The heel may differ on the CT version of the shoe, but also in the photo of the Tweed 2, the angle is was shot from shows the profile of the heel where the rubber insert would be"”so, the heel in that photo may be full or an insert, no way to tell without a bottom view, which Loake does not provide.
If there is still some question, someone can always email CT or Loake.
