General Information

One Shoe for All Occasions. Literally.

The Haferlschuh is a double stitched Russia leather shoe which originally was the traditional everyday footwear and indeed work shoe in the Alps. The turned up tip creates space for the toes when walking down hill, and the high shape hugging the heel holds the foot in the shoe on the way uphill. The deep cut-outs on the sides prevent the shank from rubbing on the ankles, and the arched sole enables you to roll off at every step comfortably.
Schuh-Bertl manufacturers our Haferl in manually done craftsmanship and with the medium, that is, Allgäu lacing accordingly to the historical model. The 3.5 to 4 mm thick Russia leather comes from the only tannery in Germany that can process leather in this thickness (with a fat content of 20 to 30 percent). Stretching leather that thick over the extremely asymmetrical lasts without causing creases is an art in itself.
As is traditional for Haferls, the shoe is unlined, because the lining would constitute a weak point and because the smooth grain side of the leather faces the inside of the shoe and the rough, insensitive flesh side faces outside, so it doesn’t really need one. The only exception is the double stitching at the heel, the necessary seam to assemble the shank from one piece of Russia leather – this seam is lined.
This ode to the shoemaker‘s art can literally be worn the entire year. The Haferl needs no care and will last for many years.
