Bernardo shoes are considered to be high-quality women's sandals. The Bernardo Footwear company was created in 1947 and continues to design shoes with Italian influence to this day. Bernardo Footwear is renowned for its Miami sandal which has a classic and timeless design. However, many other styles are available, including the popular Mina sandal.

Bernardo shoes are conceptually designed by a product development team in Florence, Italy. However, the shoes are manufactured in the United States and some specialty items are manufactured in Brazil. Bernardo makes a collection of handbags in addition to women's sandals. All Bernardo products are handcrafted with care to ensure that they are comfortable to wear and are high in quality.

Types of Bernardo Shoes

The Miami sandal is the most popular of all Bernardo shoes. It has been a favorite since the company began, especially in the '60s and '70s. This style is still a fresh design for women today. It is available in 22 colors and in whole sizes. Miami sandal sizes include 7-11 in narrow widths (which can be hard to find in other manufacturers, as most narrow-footed women know!) and 5-12 in medium widths.

The Mina sandal is another well-known Bernardo style. It features a handcrafted raffia flower on a thong style of sandal. Nine colors of Mina sandals are available, including fun colors like fuchsia, and sand. Mina sandals are available in the same shoe sizes as Miami sandals. Both of these styles have been featured in popular magazines such as ELLE, Self, Lucky, and InStyle.
