So incredibly confused about Mia's
Ok,
So I got a pair of CL Mia's the other week and noticed that they don't have the 'Paris' on the inside sole of the shoe, assuming they were fake, which I was assured were bought from NAP, I googled the Mia's. I noticed that the Mia does in fact not have the 'Paris' on them. I guess my question is why? And are there any other things that set it apart from other Loubs. Also, I got them in patent leather, I read somewhere that they are only different from the Simples because they were suede. Im so confused! Someone please help!

Thanks ladies! I almost flew into a full-fledged panic attack thinking they were fakes. So weird how there are differences between CL's. This begs my next question...After viewing the CL thread "what not to look for" and noticing the vast differences there can be, i.e. sole color, font, etc..how do you differentiate a fake from an authentic Loub? I am not asking for specifics (don't want fakers learning any more tricks) but just in general. TIA!

You get used to noticing certain things as you become more familiar with them.
