I'm Loving My Tieks!

For several months, I have been spotting several blog and Instagram friends sporting their Tieks by Gavrieli and I wanted to check them out.  I am so glad I did!

I loved the personal touch added to my package!

The packaging alone made me happy.
The beautiful boxes are too pretty not to keep.

Check out the two pair that I decided to get:

I've worn both pair several times and I am in LOVE!
I wanted to test them out a few weeks before I shared my experience with you.  For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this picture:

And you all asked for a follow up on my opinion.

Honestly, I didn't want to like them as much as I do since they are so pricey.  But, I do love them and know I will be buying more in the future.  Why?

My legs don't hurt at the end of the day the way they did in other flats!  One day last week, I didn't even take them off until after I had cooked dinner.  {I usually throw off my shoes as soon as I walk in the house!}

Have you tried out Tieks ballet shoes yet?  If you haven't, I do have a few tips based on other reviews and from my experience:

1) Since they don't come in half-sizes, order up.  Luckily, I am a size 8 and they fit perfectly.  I have read other reviews where they didn't fit properly and I think that is due to being a half-size.

2) I have read that they do stretch a little, but so far, mine are perfect.

3) Customer service is AMAZING!  If you have any questions or concerns, they are quick to respond to all email.  They even offer free shipping and returns on all US orders.  That is a always a plus for me!

Now, what color should I choose next?  What is your favorite pair?

  1. What are tikes? They look like slippers. They look super cozy and comfy! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for them? I'm glad you love them!

  2. I've always wondered if they were comfortable! I've seen so many people get them, but never heard how they liked them! Guess I'll need to start saving my money!
