    Y'up, and the fact he has previously sold AE prototypes on EBay is what got me to wondering if this is on the horizon.

    Right. I had the same thought. Wasn't the shell Kenilworth a special makeup somewhere for a huge mark up - like in the $700 range?

    Wow those are near perfect for a casual/ business casual shoe. If those were an E width and had a generous return policy, I mightve jumped. These and the custom makeup shell delrays posted earlier in this thread would render me helpless if they ever made it to general production (seconds of course [​IMG])

    Yeah, Freemans Sporting Club sells them for $780:

    As an aside, I love the suede Macneil with the contrasting natural welt they have. I wish AE would offer something like that directly.

    According to the auction details, this pair is from a cancelled special order. If they were production samples, they should be size 9D, so I don't think AE is necessarily offering shell Kenilworths in their catalog soon. I think they should though, as shell Kenilworths should be fairly popular, I'd think.

    I just jumped on these. I've been really admiring that Freemans Sporting Club pair for a while, so needless to say I'm quite excited. Thanks for the heads up!

    BTW, I'm an 8.5D in the Strand, but the one 8.5D calf Kenilworth I tried on may've been a tad big for me. If these don't work out for me, I hope I can find them a home amongst you all.

    That is a handsom shoe! Congrats! I'd love to see a black shell version.

    Thanks, GOP! So this was sent by postal mail....I thought it was an email blast so I was perturbed when the only received AE email was an invitation to meet the Knicks coach at the new 43rd St. store in Manhattan.

    [​IMG]Uh...wearing my waterproof corrected-grain bicycle-toe Rockports today in case it rains. Don't want water on my AEs and not interviewing.
    At least they're shiny.

    Sounds like you need a nice pair of Horween leather shoes, any CXL or shell. Get yourself a pair of ankle boots made out of CXL, and you'll never have to worry about the rain and ahving to wear corrected-grain shoes again.

    Congrats! Shell Kenilworth was my dream for a while. I still love my shell leeds but sleeker ptb would be great addition.
