Toes should be able to move. You mentioned your size difference between R and L is about 1/4 size.Maybe size up by half and put a thin leather insock to the smaller foot side is a good idea. From another view point,EG loosens up quite easily in my experience. Foot bed sinks and create more rooms, but I think toes should freely move from the day 1. Good luck.
I see what you mean. It is very straight shaped and short nose. No ergonomic curve. Having said that it fits me OK.I have a rather narrow feet. I thought 32 Dover is MTO only and almost all are now 606.
Hi. I have the same model with different color and rubber sole. (I think this version is Japan only model). In my opinion, it does stretch. I got a very snag fit one but after careful break-in and 5 times wearing, it becomes totally OK.
