Translation:This pair of leather shoes is on sale.

"This pair of leather shoes is on sale." Where I come from, 99% of people will say 'are' rather than 'is'. This pedantic version of English isn't even used by BBC news presenters/readers. It smacks of the 'never end a sentence with a preposition' brigade. When one of these corrected Churchill for ending a sentence with a preposition Churchill's ironic riposte was: "This is the type of arrant pedantry up with which I will not put." (There are many versions of this quote but they all end with the same nonsensical last few words.)
