Our Story

Bernie Mev was originally founded in 1974 in the USA and made traditional women’s footwear that was only sold domestically.

Recognizing its potential, Itamar and Rachel Carmi partnered with Bernie Mev in 2000, and by 2008 he had bought the company in its entirety and transformed it into an original lifestyle brand.

Today Bernie Mev is sold globally, from department stores to high-end boutiques to local and independent stores, all at full MSRP. Our newer men’s and children’s divisions are rapidly expanding and already constitute for approximately 15% of our total business, and our women’s division continues to grow at exponential rates.

Its technology that is taking the shoe industry by storm, its expandable, hand-woven nylon, and knitted mesh upper that fits any kind of feet like a glove, memory foam foot bed that feels like you're walking on clouds and an innovative color combinations and patterns in a wide array of shoe styles from flats, wedges, and sneakers."

When you put a pair of these uniquely designed and extremely comfortable shoes on, you'll understand why our shoes are hard to keep in stores."
