numbering system of shoe sizes (see Table 1)
Table 1: Comparison of UK, US and continental adult shoe sizes
• UK: There is a 8.5-mm difference in the length of the shoe between each full shoe size, and a half-size difference adds 4.25 mm to the length; children's shoes are sized from 0 (102mm long) to 13; adult shoes are sized from 1 (8.5mm longer than a child's size 13) to 13
• USA: There is a 8.5-mm difference in the length of the shoe between each full shoe size, and a half-size difference adds 4.25 mm to the length; shoe sizes are based on a child's size 0 of 100 mm long (that is, 1/12-inch shorter than the UK size 0; women's shoes are marked up 1.5 sizes greater than the UK length equivalent, and men's by 1 size greater than the UK equivalent)
• Continental: The length difference between each full size is 6.6 mm, known as the Paris point, with 3 Paris points in each 2 cm of shoe length

I am assuming the science of graphology could be applied to the game's notation system even though it only contains the lower case letters a to h, plus x to denote captures, numbers one to eight, capital letters K, Q, R, N, B - oh, and if you are very lucky the # symbol for checkmate.
