For those who have ordered directly from EG, did you have to pay this tax? If so, how much was it, and are there ways to avoid it?

I believe EG is obliged to declare the full value of the shoes on the customs declaration form.
Well, it depends on where you live, and the tax laws of your country. For instance, HK is a free port. So I do not think that someone resident in HK will need to pay any tax on EGs shipped to HK. Some other countries have an exemption limit, for which any amount below that limit is not subject to tax.
