It was her sister's wedding that sparked the idea for Anyi Lu's namesake footwear label. Finding the wedding dress was easy but finding a shoe the bride could wear all day and dance all night in? Less so. Anyi Lu thought it was absurd that women had accepted that a designer shoe was beautiful yet uncomfortable to wear, that beauty came at the cost of comfort. Teaming her background as a chemical engineer with her passion for ballroom dancing Anyi Lu launched her line of women's Anyi Lu shoes, which are all created in Tuscany by families of generations of shoe-makers, using new technology to ensure comfort and grip and of course with a dance floor-worthy style.
