How can I describe these shoes better?

I have a pair of shoes listed which are exactly like converse but they're made by Faith. I've described them as 'round toe lace up shoes' and stated the colour, make and size. They've had hardly any views and only one watcher so far. Any ideas what else I can put in the title to get more lookers?!

Converse style, then you get all the people putting "converse" in their search.

I thought that wasn't allowed and that it'd be removed if someone complains.

Indith Thu 11-Nov-10 17:04:50

Oh, I don't know then. Don't ebay much at all so didn't realise it wasn't allowed.

I remember doing something similar years ago and the item got pulled.

Maybe someone will spot them nearer to their finish time. smile

Do not put Converse style you get your listing pulled for keyword spamming.

Arent they baseball boots?

classydiva Thu 11-Nov-10 18:48:30

Can I see them what colour? I like Rocket Dog baseball boots so if they a size five I might bid!

I got something pulled a month ago due to say monsoon type dress, had to do some reading and was tested on it before j could use my account again. Also told repeating the offence would be treated more seriously. Wouldn't mind but was selling a dress I bought from dbay that is clearly fake so had put in my descriptionvery clearly all of this and some knob reported me.

Classy - that is my listing!! grin

LoveBeing - that sounds like quite a harsh punishment! I come across loads of listings with '?????-style' in the title - have you ever searched for a Buggy Snuggle? There are loads of listings with 'Buggy' and 'Snuggle' randomly placed in the title for an item that isn't a Buggy Snuggle!

Anyway, I will have a look through other listings to see what other words I could use that are within the rules and will get more people looking.

I'd definitely add the word 'trainers', that's what i'd be searching for.
To me, 'pumps' are low-heeled formal shoes. Possibly suitable for a tea dance grin

classydiva Fri 12-Nov-10 11:56:18

I call them pumps, Rocket Dog do similar and I love them, so always look for Rocket Dog Pumps.

Someone might be looking for Faith Pumps!

They arent really trainers.

Mogs I know I found it!

mogs0 Fri 12-Nov-10 13:39:35

Could I add both 'pumps' and 'trainers' to cover all possible searches? Someone might spot the photo and decide they want to bid massive amounts on them!! grin I still only have 1 watcher so I'm sure anything would help!

mogs0 Sat 13-Nov-10 16:16:37

They have a bid now so panic over grin. Still only one watcher so I'm not expecting a bidding war in the final minutes!!

My listing once got pulled for having BuggySnuggle in the title even though it was a buggy snuggle due to 'copyright' hmm

Strange ebay!
