Are You a Tieks Girl?

What are Tieks by Gavrieli?

Tieks \\, noun. The most versatile designer flats in the world. Made of the finest Italian leathers and designed to fold and fit in a purse. Wearable all day, every day.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, snapshots featuring Tieks by Gavrieli are certainly worth a billion. Just take a look at any of Tieks social media channels and it’s like getting a long overdue hug from a best friend.

In a nutshell…or perfectly wrapped designer box…Tieks have revolutionized ballet flats for women. Combined with beautiful packaging, pouch, tote and a handwritten note. This is the best gift a woman could buy for herself. And the best gift that will ever be left on her doorstep. And yes, they are just as comfortable as they look. 

Who is a Tieks girl?

A Tieks girl is smart, sassy, chic, stylish… Carefree jetsetters planning their next girls weekend escape, moms who still have a stylish edge and trendsetters who are simply not ready to embrace the flip flop craze even though they cannot tolerate one more step in another heel. With Tieks, age is just a number, but an impeccable sense of innate style is eternal is mandatory as well. 

Tieks for Travel

Then I started to wonder, “Could I possibly survive with only one pair of shoes the next time I travel? Could the perfect pair of Tieks last my wardrobe changes and itinerary for an international trip?” Was this genius or ludicrous? Either way, I would soon find out!

The mission: Pack only one pair of shoes for my next getaway. This would be my dream situation. I already love the travel aspects of Tieks, but could I actually survive without over packing? Will I break out in hives at the thought? Here goes nothing!

The pros:

  • Stylish AND comfortable.
  • TSA security line friendly.
  • Blueprint slip resistant soles.
  • Did we mention the most adorable shoe ever?

What you need to know:

  • What size Tieks do I order? Tieks only offer whole sizes. This is not an issue whatsoever. That’s easy, just note they run slightly big. I am an 8.5. Originally, I tried the 9 and it was a bit big. I went down to the 8 and at first it was a bit snug, but after the first wear, they now fit like a glove.
  • Where can I purchase Tieks? Tieks are available exclusive online at tieks.com
  • What if my Tieks don’t fit or I order the wrong size? No worries! They have a fantastic complimentary return policy. 
  • Do Tieks carry any non-leather options? YES! Their vegan-friendly selection of ballet flats are kinda sorta AMAZING!
  • Are Tieks really that comfortable? Yes! Even though I have a wider foot, I have still comfortably spent long hours on my feet and even wore them on city walking tours without enduring a red mark or blister. They are that good.

These Tieks were made for dancing.

Dancing through life that is. What I learned on this trip was it didn’t matter if I packed one or four pair of Tieks, they still are the best travel shoe out there and finding luggage space is not an issue. Not only did they exceed all of my expectations, but they certainly added that je ne sais quoi to my photo diary. My final assessment? You will definitely be seeing more of Tieks by Gavrieli on The JetSet Family. I’d love to feature them in all of our travel stories!

In fact, during my most recent press trip, I created quite a stir with these fab shoes. My fellow bloggers were quite impressed at not only how great they looked, but how well they travelled (i.e. They fold up and fit neatly in your bag!) They could not wait to get home to order their own.

Review overview

    I have never heard of these but might have to pick some up. They would be great for our upcoming trip, they look great for tons of walking!

  • Nancy Lustri (StyleDecor) November 11, 2014

    These are too cute! I love the packaging. Great for a gift for somebody who has everthing! What girl doesn’t love shoes, right?

  • Travel Blogger November 11, 2014

    those would be great for long, long days to keep in your purse- and for weddings and all those times you really want to swap your shoes out 🙂

  • LaVonne November 11, 2014

    I’d love to bring those to my husband’s work with church. I am in heels a lot, so it’d be nice to slip these on when my feet are hurting. They are so cute. I love flats!

  • Rosey November 11, 2014

    You sold me at slip-resistant shoes. My favorite looking pair of shoes I rarely wear because they don’t grip well at all.

  • Chelley @ AisForAdelaide November 11, 2014

    I love these! I think they’re great for having for all times! The winters here mean gross boots, but I’d love to whip out my cute flats for when I arrive somewhere!

  • Mistee Dawn November 12, 2014

    Never heard of them before. But I am so glad I did. I think I am a Tieks girl! lol

  • Jeanette April 24, 2015

    I love any shoes that are comfy and easy to pack. I hate having to tie and untie my shoes at TSA, these are adorable!
