General Information

Genuine double-stitching. Limitless.

The double-stitching technique used by Bertl was developed around 200 years ago for mountain farmers and forest workers carrying out their daily tasks under extreme conditions. The insole is first sewn to the leather uppers and the lining to the so-called welt seam. Subsequently, the upper leather is folded outward and sewn to the rubber midsole via a second seam. It is thus stitched twice to the shoe bottom, making it „double-stitched“ and producing a very stable shoe. Seam grooves are stamped into the leather at the reinforced heel cap, largely covering the seams and providing additional protection.

Monumental footwear. Russia leather boots by Schuh-Bertl.

Durability beyond the normal life of the shoe is paramount at Schuh-Bertl in Munich. Our Russia leather boots are proof: this monument of a shoe, virtually indestructible and time-tested over the course of decades as a reliable work boot, is something of a glacial erratic and looks completely out of place among its peers. Derived from a work shoe worn since the 1920s, it is manufactured using half-shoe lasts – straight at the front and quite high, with space for the toes. Bertl uses asymmetric lasts, which corresponds to the natural position of the toes and ensures adequate support without pressure.

The epitome of leather: thick Russia leather.

This tough mountain shoe leather, also called Russia leather, has become a rarity. This oiled leather, derived from the skin of Southern German cattle, can be seen at the boot shaft with the openpore side facing outwards. It is sealed with oil and wax, making the Russia leather extremely tear-resistant, durable and virtually waterproof. Light scratches or bruises, like those that may repeatedly occur during use, can be easily rubbed away or removed by light oiling.


the size of the shoe should be selected so that it is 1–1.5 cm longer than the foot. This allows the foot enough space when walking and ensures that the toes will not bump against the solid front cap.
