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!

Love Bernie Mev., cute boot, but too narrow in the toe. Had to return.

These shoes fit true to size. The leather so so smooth and soft they feel like a glove on your feet! They are awesome!!! I get so many compliments. I have had them a year and getting ready to order a pair in black for work.

This was my second purchase and decided to go up a size. The second pair felt smaller. I have decided to send them back not happy with the purchase.

My first bernie mev purchase. I wear a 7 1/2 M 95% of time. In this shoe, I ordered accordingly; and had to return because they were a full size too small. I liked the shoe so ordered a full sizse up. I love this shoe. comfortable and sturdy. I think they are stylish and a tad bit funky. First purchase with this unusual fabric so hoping it holds up.

I am returning the first pair for a one size larger, the toes were a little snug. No arch support so will have to place an insole. The weave for the upper foot is very comfortable. Will see how the next size up feels.

So very comfortable! BUT runs very, very small. Been ordering up to try to find the one that will fit. Once I get the size right, will order in many colors. Super cute and could wear these all day! Gave it only 3 stars for the "overall" due to the size being so far off.

I always order these shoes now with a back strap because the flats don't always stay on my feet. Could be because of my high arch. They don't last forever, but I wear Bernie Mevs so much that it's probably me. I always receive compliments.

Why didn't I believe all the other reviews? I tried two different sizes, but in both cases my heel just slipped out and would have made walking any distance impossible. What a shame, because the style was just what I wanted. Believe everyone, this is a badly designed shoe!

I say true to size, but know that if you are a 9.5 or even if a 9 is slightly snug, try the 41 NOT the 40. If you get the right size, these are perfect, not too narrow, the heel doesnt slip while you walk. These are like foot butter and way more styling than the photo shows. So, i returned the 40, got the 41 in all things Bernie Mev and every pair is perfect. i

I am attracted to the tan color. this is my reason for trying the size larger then my 10 medium. the size 11 feels like an eight! originally thought they were 1 size smaller, now i can confirm that this shoe is in fact at least 2 sizes smaller. this tan color is very hard to find.

I would love them if they weren’t so small! I am a solid size 9 and I couldn’t even put my arch down in these. I realize they are a stretchy material but no amount of stretch is going to make these fit.

Feels awesome on the feet and stylish at the same time! It's a low profile shoe, and SUPER lightweight. So don't expect a lot of cushioning or arch support- it's meant to be that way! And I love it. It's got quite a bit more cushioning than your minimalist running shoes (e.g. KSO Vibram 5 fingers)- but just the right amount for city use. These are super comfortable. In street shoes, I wear a 6.5. Running shoes 7. In my Merrell Vapor Glove 3, I can fit into a size 6.5, but need 7 for running. In these Bernie, I fit perfectly in a size 7. So order a half size UP! PS: The Silver/Grey- hmm, it doesn't match the pictures on Zappos. IN reality it looks more shiny (reflective) and tinsel-y. It feels a bit too sparkly for my taste- might do nice at Xmas, or festive gatherings. (hence the 4/5 stars) I feel a little odd wearing them around town during the day. But having said that, the comfort and overall style of the shoe outweigh this mildshortcoming. I'm sure some of the other colors would've served me better. But I'm keeping them as I want a neutral color, on the light side of the spectrum.

Runs really small. I am a 9.5/10 and the 40(10) and 41 (11) were both too small!

When i first put them on, i knew they were keepers! Surrounded my feet like a glove and they were easy heels to wear. I have somewhat wide feet and they were fine. Even though i haven’t worn them enough to be sure — the soles and bottom of the heels of the shoes seem to be the kind that may cause me to turn my ankle(?). I’ll be extra careful. I love these woven elastic shoes- I plan to wear them when I am in a meeting or for a sort of dressy occasion. They make my feet look cute too if that helps!

These are beautiful! I purchased my regular size, but like other reviews stated, they're a half size too small. They don't come in half sizes either which really bums me out. They have to be returned because I would never be able to wear them especially all day at work.

With a bunion, I’m always searching for a cute shoe that camouflages the bunion, yet is soft enough to stretch, and lightweight for travel, and will look good with shorts, slacks and skirts. The “unicorn” shoe, right? Bernie Mev “Catwalk” pretty much fits the bill....with one small exception. Trying to find the right size is exasperation central!! They don’t come in half sizes. I normally wear an 8-1/2 or 9....ordered both initially, but way too short. Ok, so size 10 (gasp!) here we come.....and my big toe is right there crammed up at the front. Seriously, Bernie?? Get your sizing in synch with the rest of the shoe world (and make half sizes!) and I promise to be a faithful acolyte.

Got the Gray & Black Gunmetal boots, but sadly have to send these back. I love the funky, clunky look of these booties, but for some reason, they aren't as comfortable as other Bernie Mevs that I have. But I'm still a fan & will continue to check out others that ZAPPOS has!

Love the look and make of these shoes but they were just too tight all the way around. If bernie mev ever makes their shoes in a larger size and wider width, I know where all my money is going!

European sizes so look great but run small. I needed an 11 (41), normally 9.5/10.

Loved the style and comfort- but wondering if these will stretch? I ordered the 41 - normally these are plenty large for my feet (depending on brand 41 can be too large!) but this 41 fits like a 40 hardly a 10 let alone an 11! Not sure if I will keep or not.

This is a pretty and very comfortable shoe. I wear an 8.5 over ninety percent of the time, so I bought a size 39 and size 40. The size 40 fit better. My large toe came all the way to the end of the size 39. Don't think this is made for heavy walking, but just fine for errands or a casual date.

Love the shoes as I have finicky weird feet but they still look dressy enough to wear with slacks! Wish they had wides.

Strange because I bought these in the shorter wedge in a 9 (39) and they fit like a glove except slippy on the heel - these in a 39 were really snug and unfortunately still wouldn’t hold on to my heel. Completely bummer because I would love them so much if they’d stay on my heel.
