ONLY HAND-PICKED, HIGHEST QUALITY, SUPPLE ITALIAN LEATHERS WILL DO
We painstakingly hand-select each one of our leathers from the top ten tanneries in Italy. Commonly used synthetic linings cannot breathe and cause the foot to sweat resulting in blisters and irritation. Therefore, we fully line each shoe in highly breathable Italian Nappa leather. There is never a need to break in the shoes, even our patents, as our leathers are soft and stretchy creating a custom like-fit.
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.
