Kensington Pre-Order

As you may know, American Duchess's new line of 18th century shoes, "Kensington", are on pre-order.  I like them even more than the Devonshires: I think some of it's the red, but some of it's the pointier toe (which is odd, as I normally like very round-toed shoes).  I'm actually kind of glad that my shoes are slightly anachronistic - they tie rather than buckle - so that if it someday becomes economically feasible I can have a good reason to get a pair of these!
