HI All. I purchased this pair of Viberg's (my 5th pair) on Grailed and have never had to deal with a heel issue. These re-done heels, by previous owner, are a 1/4 inch higher than my other boots and wow, they are too high for my walk. Besides feeling too high they cause my feet to push forward and get crushed in the toebox. Please let me know what I should be doing about this? I'm sure a cobbler can fix but I'd like to approach one with some knowledge about what I should be asking. Also, what the costs generally are for this procedure. Thanks in advance.
Definitely looks like a do-it-yourself hack job

Looks like a weird uneven midsole, in addition to the high heel. I would send them to Viberg for a full resole.

That’s an “There, I fixed it” candidate for sure.

I’d send them to Pekin Shoe repair. Nick is easy to work with and his rates are super reasonable
