    It means the width of the shoes...

    M or B means medium for a female shoes. M or D is medium for male.

    The B and the M are width indicators.

    The measured width is assigned a letter (or combination of letters), taken from a table (indexed to length and width). See examples below: (each starting with the narrowest width):

    * A, B, C, D, E, EE, EEE, EEEE, F, G

    * 4A, 3A, 2A, A, B, C, D, E, 2E, 3E, 4E, 5E, 6E

    * N (narrow), M (medium) or R (regular), W (wide)

    The A-E width indicators used by some US and UK shoe manufacturers are typically based on the width of the foot, and common step sizes are 1/16 of an inch.

    I agree with the answer from GeneL. To add, it is a US shoe size. That is what the "US" means.
