About The Tulipe
A sling-back Mary Jane pump in unique textured Italian leather
The Tulipe is our most iconic shoe, and for good reason. It exudes sophistication but with a bit of fun. Pair it with a pencil skirt for work, pants for running around town, or a flirty dress for dinner and dancing. Built on a 2 1/4" leather-wrapped heel, it has an arch-supported insole with PORON® cushioning, soft Nappa leather lining, adjustable Mary Jane strap, and a leather sole with an inset rubber traction pad. This shoe is inspired by the glamour 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.
Made in Italy.

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.
