Question Vibram 5 fingers sizing question??

I measured my feet, and they are bang on 9.5 inches. However, in the womens sizes, they only do increments of an eighth (????? like why).

Which size should I buy? I wear a UK 5.

Also, which are a good all round pair for outdoor use - walking etc.

I came home and the other half has bought himself a pair because there's a half price sale, so I WANT SOME

Are the treksport the best ones for that?

Or there is pink.

Size up if you don't hit an exact size. Better a bit too much room than not enough room.

Okay, 9.5" is 9 1/2" which is 9 4/8. VFFs in women's sizes are available in 9 3/8 or 9 5/8, so I'd go with the 9 5/8. This is a size 39 or 40, depending on the style.

I was measured according to their website to wear a size 38. They were too tight, 39s didn't fit right, need to sell/return them and get the 40s.

I should be a 38 according to the size scale (UK size 5)... although 39 is a size 6. So I'm going with 39's... and hoping for the best.

Think I'm going to get these ones:

I like that blue which is odd because pink is usually my top pick!

After all that, I am starting to think the website is selling fakes... Some of the grammar is bad... and I don't 100% trust it.

Opinions?
