"Marshalls, Inc., is a chain of American department stores owned by TJX Companies. Marshalls has over 750 conventional stores, as well as larger stores named Marshalls Mega Store, covering 42 states and Puerto Rico. Marshalls expanded into Canada in March 2011. Marshalls is the U.S.'s second largest off-price family apparel and home fashion retailer, behind its sister company, T.J. Maxx." Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshalls
"As of April 2010, the Ralph Lauren Corporation operated a total of 179 full-price stores, 171 factory stores, and 281 "concessions-based shop-within-shops" - a total of 631 locations worldwide. The figure reflects retail operations for all of the company's brands across various locations throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Oceania". Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polo_Ralph_Lauren
So, yes the shoes are authentic, otherwise Marshall's and TJX would have a lot of legal infringement problems with Ralph Lauren, since both are large and well known companies.
Ralph Lauren sells men, women and children shoes under several Lauren brand names such as: Lauren, Layette, Polo Ralph Lauren, Purple Label, RLX, and RRL. Ref: http://www.ralphlauren.com/search/summary.jsp?kw=s...

More than likely yes. If they were a knockoff they'd have some weird brand name...Like the BOB shoes to the TOM shoes. And plus, I've seen Marshall's sell converse, and they were real. So I'm assuming yours are too

My wife and I have discovered this amazing web site and picked up one there. Not fully impressive with the shipment speed but did save money around 75% and joyful to find this. The quality is actually superior and also right until now never spot any issues.Source(s): http://www.premiumsoutlets.com/ralph-lauren
