My block heel on my SD is standard height. I also agree my 6 inch boots lock my heel in better then these SDs. The heel sleep is better than when I got them but I am still feeling it when I tie my boots, especially in the morning. Once my foot swells a little and expands by lunch time, the slip is less. Not much I can do I guess. I wanted a lighter boot which is why I got this set up in SD form and because I already have 6 inch workboots on Vibram 100s. Seemed silly to get BHs at that point. I'm not unhappy though, just hoping the heel settles in the more I use them.thanks. Would love to see what the boots with the combo 100 sole and Quabaug heel cap look like. I’m also more a fan of the block heel on SDs, and in general, so I think a lowered block heel with the 100 heel cap would probably look fine. Is your block heel preference standard height or lowered? TBH I don’t feel a huge difference between the two (it is only a 1/4”) but lowered seem marginally more comfortable for a lot of walking, which is what I’ll probably be doing, mainly on pavement, in this new pair, hence my other question about honey vs. regular vibram sole. The standard black 100 sole I have on one pair is actually softer than the 430 sole so that’ll probably be comfortable enough
Now my decision is whether to get SDs or 6” BHs in distressed RO, toecap or no toecap. I love the more minimalist SD look, but the BH seem to lock my heel down better.
