I have been in search of a comfortable shoe for a really long time now. I have finally found it: Tieks- the Ballet Flat Reinvented!
Tieks (pronounced “teeks”) are truly the most versatile designer flats in the world. They are made of the finest Italian leathers and designed to fold and fit in a purse! Each pair is hand-stitched and takes THREE days to make and involves over 150 steps to put together. Tieks feature a brown leather outsole that is treated and coated to be flexible, and yet more durable and sturdy than regular full-grain leathers. Each pair is fitted with non-skid rubber patches and cushioned instep complete with thick padding to guarantee a comfortable heel strike as you step down each time. The backs of the shoes are cushioned rather than elasticized to ensure they are never too tight on your heel… this was a HUGE feature for me! Tieks are completely foldable! They have a split-sole that folds in half for travel, on the go, or if you want to carry them when you are out and may want to change out of your heels. In addition to the beautiful box they come in (seriously loving that signature teal) each pair of Tieks comes with a compact pouch to compress your folded Tieks when they are in your purse and a reusable tote for your heels.
The price tag will make your eyes bulge a bit, dear readers, but trust me it is well worth it. I have NEVER been able to take a pair of shoes out of the box and be able to wear them without breaking them in or experiencing a few blisters or pinches. With my Tieks, I could tell the quality was high from the start. I slipped them on and wore them all day and they were like butter on my feet. I seriously recommend these to anyone who is on their feet all day (hello, all of us?) and are looking for a quality pair of shoes that will last- without compromising style! Plus, as an added bonus, their customer service is bar none, with quick responses and helpful, considerate information.
And now Tieks release their first ever customizable style. By moving the shimmer bar when you order a pair of the new Arabian Nights you can set how much gleam you’d like to sport with these beauties. I set my bar to maximum shine and man, are they beautiful and a true work of art.
For the Arabian Night Tieks there are no two pairs are exactly alike. Each pair is crafted with a black base, vibrant jewel tone spectrum, and patent shine unlike no other.
Are you ready to get swept on a magic carpet ride with your #TIEKS?
