Bloomingdales bills itself as “Like No Other Store in the World,” and when talking about the retail icon’s women’s shoe department, few would argue. Case in point: fabulously flat Bernardo sandal is claiming much more than an illustrious fashion pedigree. Noted architect Bernard Rudofsky, whose groundbreaking concepts translated beautifully to footwear, founded the company in 1947. By the 1960s came his “Miami” sandal, which quickly became a fixture in the fashion bibles of its time, as evidenced by this particular item experiencing a renaissance today. As chic a shoe staple as ever.
