Here at we pride ourselves in offering quality shoes and boots sourced from reputable and reliable manufacturers.  Brands are added to our portfolio only after the most intensive scrutiny of their ability to provide our customers with products we are confident of.

We are here to offer any advice you may require either by telephone or by email. A size scale (to the right) is provided on the home page of our website and repeated throughout the site to assist in demonstrating the comparison between UK and European shoe sizes.

Certain products in the Mephisto and Rohde ranges are offered in European sizes.  If you are at all uncertain as to which is likely to be best for you, please Contact Us for help.

Rather than offer a vast range of models some of which may not always available, we specialise in premium quality brands from reputable European based suppliers.  This enables us to obtain the best possible service from the factories and in the unlikely event we cannot supply your requirements from our vast stocks we are usually able to provide a quick delivery direct to you.  Unlike many other websites, the stock we show of Mephisto - World's Finest Footwear - represents those we currently have physically here in our warehouse in Burnham-on-Sea.  Regular deliveries are received from the factory in France and consequently availability changes on a daily basis.

It is important to us that you, the customer, can deal with us with confidence.  We may be trading with the benefit of 21st century technology but nevertheless we hope you will speak to us over the telephone or e-mail us if you require advice on any of the brands we sell.  You may have a favourite old pair of shoes, which we can advise the nearest equivalent or you may have a question about fittings or lasts.  If we cannot give you an immediate answer, we know someone who can!  We shall get back to you very quickly.

Enjoy shopping with us; we welcome your comments and suggestions, complimentary or critically as only by listening can we constantly strive to improve our service.
