Welcome. The AE's aren't fake. I had a similar pair of patent leathers that were bought at retail.
I believe yours are these: https://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds-Kendall-Oxford-Patent/dp/B000H18TXW?ie=UTF8&tag=vglnk-c2405-20
I appreciate the welcome. I followed the link, mine have six pairs of eyelets instead of two but the no-model-name logo on the red background is exactly the same. Maybe I just have the older version? Anyways, now I'm significantly more sure that they're not fake. Thanks for the help.
