Meindl at W.J.French & Son

The Meindl family partner up with the French family. 

We’re pleased to share that you can now be fitted for and buy a range of Meindl boots and shoes at W. J. French & Son, Southampton. Much like the Meindl family in Germany,  W.J. French have spent over 200 years looking after people’s feet, fitting, maintaining and repairing shoes here in the UK.

“We believe a well-fitted pair of shoes is an investment for life’s journey, and we’ll look after those shoes for their lifespan. In a world where so much is disposable, it’s good to know your feet are in safe hands.” – W. J. French & Son
