If the Dragonborn has not given Aela the Huntress her shield, Aela's Shield, during the quest "Take Up Arms" for the Companions, the game will register all Steel Shields as Aela's shield, therefore not allowing one to remove them from your inventory. Placing the shield on a shield display in one's house seems to allow one to remove them from their inventory.
