Like if this guide is helpful

'Quality' shoe manufacturers (such as Barker and Church) use a unique method of shoe sizing - particularly if the shoes are bench-made or hand-finished. This sizing can cause confusion for the seller, who often decides to guess the size (and very often guesses it wrongly) much to the annoyance of the buyer who receives shoes that do not fit correctly. 

NB: Church and Barker sizes are often found printed under the tongue of the shoe.

Below is a comparison size chart for Barker and Church ladies' shoes with the equivalent UK and Continental sizing.

Sellers:  Taking a minute or two to find the equivalent size could save your buyers a lot of frustration - resulting in fewer returns, better feedback and higher DSRs
