I LOVE shoes. They are my favorite thing to purchase and wear. There are many types of shoes I love, but my most favorites are Tieks. Tieks are my go to shoe of choice thanks to their amazing comfort level, durability, portability, and also their style factor. They even have a signature Tieks blue sole and stripe up the back of the shoe for a classy and unique look. Since you can’t try these shoes on before ordering them, how can you be sure you are buying the right size Tieks? After buying so many pairs of these ballet flats over the years I am going to share whether you should size up or down.
What Are Tieks Shoes?
In case you don’t own a pair of Tieks yet, or maybe you aren’t even sure what I am talking about, I will tell you the truth about Tieks. They are incredibly comfortable, Italian leather, flexible and fashionable flats.
Tieks have definitely gained in popularity, but there still seems to be a lot of people who shy away from these fabulous flats because they can only be purchased at one specific place online.
This means you can’t try them on before you buy them. For a first time Tieks buyer the question of what size Tieks to order as well as what color to choose can start to drive you crazy.
Buying The Right Size Tieks:
Tieks are a very flexible type of flat shoe and since they are made with 100% Italian leather that is super supple, they do stretch a bit and will actually start to feel like they are molding to your foot (in a comfortable way).
Tieks do not run in half sizes, only whole.
To try to make sure you are buying the right size of Tieks the first time that you order, I always tell people they run pretty true to size, but if you wear a 1/2 size, then I would order the next full size up instead of sizing down.
I normally wear a size 5 1/2 in women’s shoes, but in Tieks I wear a size 6. I actually ordered and tried on a size 5 in Tieks the very first time I ordered so I could compare the sizes. Size 5 was too tight and the 6 fit just right.
Can you return Tieks?
Tieks has fabulous customer service.
Once you receive and try on your Tieks (in the comfort of your own home) and if you find they don’t fit or if you would like to compare them with another size, simply call or email Tieks customer service and they will send you out another pair free of charge. The best part is that you will be able to have both pairs to try on and compare.
Once you decide which pair you want to keep, you simply mail back the other ones, free of charge.
My favorite Tieks to travel with currently are rose gold, and they have kept my feet comfortable plus fashionable while walking all around Disney World, New York City, Old San Juan, Paris and many more places.
Both my 8 year old daughter and I love that Tieks recently started making this new sweet style of shoes so she can follow along in my footsteps.
Now that you have some direction when it comes to buying the right size Tieks, you no longer have to worry and stress about sizing and can finally start ordering the best flats ever!
