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!

These shoes were at least one size larger than ordered. I'm a size 5 and most shoes of that size fit me perfectly. Some companies started making their shoes larger about 2 years ago. And not by a little. That being said, if you normally wear a 6 1/2 or 7, you shouldn't have a problem with fit.

Unfortunately, while I can make most Bernie Mevs work, these were too narrow for my wide width foot--noticeable stretching off the foot bed. Also, since these are sporty-looking so I don't think it'd disturb the aesthetic, I wish it had a tab in the back for easier pull-on.

Ordered a size larger as suggested, but returned for 2 sizes larger than I usually wear. Strictly for casual wear, and often with socks.

So light weight, very supportive, but sadly too narrow for my feet due to bunions.

I love the style of these shoes, but had to order three different sizes before finding the one I kept. Even still, it feels short in length with my toes touching the end of the shoe. Being fabric, I hope that won't be a problem. The next size up was too large. I already have one pair of Bernie Mev shoes I purchased a couple of years ago and they have held up very, very well!

Very comfortable. Not sturdy but they aren’t supposed to be hiking shoes. I will buy them again.

SUPER comfortable, felt amazing as soon as I put them on! Great easy style that can be worn with so many options, not big or bulky. They were slightly short, but not enough to order a larger size.

A very comfortable shoe. I have another pair of Bernie Mev shoe, but this one was not flattering for my newly forming bunion. It seemed to visually accentuate it and so I will return it.

I love this shoe, but it does not work for my foot. In European sizing, I wish the States sold half sizes because I often seem to be a 37.5. Because of the style of the shoe (the weave makes the toe of the shoe pull up), it made my big toe go numb almost immediately after putting on the shoe. The heel was comfortable- would not be a problem with chafing or blisters. Sadly, this is going back, and I'm sure the 38 would be too large.

These are the only shoes I have ever worn that perfect strangers will stop to ask who makes them and where to buy a pair. This is my second pair since the first ones have worn out!

I adore these shoes! This is my third pair. I wear them constantly in warm weather so they last only a year or two. They are adorably cute and very comfortable. I get many compliments on them. They were unavailable for awhile and I despaired, but then they showed up again.

Fit well once I got the right size and are super cute. Started out in the AM, shoes felt comfy as I left the hotel. By noon, noticed my feet were starting to hurt - no arch support perhaps. By 2 PM, I was nearly in tears, had no way to change shoes and was desperate to get them off my feet. Went to a Target and bought the first pair of shoes that fit. $10 pair of shoes at Target were better constructed and more comfortable than these torturous things. As I have worn them, I’m stuck. Maybe I’ll give them to someone I don’t like. Bwahaha!

Very comfortable with bunions. Due to a back problem do not wear for long walks. I have two pairs of Margos and two pairs of Catwalk both are nice looking. I have had the Catwalks for a couple of years now and they still look great. Wish they would make Margo’s in more colors.

I really wanted to love this shoe. It's attractive and the bronze is a lovely neutral color. But like other reviewers mentioned, the straps are very tight around the foot. I thought this might actually be a benefit for me because my foot is a little narrow and straps often gap, but this shoe was too tight for me, especially around the toe area. I normally wear a size 8 but ordered both 8 and 8 1/2. The 8 was too tight and the 8 1/2 was too long.

This is the 2nd pair of bernie mev.dreams that I have purchased. I love the fit and they are so comfortable for walking, much more than tennis shoes.

Not only are these shoes perfect, but the help I received from one of your reps was excellent. There was a problem with order and she stayed on it until it was finalized. She promised that the shoes would be here within a day, and T HEY WERE!

OK, I'm modifying my previous review. They're still cute as can be, but they're s-h-o-r-t. I had blisters on my toes. I'm ordering up a full size to see if that does the trick.

I like these shoes. You can wear them in the rain and be assured they won't be ruined. They are a little snug, but stretch out over time.
