Are these real JM Weston shoes?

Hello everyone. I have been reading SF for a quite long time, although this is my first post. I just bought a pair of shoes (via an auction site) and would like to ask if these shoes are original JM Westons, or maybe fake ones? They are black suede oxfords.

I started to be suspicious when I read the inscriptions written on the insole - "MADEINLONDON MODELEPROTEGE"; the second part is printed without French apostrophs. The sole, however, reads "Made in France" (so why London?). The sole is made of three layers and the bottom is rubber. Inside the shoe, there is an inscription "2062-A3 42" (42 denotes the size).

I am not a shoe expert (although I have two pairs of really good shoes, so I have some reference point) but the shoes look really nice and solid. The shape is also fine. Both the heel and the front of the shoe are stiffened. So, if this is an imitation, this would anyway be a careful work.

Since I can return the shoes, I would like to know your opinions. Thanks.
