Here's a comparison of my slightly elevated heels with the Cuban heels. Mine have essentially a vertical drop, whereas the Cubans appear to angle forward a bit.

ME, adding that 4mm threw your chukka off balance with the ball of the foot/ball line being lifted up.

medtech, you've some smart pairs there! Wear them in health! I especially like the strong shape on the instep.

I can't recall if this SC 2012 workroom video has been shared on this thread already, but here we go:

Chukkas look great Eddie! I will probably order a pair as well at the StC trunk show in Stockholm beginning May.

What are the modfications you have done on the Classic last, slightly elongated I believe? Anything else?

why is SC making sad heels again?

if you look at
where the upper
meets the heel
from the back

it looks from the photos
as if the inner (arch) side
is much higher
than the other

so it looks
to me like
sadface
or
sad eyebrows

i got that part.

 

was asking why SC making a twisted heel.

I think that might be because it follows the human leg contour better? I know for one I tend to finish my sole in that slanted (sad face) way on my other shoes which has flat heels to begin with

I don't know where I'd wear these, but I saw them in person and fell in love.  Must.... resist.....

Well in my case (and many others i believe) , I tend to finish my sole with the sad face in the opposite direction. So it seems odd to create a shoe that does not start off from a neural stance. Is there a clarification from StC on this matter?
