 I will say that I am very happy with my lowered block heel, and I highly recommend it.  Looks great, and functions well for walking (for me).  Oh, and I would say to order through Bakers and ask them to sand down the heel closer to flush, so as to avoid the large heel shelf that White's is notorious for with the block heel. I am pretty pleased with the black CXL, which has held up probably better than I expected (after a year of regular but not hard wear); but if I had to...
