I just received Kenilworths off ebay, and I have two questions:
1) has anyone here noticed the weird lump under the ball of your foot? I saw someone posted a review on the AE website noting the same problem. Its almost like you can feel the shank or something
2) there is a crack on the back heel tab. Should I color it in with meltonian, or should I return the shoes? They were pretty cheap and are in spotless condition otherwise:
If the shoes do not feel like a great fit now, then they will not improve. And if there is a noticeable lump under your foot, that may cause more harm to your foot over time. For these reasons, I would return them - and not the cosmetic issues. (Every AE pair I have purchased came with that great fit and ready to wear - with no break-in time)
However - the picture you posted of the heel does not look like a Kenilworth to me. I went to eBay to look at the "completed sales" within the last 2 months - and the photos of the heels appear of a different style than of the one you posted.
Below are some photos of what the Kenilworth heels look like (which is unique):
A Thrift Store purchase? Dare I ask how much?
Web Gems anyone:
