    I'm not familiar with the stores in the UK, but would a craft store have the parts you need? You could get a sheet of Vibram Cherry rubber, and some lacing. Just a thought.

    I'm looking myself, and the best I've come up with so far is this



    http://www.algeos.com/acatalog/Kalgena_Riubbed_Rubber.html

    or this

    You'll get a good few pairs out of that.

    They also do rubberised cork for a footbed. I haven't found a leather supplier yet.

    These look a bit expensive, so my next port of call is my local cobbler and the horseriding shop in my village.

    I also have a possible contact in Germany who thinks he might be able to get similar materials cheaper.

    If you're going to buy a pair of Xero Shoes, buy them from the U.S. site, even including shipping they're still cheaper than getting them form the U.K. site. I've ordered 2 pair from them and they've arrived in about a week.

    I suggest contacting Tracy at Barefoot Britain. She is Brighton based and maybe able to help. http://barefootbritain.co.uk/

    I've gotten two pairs of shoes from Barefoot Britain, one for me and one for my son - they were inexpensive and arrived in two days. Really good customer service, too, so I have only had good experiences w/ them.
