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!

This is my 3rd pair of Lulias. I bought this pair to have as a backup because I never want to be without them. I work in a hospital and am on my feet most of the day. I average about 12,000 steps/day. These are the only shoes I've found that are comfortable from morning till night. I received a pair of Bernie Mev knock-offs as a gift and every time I try to wear them, I have knee pain after just a few hours. The black and black velvet combo is SO CUTE!

Love, love, love these shoes. So sexy. So comfortable. I feel like I'm getting away with something when I wear them.

The shoes feel comfortable on my feet. I got them to take on a trip to slip on and look good. The inside feels so cozy to the feet, I will not need to wear socks. These shoes are exactly what I had in mind.

Love these shoes - only problem I had was that I was shipped two different sizes. I didn't notice this until I wore the shoes a couple of times. The one shoe did feel tight, but it took a couple days for me to even look at the size. I called Zappos and told them what happened and the next day I had a pair of matching size shoes at my doorstep. Since the shoes were mis-matched, I was told to keep them or donate them. LOVE the service as always and LOVE the shoes!

I had to laugh when I opened the box. I followed the directives of other reviewers and ordered a size up. (I am size 11, so I ordered 12.) When I took them out of the box, I thought I had mistakenly ordered children's shoes. They are TINY. I tried them on for kicks, and they barely contain my feet--very tight, short, and narrow. Obviously I will be returning these. Those of you who can find a pair that fits: beware: the sole of the shoe is hard and slippery--I would put tape on the bottom or something. Also, I ordered the pewter, and the fabric of the shoe is scratchy.

I've worn these shoes for over a year and have received more compliments about them than any other pair I've ever owned. I was even at the SAS main shoe store in San Antonio Texas and one of their Designers stopped me and asked if he could take a photo of them. As for the leather holes around the soles, which were mentioned in another review...they have NOT caused a problem- despite that I'm usually rather hard on my shoes. Seriously cute shoes and very comfortable too. You won't be disappointed with them! Love Zappos!

I love these boots, but I feel that Bernie Mev runs small. I wear an 8 1/2 or 9, and I need to buy a 41 in BM. I learned this the hard way, having to give several pairs away after wearing them for a while.

I was really disappointed. These boots were super cute and comfy, but they are NOT grey. They are VERY sparkly. So, if you want them for a party or something, they might be great, but for work, at least my work, they didn’t work out.

These run SO SMALL!! Maybe it’s the elasticized outer that made them feel tight, but they were uncomfortably tight on me. I ordered a size up, and still too tight! Nothing in stock two sizes up, so I guess I’m ruling these out. They’re really cute looking. Super versatile style.

I love this shoe, but sadly after about a month of wearing them, they have started to squeak! One shoe squeaks every time I step...makes me so sad because these shoes are very comfortable. Just wanted to warn others...

I really loved these shoes on line but I must say that they are not that comfortable. The upper park needs more support. Maybe because there is not enough stretch.I am returning them.

Crazy too small!! I'm so disappointed because I adore the look of this shoe. But it was so very tight and small on me. I normally wear an 11, now sometimes a 12 in Euro shoes. This one was marked as a 42/12 so I knew it was smaller than a normal Euro equivalent, but darn, was it ever small. I would say it felt more like a 10.5! Love the looks of the shoe and would be so happy if they would start making larger sizes.

I am so bummed! These run at least a full size small, maybe more. I wear an 11 but am creeping towards an 11.5 in some shoes. These were extremely small on me, and to be marked as a 12 but be so small is really disappointing. Maybe you could update the listing to not say it's a 12, because a true Euro comparable is a 43.

Love the look of these and I have several pairs of Bernie Mev slip on shoes which I find very comfortable. These have similar padded insole which feels very comfy. I like the height of the heel, although the outer sole is hard and potentially may be slick on wet floors. Unfortunately for me, the ankle of these rubbed which would preclude me from wearing them without stockings or high socks which is not the look I'm going for. If you have a thinner ankle these could work for you.

I bought two pairs of Bernie Mev. shoes in different styles. These fit in a 38 and the others fit in a 39 and I normally wear an 8. I was AMAZED at how comfortable these shoes are. The fabric feels like it is hugging your foot and they are more comfortable than most of my flats.

I loved the unique look of these and how they simply slipped on. However, I live where there are wintery conditions and I was sliding just walking across my hardwood floor; there's no way I could wear these anywhere 8 months of the year due to ice and frosty conditions. The worst traction I've ever felt in a shoe. I sure wish this would change because otherwise I loved the shoe.

I normally wear an 11. See in pic my size 11 Fila gym show vs the size TWELVE Bernie Mev. See also the same size shoe (per the label) BY Steve Madden. I love the Steve Madden. Super comfy for all day walking, standing, working. What was the old commercial .. "looks like a heel, feels like a sneaker"?? Well. It's not a heel .. at all .. but it is elegant enough to wear to work for business casual with pants, skirt or dress and then WALK long distances back home. I am so bummed. I wanted the black pair so much. The Steve Maddens were a clearance item at Nordstom Rack so I can't find my size ANYWHERE online :-( If you can FIT the Bernie Mev ... I think you will LOVE IT!! Just be advised, it runs MORE than a size TOO SMALL.

Great looking shoe. My toes are all the way up to the end. The weave gives quite a bit so trying to decide whether to keep them and see how long it takes for my toes to push through, or send back.

Beautiful shoe, but I would say this shoe runs a full size small. Could just barely get into it. Forget about standing up.

I am usually a size 7-7 1/2, because of the reviews I ordered an 8. Fits perfectly! Very comfortable as are all Ber Mevs.

Great stylish ballet flat. The woven materials flex and add visual interest. I find they are a bit small, but nothing to fuss about. If I were to order again, I’d go a half size up.
