Tieks by Gavrieli

Today’s post is all about one of my favorite new discoveries: Tieks ballet flats. I’ve seen them on several fashionable ladies recently and decided I needed to see what all the hype was about. After doing some research, I knew I had to take the plunge and buy a pair. Each shoe is handmade from Italian leather, and one pair takes three days to make! They have a foam cushion so they are super comfy for all day wear, and they are completely foldable!! This means you can stash them in your clutch for a night out, and swap out your heels for the way home. Best. Idea. Ever.

Now that I knew I needed to get myself a pair, the next step was picking a color. With every shade of the rainbow, and tons of fun prints, this was no easy feat! I ended up choosing the mint patent, based on what I already owned in my closet (however, in a dream world I would replace all my old flats for Tieks lol). Sizing was a bit tricky for me, as I wear a true 7.5 in all flats, and these only run in full sizes. I followed their sizing recommendations and went with the size down. They arrived in stunning packaging, the attention to detail was incredible. Unfortunately, the size 7 seemed a tad too tight! Luckily, they have some of THE BEST customer service I have received, especially from a small boutique site. To exchange, all you need to do is go into the returns section of their site, enter your order number, and let them know what size you would like to exchange them for. Then they send you the new size, and also a pre paid return shipping label! That way you can try on both sizes at the same time to make sure you get the perfect fit.

You can keep both pairs for 2 weeks before you get charged for the second pair. I ended up going with the size 8, and easily returned the 7s! So I found them to run a bit small, even though their size guide says they run big. However, their outstanding exchange policy makes it super easy to find the size that works for you. I can’t recommend Tieks enough. Between the customer service, style, and comfort of these shoes, they have quickly become my go-to ballet flat! I can’t wait to add more Tieks to my collection. Looking at you fuchsia 😉
