Does anyone have any experience with RM Williams chelsea boots? They seem to be the superior choice when you google around. However I think they look pretty creased in a lot of the pics showing them worn in. So any opinions on quality and creasing?

Also how about sizing?

Unless you are a drover, RM Williams are a bit OTT. There are far more elegant shapes on offer from Northampton's finest.

Can I buy Vibram soles in the UK or is it a US eBay job? And is that also the case for ripple soles?

Not found a UK supplier hold stock of ripple soles. Emailed a repairer last week about them and he's able to get me some as his supplier is coming to the UK next week and will be able to bring some with him. He's quoted me £47 plus shipping for fitted and £30 per pair extra soles. Pm me if you're intersted and I'll see if he could bring more.

Depends on what style you want, during my search UK had nothing, while US had plenty of 4014 Cristy and Sierra soles. In the end I sourced all mine from Rakuten Japan as they had all the styles I wanted, Cristy, Ripple and Sierra. I combined them all into one order and it worked out roughly £18 per pair including postage.

You can buy vibram ripple in black, possibly brown as well directly from "Davies O Dell", they let you buy just 1 pair as well if you want. Think its about £15 all in from the UK as well, been a while since I bought ripple though so may have risen bit. Not on their website but they do have them. If your after other colours/styles that they dont hold stock of though they have minimum orders (usually 1-500), hope that helps.

Thanks for the info everyone. Panda_693, just checked their catalogue and they do Vibram ripple soles in black but with the option of other colours on request so they may be the ones.
