Are Tieks Worth The Price?

Sharing is caring!

As a person who loves shoes of all kinds, flats are by far my favorite. Flats are more comfortable and perfect for my busy lifestyle instead of trying to do it all in heels.

One of the main problems I used to have when it came to flats, was finding the perfect pair. It was tough to find ballet flats that didn’t pinch or cause blisters. A great pair of shoes needs to provide enough comfort to walk around in all day long, while also being fashionable (at least for me).

In the past I felt like I was just wasting money while on a constant hunt for the perfect pair of flats. Pretty much very pair I wore would eventually hurt my feet in some way. They were also never good when walking around, which I do a lot of when traveling (see my favorite places to travel at the end of this post).

Then I discovered Tieks. I am so happy they now make Tieks in this sweet size too.

What Are Tieks?

I can still remember how excited I was when I got my very first pair of Tieks. From the first time I wore them I knew I finally found a flat that was completely worth every penny (Tieks start at $175.00).

Tieks are a foldable flat made from 100% Italian leather. They have a signature Tieks blue non-skid rubber sole, advanced foam cushion on the inside of the shoe, as well as a cushioned back for the softest support you could ever find in any flat. Many other brands of flats have an elasticized back, which can dig into your heel.

The non-skid, rubber soles means that  you can wear your Tieks immediately, right out of the box over any surface. I have worn my Tieks over many different surfaces including gravel and grassy areas in complete comfort.

I have walked for 12 plus hours around both Disney World and New York City in Tieks, along with many other places around the world, both comfortably and fashionably.

Have you heard of Tieks, the fashionable and foldable ballet flats? The main question people seem to have is, are Tieks worth the price or not.


So, Are Tieks Worth The Price?

When it comes to my clothes and shoes I don’t mind spending a little more, but it must be worth it. I would never advise you to spend money on something I didn’t truly believe in or actually wear myself. So when I tell you Tieks are worth every penny and then some, you can believe it.

Tieks are completely worth the price because they feel like a shoe that was customized for you.

Tieks are unlike any other flats I have ever owned and worn, mainly due to their comfort, durability, flexibility and colorful style. From the first time you unfold a brand new pair of Tieks and wear them, they will almost instantly begin to mold and form to your feet.

What Comes Inside of a Tieks Box?

Receiving a pair of Tieks is quite the fun experience. You not only receive an amazing pair of foldable flats, but also:

  1. A personalized, handwritten note from the Tieks team.
  2. Tieks signature blue box with an adorable elasticized flower ribbon wrapped around it, which you can reuse. 
  3. Small black drawstring bag to carry your foldable Tieks in. 
  4. Tieks signature blue bag (for carrying around those uncomfortable heels or other shoes you took off to switch into your comfy Tieks).

I've been contemplating Tieks for a while now as the Anne Klein's I've had for 13 years are finally calling it quits. They were no where near the price tag of Tieks ($60), so the Tieks pricetag has definitely given me pause. Do they ever go on sale? I love the look of them and can't stop looking at them. lol

Unfortunately Tieks don't go on sale. They are honestly worth every penny and then some.

My friend is getting married next month and she got me an e-gift for a pair of tieks as my MOH present. I'm not sure what size to order though. I usually wear an 8.5 in shoes so I'm leaning towards a 9 based on reviews here and on other sites, I've read from several people that it takes a couple days to break them in and they get looser over time as with any leather shoes. My plan was to wear them the night of the wedding once I want to kick off the heels and dance but I'm worried that they won't be the right size and then I won't be able to exchange them since I'll have worn them outside of my home.

What a lovely and thoughtful present for your friend to give you. I have tried sizing down (as I am also a 1/2 size), but with Tieks I have found it best to size up. They ship quickly, so if you find that its not the right size for you, you can always exchange.

Hi ladies. I ordered my first pairs of Tieks (matte black and leopard). I am a 9.5 so unordered the 10 and Tieks also sent me a 9 to compare sizes. I feel the 10s are a good fit however my shoes squeak when I walk!! Has anyone else had these issues with their shoes? I want to love them, but if I can't get the squeaking to stop I will have to return them :(
