If I understand this correctly. Steve designed the shoe. Right? If thats correct, it's his insight, vision and, talent that got you interested in this pair of shoes. I'm not aware of Steve's arrangement with E.G. That's none of my business. But, if he spent his time and incorporated his experience developing the shoe, Just pay for it, as you were willing to do.

I recently read a great book, designated to be a movie (I hope). It's titled "The Deeds Of My Fathers" Written by Paul Pope, the son of Gene Pope who founded The National Enquirer.

Strictly fashion intended. If there were any valuable construction or quality features they would have mentioned them. In style until they set new fashions for the public to buy. Woman's marketing technique but no value in the Men's market. Thanks to the OP for posting though.

If you were interviewing the CEO or a top executive from a high-grade Men's apparel company, what questions would ask them?
Happy Canada Day. It would be a good idea to use a non-silicone waterproof. Even though you don't plan to wear them in the rain, treating them will give you a little protection against an accidental spilage. Also try to avoid wearing them with jeans. The denim will stain the leather.
