Well navigating Taobao really stretched my year 9 Chinese to its limits, but I just managed to finally buy 7 of these for $87 AUD shipped. I gather they are factory seconds.
I'll report back if
Taobao seems to have refunds though which is not bad.
It also seems that pretty much all Woodlore products can be had on Taobao (they are all made in China anyway). So if this works I might buy a few more things.
this one also looks like a good store for shoe care, with more buyer ratings, but three months to shipping: https://woodroyal.world.taobao.com/
