Thanks so much for these pics. Very helpful.
BTW, what leathers are these?
what are you referring to?
I'm not sure it's the swing last so much as it is the combination with a single leather sole and lowered heel. The top of the boot looks as though it's crushing the bottom, an effect that would not occur with a double leather sole and a standard heel height. If one were set on the sole combination being as is, I would agree with Slab that the lowest profile last would be ideal.
