I love the overall simplistic look of the boot, but I would change a few things to really make it a show stopping piece. I would keep the heel 100%. The design and measurements of the heel are perfect, Its almost like a fancy minimalist square coffee table. In addition to this the overall shape is fantastic,but would even better with some indented lines in the leather, giving it more depth yet keeping with the simple design. The zipper, bigger than a usual one, also offers a great balance design wise.
In case you are wondering these are Jeffrey Campbell Boots.
