The Bertie Story…
SINCE 1974 Carlo, a Milan airport cleaner, spent many of his breaks chatting to shoe salesman who frequently travelled to and from Italy. Without realising it, Carlo was starting his love affair with shoes! Before long, brooms were swapped for shoe bags, buckets for order books and floor cleaner for shoe polish. Thanks to an opportunity from one of his new footwear buddies, he joined the airport hoppers travelling the world and selling shoes. In 1974 because of Carlo’s new found love, ‘Bertie’ was created. Still to this day Bertie is designed with passion and individuality: personal to our customers but inspirational to all.
