I'm looking for a pair of burgundy cordovan oxfords. I tried on a couple of pairs at allen edmonds on a recent trip to NYC. I found some nice looking shoes but I found the heels a bit chunky I guess. I'm 6'6" so I have always gravitated to italian loafers which don't boost my already somewhat awkward height (sounds weird perhaps).
Having a new pair resoled to a different heel height, would that be sacrilege and destroy the look of the shoe? Would a bespoke shoemaker be able to accommodate such a request or would they laugh in my face?
Would appreciate any advice/options.
