About The Adrian
"Enemies are so stimulating." -Katharine Hepburn

Built on a 1 1/2" XL Extralight air injected outsole with a hand-stitched sacchetto PORON® cushioned insole, instep strap with pushpin closure and side zipper for easy wearability, this shoe will stimulate a passion for adventure.

HIGH-END PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY MEETS COUTURE FASHION WITH XL EXTRALIGHT, VIBRAM, AND MICRO
Traditional materials such as heavy rubber lack give, wear down too quickly and can cause foot fatigue. Therefore, Anyi sources various high performance materials to make her shoes lighter, cushier and longer-lasting.
Vibram was originally designed in the 1930’s for mountaineering and continues to be used for specialized sporting footwear.
XL Extralight, another resilient sole material, is currently also used by the automotive and marine industries for shock absorption.
And MICRO, which makes up our wedge heels, is a material injected with hundreds of bubbles for reduced weight and increased give.
SACCHETTO CONSTRUCTION CREATES A GLOVE-LIKE FIT
Italian for “little bag,” sacchetto construction is a rare old-world shoemaking art practiced by only a few factories in Italy. It requires the painstaking technique of hand-stitching the lining and the insole together and then sewing the whole piece to the upper before shaping on a last for days. Much like the process of wearing two socks while hiking to avoid blisters, the inner sock molds to the foot and moves independently from the outer shoe leather allowing for an unparalleled fit.
Select styles of ANYI LU shoes are sewn using a unique type of sacchetto construction, which offers unmatched flexibility and a supportive fit that cradles the foot in comfort.
