I have a pair of these in 7.5, they are, in fact, EG Malverns made private-label for Nordstrom.

I also got a pair of those once. They squeaked like crazy, and they smelled like grape candy. No joke. Really strong fake grape smell. I flipped them to a Japanese Ebayer who apparently love them.

Mine don't squeak, but I know that smell. What is it? The tanning on the Scottish calf leather?

Anyone concerned with foot fungus on this forum? It seems that used shoes trade is very popular here. I am not knocking anyone, but simply asking if fungus is of concern when one acquires used shoes? Is it really safe to buy old shoes for 20.00 when you taking a chance of getting fungus that would stay with you for the rest of your life or require months of toxic medication?
It would be on my mind for sure.

I for one am not concerned, not only do you wear socks when buying most of these shoes, but if you're really worried you can spray them down with an anti-fungal spray or disinfectant when you receive them.

Don't give it a second thought! If you're in any way concerned, just give the used shoes a thorough spray treatment with a disinfectant (like Lysol, or some product designed specifically to clean and disinfect shoes)--perhaps scrubbing the lining and insole with it using a brush. You could then rub in some isopropyl alcohol to the lining and insole, and finally restore moisture to the leather with a leather conditioner, letting it stand for an hour or so and then wiping off any excess so that your socks don't get greasy. Although I'm not an epidemiologist, it seems very unlikely that any bad guys like fungus could survive all that!

Ever gone bowling? Or roller/ice skating? Rented ski boots or snowboard stuff? Rock climbing?

Nope, long over. Once upon a time, EG also did private label for Cole Haan.
