Red dog/brown bull hide?
No,never hurt an ankle. I do, however, have a problem with gout right now with the right foot which is why I think it's so much harder to get into the right boot. My right foot is bigger than the left one right now. Probably not a good time to be breaking in new, expensive MTO boots that mold to your feet but if I have problems down the road I'll deal with it then. The work boots are starting to feel better every day although still tighter all the way around than the SJ's. The SJ's are just slightly loose in the heel with medium weight socks. I bought some heavyweights today and the SJ's are perfect with them which is no big deal since the SJ's will be worn mostly in the winter.
Honestly, I think it always looks way more pronounced in photos than it does on the foot with White's. I have other boots where the Cuban Heel is pretty damned obvious when I'm wearing them, but it's pretty subtle on my Bounty Hunters. It's noticeable, but it doesn't really look out of place.
Ok...modified makeup based on feedback and discussions
I dig it, but my vote is a full Cuban heel or a lowered block heel.
