sold out of my size by the time they went on sale. Even the Bernardo website was sold out of most sizes. I was happy to find them here at Zappo's, although, not as great of a sale. They look great with denim, navy or with white skirts or pants. You don't wear these for support or for rough terrain, you wear them because the are pretty, made of leather, and never go out of style. I suggest going up a half size.

Love these boots! Comfortable, chic, and waterproof!

I have been seeing the white boot in fall/winter craze online and decided to give it a go even though I'm in my late forties I still like to dress fashion forward and smart. I love quality of the boot but it felt surprisingly large. I wear a 7/12 in this brand but there was a lot of room at the end so that I could try a full length orthotic in it and there was still lots of room for a really thick pair of socks. The narrow opening at the top was very nice although it pressed into the top of my ankle when I walked on the carpet at home in an uncomfortable way. There was a little sharp bit on the right of the right bootie which kind of cut into me. I didn't like that. Also I felt that the white was too white. If it had been a softer white that would look better. I ultimately sent it back. At this price point it was too much of an investment piece for me for a fashion trend that either I am too old for or that just doesn't quite work with my outfits. I will keep my eye out for another white bootie at a cheaper price point and a softer white. Also the cutting into my leg at the opening was unpleasant and would really need to be softened to be able to wear it comfortably.

When I got this shoe I just fell in love with it. The suede is soft and I could tell it is a high quality shoe. However, I ended up returning it as I didn't think I would get as much wear out of it as what I need it for. I was planning on wearing it for work but ultimately decided that the open toe was not work appropriate combined with the soft suede which could ruin easily so sadly I sent it back. Please Bernardo made a shoe like this with a closed toe and in navy leather or a bootie at this price point.

I can't speak to the comfort of these loafers because the run very large and I didn't even get both shoes out of the box. I could easily fit my thumb in the back of the shoe. I would say size down at least one half size, if not a whole. these might also be better for a slightly wider foot. Style is beautiful, a little shiny but not overwhelming.

These are a cool pair of shoes! I was convinced to purchase a pair after reading a review that described these as the perfect way to get rid of tan lines from wearing traditional sandals all summer. I am glad I purchased these. They’re a whitish-silvery gray, which means they go with just about anything. I get lots of compliments and plan on buying another pair.

Amazing! SO comfortable and cool at the same time. Great design— versatile.
Zappos Reviewer on September 05, 2018
I normally cannot wear a high heel but these are only 1-3/4”. I was told they were designed by an architect and Jackie Onassis wore this brand as she had larger feet. So do I. I tried them on and was amazed they fit like a glove and as if they were made for me. They made my feet look smaller and so sophisticated. I have two pair now and plan to get a third when additional colors come out for Fall. They are expensive but worth the price.

I love these summery sandals. They can look boho or classic, depending on what they are paired with. I wore them all day, walking, straight out of the box with no discomfort. They are a true dark navy, which is a hard to find color. I have a wide forefoot and narrow ankles. The shoe fit will, without any of the dreaded hangover. This brand makes quality shoes that are worth the price.
Melissa from McAlester on September 04, 2018
I was so disappointed in this shoe, especially knowing the price. It hurt within seconds of putting it on where the edge of the top of the shoe presses on the top of your foot and is very painful. I thought it may stretch out a little with use but I could not walk across the ground floor of my house without feeling pain. I had to return these.

Love this sandal! Well made and comfortable. I have had a hard time finding a flat sandal that is wide enough and this one does it.
Zappos Reviewer on August 22, 2018
Love the way they look and feel. They are very soft and comfortable.
Zappos Reviewer on August 21, 2018
A comfortable summer sandal. I wasn't thrilled with the white stitching, so I used a black Sharpie to hide the stitches.
Zappos Reviewer on August 20, 2018
Lovely sandal - but even a size larger than i would normally buy was too narrow for my feet.
Zappos Reviewer on August 13, 2018
Perfect neutral sandal for the summer. I found them to run large. I typically wear size 6 but they were huge. I sized down to 5.5 and they were perfect.
