    i can not seem to find any markings on the inside.. the only thing i see is on the sole part where i mentiond it said shewlma and 5L i cna see where it looks like their was a cloth makers tag sewn on the inside but it has been removed.. i think this is the spot but im only going off of other pictuers iv seen on the forum
