Ron, I'd recommend adding this sizing information in your auctions, and possibly even bill them as the standard size instead of the tagged size. Also, I believe there's a special field you can specify for shoe size and type, this makes searching for size much easier than looking through each of the listing titles.
I do list the sizes on the drop down menu, and I list them in the US equivelants....I do the translations in the descriptions as well. For example, a UK 8 is listed as US 8.5 on auctions concerning 3B last and US 9 in other lasts. I prefer to provide the UK sizes as that is the stamp and I think it would be more confusing if a client received something with a different stamp than a different explaination. Also, about 30% of my business (and growing) is International where UK sizes are much more recognized than US sizes.
So, for any of my auctions where I am getting shoes that originated in the EU, I will list the PROPER TRANSLATION, AS I KNOW IT, in the listings description for the US market. The sizes in the listing title are US SIZES.
thanks again...let me know when you receive them -
