Wondering if it's the finish, treatment, the leather itself or did the leather get wet somewhere along the line and is moldy?

Any experience with this?

This is one of the reasons I spend thousands of these type of shoes, I love that smell! If any of my expensive and good quality leather shoes did not have that smell I would be quite upset LOL.

I have ahd similar experiences with EG and St. Crispin's have an extremely strong leather odor when they newly arrive.

I wouldn't sweat it for a minute.

This is the hardest EG last to fit correctly. Strangely non-anatomical.


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.

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.
