    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Kenilworth Plain-Toe Blucher is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 136.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good-looking I got a pair of these in Bourbon, size 10 D, when they were on sale; I liked them so much I tried to get a pair in brown but they had sold out. The only other pair I have in the 65 last are a pair of McAllisters; this pair is a little more roomy in the forefoot, which I gather tends to be the case with Blucher-style shoes built on the same last as a Balmoral - the Blucher will tend to be roomier. Other than that, the shoe fits similarly to the McAllisters. These may be a bit plain compared to other AE shoes, and maybe at full price they seemed too expensive for such a simple-looking shoe. I admit that if they hadn't been on sale I probably wouldn't have bought them. But the simplicity is what I like about them, and what attracted me to them in the first place. I thought they might be versatile, in that you could dress up or down with them. I was right. The simplicity lets you do either. The Bourbon color is gorgeous; I've worn them with light and dark blue suits and light and dark gray pants. Slacks, Sportcoats, Jeans. Now that I've got a pair, I'm sad they're no longer offered!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking shoe. This is great looking Oxford shoe. I was pleased with the look out of the box, and they look very good with dress pants. As others have said they do squeak some, but I'm hoping that will go away in time. They were quite comfortable the first time I wore them which was for 8 hours straight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect, but a very nice style. I love this plain-toe 3-hole derby. This style, to me, is perfect for a casual shoe. I ordered these shoes in a 9D when normally I would wear a 9.5D or 10C. Since they were on closeout and only 9D was available, and since I read that these run long, I thought I'd give it a shot. They are a little tight on the outside toes but fit ok. I have not experienced any of the bowing at the ankle that others have mentioned. Perhaps this may have been an issue if I had gotten a larger size. The pair that I got has a couple of minor defects, stray stitching, a clump of glue in the insole, and what looks like a teeny bit of seperation between the welt and the sole in one spot. This is my first pair of AEs and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to expect them to be absolutely perfect, but they are still the nicest shoes I own. I'll definitely be going a size up on my next pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe This is my first pair of Allen Edmonds and I am very impressed with the looks, the obvious quality and the comfort. I am so impressed that I just ordered a pair of black derby shoes as well. I look forward to receiving them so I have a brown and a black pair of Allen Edmonds.

    how do you get the lacing to lie flat on the top as shown in the picture

    I know there is a trick lacing pattern to get that sleek look. Do I skip lace (one to second grommet) other to third?
    Asked by: original tanman
    The Kenilworth is laced this way only for display purposes, however you can achieve a similar look by using the following lacing method: 1. Begin straight across on the outside and in through the bottom eyelets. 2. The left end runs straight up on the inside, then straight across on the outside. 3. The right end runs diagonally up and left on the inside, then straight across on the outside. Repeat with alternate ends until one end reaches the top left eyelet. 4. The remaining end runs straight up on the inside and out through the top right eyelet. If you require further assistance, please feel free to contact our online customer service team at eservice@allenedmonds.com or 1-877-817-7615 (Mon-Fri 7:00AM-8PM CST).

    Is this shoe entirely made of full grain leather?

    Asked by: DanD1982
    Yes, the Kenilworth, like most of our footwear, is handcrafted using the finest full grain leather we can source. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Is this a shoe you can wear with jeans or is it more designed to go with a suit?

    Asked by: Mike
    The Kenilworth is considered to be a dress shoe because the lack or adornment and elongated silhouette makes it the perfect style for suits and tuxedos. However, as men’s fashion rules change, there is much more flexibility in how men dress and how one pairs their shoes with their attire. The Kenilworth can certainly be worn with dress/casual outfits, specially in the walnut leather because it tends to be a more versatile color. If you want to wear the walnut Kenilworth with jeans, consider coordinating it with the matching belt, a white dress shirt, and a charcoal blazer for example. Another way to wear it would be with dark wash jeans, a blue shirt, and khaki blazer. Ultimately, what each individual chooses to pair their Allen Edmonds with is their own decision; we encourage customers to wear what they feel most comfortable in. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    I see these are on clearance. If I were to buy a pair, would they be able to be recrafted in a decade?

    Asked by: Bret
    Yes, the re-crafting service re-uses the existing uppers. Even with full re-crafting, the sole, heel & insole will all be replaced - the uppers will be reconditioned and re-finished/polished. This is what makes a Goodyear welted shoe such high value, it can be reconditioned either by AE or a quality cobbler.

    Will this product line be renewed?

    The plain Kenilworth shoe is fantastic in walnut and can go with so many styles. I want to order my second pair.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. At this time there are no plans to reintroduce the Kenilworth into our current collection, and therefore it is limited to the sizes and width currently available online. However, we suggest checking out our Carlyle style which is a balmoral but also features a plain toe and it is offered in the walnut leather. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. Allen Edmonds Customer Service

    Has the bowing problem been solved.

    These look like very nice shoes, but it seems like a lot of people have the problem of bowing below the ankle. Has that been addressed?

    can I use an orthotic in these shoes?

    can I use an orthotic in any shoes that are not labeled "orthotic". I tried a pair of park avenues and it didnt seem quite right-- heel was loose...
    Asked by: Randy
    Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds. The Kenilworth and Park Avenue styles were not manufactured with an orthotic fit in mind. We only manufacture a select number of styles with our removable footbed. As well, Allen Edmonds Replacement Orthotic Insoles are designed for a select number of styles which feature removable orthotics. You can find the complete Allen Edmonds Orthotic Collection of shoes by clicking here: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/cati2_Shoes_1_40000000001_-1_______130259_subcategory?. Keep in mind though, if the shoe is fit large enough, orthotic inserts can be used in almost any of our shoes. Depending on your foot shape and preferred fit, typically we recommend ordering a size up. The best way to get a proper fit with your orthotic inserts is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Kenilworth Shoe Appearance - Fit

    Why in the two photos provided under reviews for this shoe does it appear that the outside of the opening has a gaping opening or cupping. The photos are not very flattering. I like the appearance of the shoe until it is on a foot in these photos. Do you see what I mean? It's a serious question because I was about to buy them online from another web site. Im not interested in having my question posted. Just looking for an answer for myself. Thank you.
    Asked by: Kevin
    Know the width of your foot before purchasing. I had mine measured, ordered the correct size, and have had nothing but compliments. This shoe will bow, however, if you buy the wrong size. I tried it on in Nordstrom with a regular D width and it was way to big.
