About The Tulipe
"Wouldn't it be great if people could get to live suddenly as often as they die suddenly?" -Katharine Hepburn
The Tulipe – all about details: classically fit, materialistically fun, comfortably flattering. Built on a 2" wrapped heel, arch-supported insole with PORON® cushioning, adjustable Mary Jane strap, and a leather sole with an inset rubber traction pad. This shoe is inspired by the glamor and elegance of the 1940's and built with the latest technology and functionality to live life to the fullest in day-to-evening comfort bliss.

The Tulipe Features Poron® Foam for added comfort
The Poron Material makes for a customized, total contact fit and provides excellent shock absorption to help comfort joints and soft tissue. These materials are working to offer you even pressure distribution to aid in support and stability.
The unique properties of Poron Cushioning allow this material to continually rebound to its original form, so you get a custom fit during each use.
Inset traction pad is functional, without sacraficing style.
During the summer of 2004 at the start of the ANYI LU business, Anyi slipped down her wooden staircase while pregnant due to the hard leather bottoms of her shoes. Thankfully she and the baby were fine, and the incident ensured every shoe design from then on included proper traction. While we still use polished Cuoio leather for our soles, most styles include an injection-molded rubber traction pad. Rather than glued on, our traction pad is fused to the leather which prevents slipping and adds to the longevity of the shoe.
