The strongest opinion and debate on Whites understandably seems to be heel configs with regards to looks and function/ comfort.
All I can really say is that the standard height does seem to feel more correct when it's on but I personally don't feel that the lowered feels wrong in any way. Once the leather "arch ease" settles to your foot shape I would still say it's the most glove like supportive boot I've worn.
In terms of looks, it's all preference but on me I like the lowered block more, don't feel I can carry off the Cuban as well as some others I've seen, plus I like low profile boots, they go with a lot more leg wear IMO.
Just my tuppence worth as we'd say.
