    There's no reason you couldn't have them reheeled with a lower heel, however that would potentially throw off the shoe. Most dress shoes have a bit of "rocker" built into them, that is, the toe is slightly higher than the midfoot. By lowering the heel, you'd be increasing the angle of the rocker, which could result in an uncomfortable shoe. Of course, reheeling it back to a taller heel would be a simple job.

    Those look great and look to be broken in very comfortably. I think I may have to investigate purchasing a pair for the fall.

    They are very similar fit wise with the Marlow being tighter overall. And, because it's lined, it doesn't give like the unlined BB cordo penny. In short, I had them in the same size but eventually had to go up 1/2 as my toes were cramped too much. Up 1/2 for me.

    They sell them in some of the shops. I think all of the men's stores carry it. It's a great boot, though.

    Ask for the product code on the inside of the shoe. A little buffing, and they should look very nice.
