Cool items.

One ebay tip: put sizing info in your headlines.

I don't think so. I only search by size. Why waste time looking at items that will never fit?

The point is that you won't ever even see items without sizing information in their headers because they won't show up in the search list. Most people use searches like "Ferragamo 10" or "Polo 42" and would therefore never even know your items existed.

I would advise using euro sizing in addition to US sizing if you have space in the headline. Sometimes I search by it as well. A fraction of buyers don't know the true correspondence between the systems, and also some exact matchups are a matter of chance, i.e. I am a us 8.5 but a euro 41 in most shoes. Many sellers will sell a 41 shoe as an 8, so I search there as well.

In the end, both sizing systems are useful.
