Kensington imperfects are the small percentage of shoes that have small defects and don't meet our tough quality requirements that arrived in our latest shipment.

These imperfections are cosmetic only. For ivory Kensingtons, the imperfections include minor marks in the leather, or discoloration of the leather. The shoes are otherwise structurally perfect. Sometimes the shoe box may be damaged.

If a few bumps and scrapes don't bother you, here is your chance to own a pair of Kensingtons for a fraction of the price.

The Kensingtons are closely based on extant examples of shoes from the 1770s through the 1780s, and are perfect for both outdoor and indoor costume events.

Returns and exchanges: You may return "imperfect" shoes for absolutely any reason at all within 30 days of receipt for your choice of store credit or refund. See our Returns and Exchanges policy and Safe Shopping Guarantee for more information. Due to the limited stock and fast turnover of "imperfects" we are not usually able to provide exchanges.
