Nice boots! 1/4 lowered?
post #559 of 4505

yes, -1/4".  When it comes time for a resole, I think im going to do a full 430 sole with normal height.

^'afraid the half-sole + slanted heels + 1/4" lowering = not a good idea. i thought the half-sole + 1/4" lowering on "Swing" last & blocked heels were a sound combination ... & it felt that way when i 1st got them. there was almost zero break in time due to the upturned toe of the swing last. but, later i realized there's something OFF__ aesthetically, as well as utility-wise.

i don't know if it's actual or just visual, but it seems there's a significant change on boots when you combine the half-soles + 1/4" lowering options. when it's time for re-heel, i'm planning to bring them up by 1/4" [to standard] & gun for a slight heel taper like on the Viberg boots.
