At the encouragement of Vogue’s Diana Vreeland, the Bernardo brand was founded by architect, artist, and best-selling author Bernard Rudofsky in 1946. The Bernardo sandal was designed to free the foot and is credited as the original modern-day sandal. Bernardo designs today reflect the luxury and style that has defined the brand for over 70 years. Products are handcrafted in Brazil using high quality artisanal leathers and expert craftsmanship.
