Luckily a hardware swap should be pretty darn quick.  Hope it's not too long!
Except you're the only one who seems to be unilaterally disliked.  Prior to you, this was a very congenial community of people who would happily exchange info and opinions without constant mention of the same dumb products or a constant tone of unwarranted cockiness.  The only helpful post I've ever seen you make was about leather thickness, and that was both a long time ago, and 1 of 230 posts that you've made.  When you're at less than 0.5% helpful, that doesn't bode...
Sorry...yes, I should've said "block" heel. To me, the lowered block feels normal.  I have taller heeled boots (logger boots, steel toed, etc), but they just never feel natural to me.   I find the standard block heel on White's to look a bit too big (look at the Snake Oil Provisions collab boot to see what I mean), and seems to really throw off the balance.  It's just huge. The lowered block heel is still a tad taller than a RW Beckman...actually, let me just take a photo...
I'd be slow to go with the lowered cuban heel.  The general consensus on here is that the cuban heel should be left at it's stock height (for both aesthetic and functional reasons), and that the lowered cuban is less than ideal.  I've lowered all of my standard heels and will continue to do so, but I don't think I would lower a cuban heel.
Scam.  Don't buy.
Isn't it amazing he feels the need to mention that?  I've talked to White's and Baker's many times...yet I don't feel the need to mention a phone call to try (and fail) to make myself sound important.  Napoleon complex in full effect, me thinks.
They're 9" BH in smooth distressed.  Lined (was not by intent...but I don't really mind it), antique hooks and eyes with a set of eyes at the top, single celastic, plain toe, close trim, Vibram 430, natural edge, block heel lowered 1/4", cut top, pull loop. Here's an album I posted a while back with more photos.  If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.  These are likely my favorite boots, although they've developed a squeak at the back of the heel on the...
Wow.  That's mind-blowing.  Lots of photographers in this world...not a whole lot who shoot what we shoot!  Feel free to PM me with your website, as I'd really love to see your work.  Always great to see other peoples work, and I'm sure you could teach me a thing or two.
100%.  I'm an architectural photographer, so I'm often on job sites or sitting in the woods in a puddle of water (or worse) to get a strong exterior image, yet I have to be able to interact with homeowners (of multi-million dollar homes) and builders/architects/art directors/editors/etc.  That's why I love my White's and Nick's so much.  I also spend a lot of time outdoors (camping, hiking, adventuring, exploring), so my White's and Nick's really hold up well to my...
To be honest, I'm not 100% sure.  I ordered the boot from Vermilyea Pelle before Nick's even announced/named the "Robert," so I just don't know.  It's on the HNW last and has a lowered heel, and for some reason that means Nick's uses a lot less height in their arch-ease than they do on their other boots (I don't find that to be the case as much on the semi-dress last), so that's a tiny bit disappointing...but there's certainly still some support there.  Aside from that, my...
