Tieks: The Only Shoes You’ll Ever Need

I18B0009

Comfort, style, and functionality.

That’s what I look for whenever I buy a pair of shoes. Gone are the years where I torment my feet by wearing shoes that leave me with blisters, or that pull off as soon as I walk through the door. When I was in high school, I would wear pointed stilettos about once a week to school just for the fun of it. Let me tell you, they were not comfortable, and I’m pretty sure I have permanent foot damage now because of it. The stupid things we do for fashion.

I don’t know if I’ve just wised up in my later years, or constantly having an additional 20 pounds on my hip has made my mindset switch, but all I can say is that I am never going back.

So ladies, I have a solution to all your feet problems. Tieks.

Tieks are in a league of their own. They are beautifully made with real Italian leather. They feel as if someone walked for 3 months in them to get them ready for when you slip your foot into them.  They are designed specifically for the purpose of function and flexibility from the tip of the toe to the bottom of the sole. Tieks have a split sole, which allows it to easily mold and flex with your foot, and allows you the most support with a natural bend.

Now, not only are they beautiful and comfortable, but they are honestly the most versatile shoes that I own. I can easily throw them on to take Shiloh to the park and run to the grocery store, or I can dress them up and wear them on date night. Less is more. Also, if you decide you want to give those pumps a try again, these little shoes fold right up inside themselves and easily fit in your purse so that you can pull them out when you’ve had enough.

I love companies that focus on creating quality products for everyday people. Products that bring value to people’s lives, even if that is just in the sense of cutting back on excess. Tieks has taken a common problem (too many uncomfortable shoes) and found a solution. They provide an incredible shoe that brings quality and versatility together. Women no longer have to have 5 different pairs of shoes in order to get through their day, but instead just one.

I think the more pieces that we can find to serve multiple purposes, the easier we make things on ourselves. No more worrying if we wore the right shoes for a spontaneous activity, or planning our day around our footwear. Shoes are supposed to improve the quality of our lives. They were created to protect our feet from the harsh landscape. Why not buy shoes that do that, instead of ones that bring their own set of aches and pains to our lives?

We all have enough things to worry about in our day, let’s not let shoes be one of them anymore.

    Couldn’t agree with you more! I have been wearing Tieks for several years now and have started to slowly replace the shoes that tortured my feet (for far too long) with Tieks. They are definitely my go to flat!

    Just wondering if you have any foot issues like plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, neromas…? If you do, how do they wear? I love them and want a pair, but I worry about them being so flat!! Any input is appreciated!!!

      Hey Misty! I don’t have any of those conditions, however, I do have pretty flat feet, and haven’t had any pain or issues with the shoes. I think since they are so bendable, and they move with your foot, they almost hold your foot in the most natural position. I’m not sure though, hope that helps some!

      I have had all 3 issues and now wear tieks all the time without a problem.

        I feel like as long as you get the right size, which sometimes means sizing up, you should have any issues!

      I have plantar fasciitis, and no matter how much I love the look, the feel, and the convenience of my Tieks, I just cannot wear them, because I need more arch support. I can’t wear orthotics inside the Tieks, because the back of the shoe then hits wrong on my heel–the orthotics change the fit. I keep trying to wear them occasionally, to see if they will be okay this time, but the discomfort just isn’t worth it. For me, no matter how nice they are, Tieks were an expensive mistake.

      I have suffered plantar fasciitis in my right foot. Not good for a busy office and operating nurse. Tieks are the best. Slip them off after surgery mornings and rush to Office to see patients and they feel so good on my tired feet and no painful and aching right foot. Worth the investment! Just got my third pair for Christmas.

    If ONLY they were available in 1/2 sizes! I have 2 pair and I’d have many more if only they REALLY fit my feet. I love the Iieks but they are ruining my feet because there are 1/2 size too small.

    Does anyone wear peds with their Tieks or do you go barefoot?

      I have always gone barefoot, but I’m sure that you could wear peds!

    Once I started traveling for business which meant flying several times a month, I simply couldn’t stand walking thru airports in heels and I needed something that I could throw in my bag. I found Tieks and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled these gems out of my bag to wear across terminals. I love them and have them on my Christmas list again this year.

      Seriously the best option for this! Especially when you’re running late for a flight 😉 Hope you get them from Santa this year!

    I love these shoes. One pair was not enough. I have requested a pair from my husband and another from our son for my birthday, because the fit and quality is incomparable!!! As for the young lady who has suffered from wearing Tieks, simply order a size up and you should no longer have problems. I am amassing an arsenal of these wonderful shoes. I can’t bring myself to purchase any other shoe now that I’ve had the Tiek experience!! The best genuine leather that I have ever found. Handmade, amazing! Finally, I love the packaging and the little carry bag that come with each pair.

      Couldn’t have said it better myself! I definitely feel like any foot issues from the shoes are easily solved by sizing up. They are incredible!

        How are they in relation to high arches, bad knees, and hips?

          Unfortunately I’m not sure about with knees and hips, but I have heard of a lot of people with high arches that just order a half size bigger and put an arch support in them!

    Are they good for wide feet? Like toward the toe box area?

    December 1, 2017 at 1:56 pm
    • Reply NICOLE

      They are so flexible and form to whatever foot shape you have, but I would just say to size up if you have wide feet just to be sure they are the most comfortable!

    I have to wear shoes with arch support…do these have good arch support?

    December 9, 2017 at 7:28 pm
    • Reply NICOLE

      They are pretty flat, because they form to your natural foot, but I’m sure you could put one of those arch supports in there and they would work like a dream!

    Do your feet sweat when you wear these shoes barefoot? Also, I wear 8 1/2 or 9, does size up mean I should wear a 10? Thanks so much.

      I haven’t had that problem! But I do know of some people that wear peds with them. And I would just say go with a 9 or 9.5!

      They do! They have some “vegan” options. Some that look like burlap, wool, etc. They are beautiful!
