5 Reasons Why You Need a Pair of Tieks




I finally did it and took the plunge. I finally purchased a pair of Tieks. Personally, I think these shoes are specifically target teachers, nurses and other working professionals who are on their feet during the day so require comfort but crave style. Known for their signature blue bottoms, Tieks are designed for flexibility, comfort and most importantly style. Today I am sharing my top 5 reasons why you need a pair to Tieks! Let's get started...

1. For starters Tieks are designed for lasting comfort. They are specially designed with a foam cushion and mold to fit your foot so you can wear them all day with lasting comfort. Plus they have an extra soft and flexible back. I am constantly walking to and from classrooms all day so I need a pair of flats that will support this without giving my blisters on the backs of my foot. 

2. They are designed to be folded and stored! This is one of my favorite parts about Tieks. I am constantly packing an over night bag or wearing heels to work and want a pair of flats for running errands afterwards and always worry about my shoes losing their shape. Anyone else worry about this? Not to worry, Tieks are designed to fold into each other to be store. These are the perfect addition to my purse since they take up minimal room and don't add any extra weight. 

3. Style, I think like most I was first drawn to Tieks because of the wide variety of style they have to offer. My biggest struggle when purchasing a pair (besides getting over the price) was trying to decide which color or pattern I wanted to try. I ended up choosing the mint pair. They are so fun & vibrant, the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe.  Check out my other favorites: here, here and here.

4. I'm sure you have seen the dozens of photos on Pinterest and the Tieks website of their cute packaging. In case you haven't, Tieks come with an adorable colorful flower encasing their signature blue box. I don't know about you, but I LOVE receiving mail. And I especially love cute packing when it is clear the company values custom service. 

5. Let's talk about the price. Now this may not be a reason that will have you running to purchase them. However; you pay for what you get. These shoes are high quality. They are hand stitched and take 3 days with over 150 steps to ensure you are getting the best possible shoe. Additionally, Tieks also contributes to the Gavrieli Foundation, which focuses on empowering female entrepreneurs, or as I like to call them, #girlbosses! 

How I styled mine:
I was so excited to receive these that I ended up checking my mail what seemed like multiple times a day anxiously awaiting their arrival. Finally on Thursday they arrived! I instantly grabbed this Loft skirt ( on sale!) to pick up the mint green in the shoes. Then I paired a neutral cream colored cardigan and off white blouse for a polished look, perfect for Sunday Brunch or work. Shop today's outfit of the day in the links below.

  1. LOVEEE that you went with the mint pair--I'm sure they're going to be a neutral for you! I've debated purchasing a pair but haven't pulled the trigger b/c of the price--you may have talked me into it. This skirt looks perfect on you too!

  2. I am toying with the idea but as you said the price is a killer. I'd probably choose a more neutral shade t get more wear out of them but I ADORE the pastel colors!

  7. First and foremost, your outfit looks adorable. I think that needs to be said from the get-go. Second, I've seen Tieks before and never thought to try them. Buuuuuut then you come along and make them look so cute and comfy. Ok ok now I just gotta add them to my collection. My bank account is gonna be like, "stop spending money on clothes!" but my closet will be like, "gimmie! gimmie! gimmie!"

  21. I don't have any Tieks myself but I think I will get my hands on some at some point. I have the Tory Burch Minnie flat which are a similar concept because they fold up and I adore those haha.

  24. lo--first, LOVE that skirt on you!!!! how did i know it was from LOFT? and of course i already know where the cardi is from. and should we talk about how many TB bags you have?!!!! ok, but about your post. i do not own a pair of tieks. i thought they were one of oprah's fave too so that could be #6. :P i really like how they fold up, easy for changing/packing! and the support is such an impt thing esp when you are on your feet all day the last thing you want to wear is uncomfortable heels/shoes. one day i shall try them! hope you had a great weekend, xoxo,
