I’ve secretly always wanted to be a shoe girl. I get giddy and squeal like a 15 year old girl when I come across a pair that I desperately want.
I’ve just had one issue.
I have wide feet. With the blame shared between genetics and the fact that my entire childhood was spent barefooted, all my dreams of dainty heels go out the window.
Needless to say I was thrilled when ballet shoes came out. They looked a little more promising. But even then I was emerging from nights out with blisters and heels that look like a cheese grater was taken to them (graphic, I know. You should have been there.). So you can imagine my skepticism when I was asked to review Tieks. I had yet to find a pair that tear my feet up but I was willing to give them a try.
…and of course in leopard print. What else?
They arrived in a box that would live up to any girl’s expectation. A swanky, bright, teal box with a pink, glittery flower adorning the top stared back at me as I ripped into the cardboard box.
I took my time. It isn’t everyday that you get a package that is so well put together.
They were so pretty. So pretty…. and leathery. Did I mention that I love leather? So leathery and pretty.
I slipped them onto my feet in a Cinderella daze and surprisingly… THEY FIT. They fit my fat feet! The leather gave way to the massive potatoes known as my feet.
I took them out on the town warily. It took me weeks to recover from the last ballet shoe incident. But they were snug. They didn’t move. They didn’t blister my feet.
I had found my shoe heaven.
I even took them with me to New York. Shaun and I magically fit both of our clothes into 1 small suitcase for the weekend. The Tieks fit into their small black bag (almost like a compression sack) and were stashed away taking little to no space since they fold in half.
Ultimately a girls perfect travel shoe.
I’m already trying to figure out what my next pair will be. Now, these are by no means super cheap but I think they are worth every penny. Snug, flexible, pretty, leather, and fit into tiny spots? Tieks have won a spot in my heart.
Note: They are coming out with a vegan line so all you ladies who aren’t into leather – they are coming out soon!
