V59: New “Kensington” 18th Century Leather Shoes in Black and Red

Last week I asked you all for your help in deciding what color Kensingtons to release first.  All three colors (black, red, and ivory) are the goal, but we just can’t run all three at once right now, so those of you who voted for ivory, you’ll have to hold on just a smidge longer, but they *are* coming.

In the meantime, red and black Kensies are opening for pre-order on March 5th, and we’re offering them for the super awesome price of $99, instead of the regular $120.  We don’t need to collect quite as many orders this time to run the style, but we do still need support, so if you or a friend are in the market for some snazzy new 18th century shoes, and you want to get the low price, be sure to place your order on March 5th, or in the couple of weeks following, at www.american-duchess.com.

Okay, without further ado, more pictures!

You may be wondering how Kensington and Devonshire differ.  Kensington is a narrower shoe, with a far more pointed toe.  While Devonshire and Kensington share the 1.75 inch French heel, Kensington features rounded latchets and tongue, and also a straight seam on the side instead of a dog-leg.  Both Kensington and Devonshire are historically accurate for the dates 1760s-1780s.

And of course, Kensies comes in black and red!
