About The Maria
The Maria exudes sophisticated elegance with a bit of fun. It's incredibly stable 2 ½ inch heel makes it feel as if you're not wearing a heel at all. The strap over the instep opens up completely for a very custom fit while the front strap graduates in width giving you more coverage over the smaller toes. Details such as contrast piping and metallic pops combined with arch support and PORON® cushioning make the Maria the perfect blend of fashion and function
Made in Italy.

The Maria 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.
