Never come across them on my regular and fruitless searches for a good UK vibram dealer. Vibram shop on Old St?

They look shit anyway.

They have them here in 3 colours and all sizes (about half way down the page), it's a trade only supplier but maybe you can find a cobbler with an account with them.

Liquiproof is great.
I did a very expensive goatskin jacket and there was no blemishes at all and water rolls off.
Seems expensive but goes a long way.

Maine guide (moccasin style) are half size big bearing in mind they are tagged with the us size. yuketen Johnson and other Yuketen non moccasins a whole size big. I’m a uk 9 in trainers and take 9.5 (tagged size) in Maine guide and 9 (tagged) in Johnson. Hope that makes sense.

Really helpful, thanks it is the moccasin ones I'm looking at. I'm a uk10 in most trainers, so I guess looking for a us10.5 then
