Thanks. What are the pros and cons of each?

@ tavoz, these are the lowered block heel. On other configurations I think the regular block heel looks a bit funny/chunky. I felt that by lowering it and adding the double leather sole, it would even out the overall look. I actually have another pair on the way, same configuration but with no cap toe and close trim.
Jack -- I'm looking at getting some HH SDs and think yours look great, although I am leaning toward the Cuban heel. Are yours the standard SD last? Since you are getting another pair with no cap toe and close trim, are you doing that because you think the boots would look better in that configuration, or just for variety? Everyone I show pictures of your boots (me included) really like the addition of the toe caps, and the standard trim looks great too. On the other hand, I haven't been wearing your boots for 3 months like you have, and none of us has seen your boots in person. Is there any way for you to show your boots in complete profile to get a better idea of what they look like with your sole/heel combination? Many thanks.
I have somewhat wide and flat feet. I got the commando mini-lug half sole with the regular height heel and they're great. The mini-lug half sole adds around 1/2" to the forefoot so it makes the arch-ease less pronounced. You can also get them with the heel lowered 1/4" to do something similar, which is what is recommended for people with low arches / flat feet.
