    They look similar to this (minus the cleats):

    Ahhh so they do. I'm a UK 8.5 so hoping they are quoting women's size which might bring them closer to a good fit for me. Bit of messing around with the heel and bob's your uncle. Fingers crossed.

    Hah sorry!

    Wiki explanation which is quite good:

    "To make a ham sandwich, just put a piece of ham between two slices of buttered bread, and Bob's your uncle."

    Sorry - just a pet peeve of mine, but the possessive form of 'it' is actually 'its', not 'it's' which is strictly a contraction for 'it is'.

    Sorry I had been offending youins

    Four pairs of NOS Alan McAfee shoes. UK Size 10.5C. Two brown; two black. Seller says they're from the 40s. From the look of the boxes, that might be correct. Opening bids of $24.88. If this is your size, well worth a look.
