I have been hearing about Tieks by Gavrieli for a while now. I’ve checked out their website and read up on them. Like any other girl, I would “shop” for which pair I’d purchase first.
I’m a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz and I always wanted a pair of Ruby red slippers. I love the color red so I always said I’d LOVE the Cardinal red Tieks. In my dreams of course… Then hubs asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day and I mentioned these beautiful Italian leather red ballet flats. Well the rest is history! I’m so excited to share with you: this is my first pair of Tieks by Gavrieli!
I was truly amazed when I received them. I’m a girl that enjoys beautiful packaging. It’s the little things that do it for me. A family friend of mine recently purchased a pair of Tieks and she posted them online. I noticed the flower on her box, but didn’t realize it was customary for each pair of Tieks to come with a flower. My box also arrived with a beautiful flower (and I can totally wear it as a headband, if I want to!). It was love at first sight and I hadn’t even opened the box yet.
Then I opened the box to find a handwritten note. Seriously- my heart skipped a beat. I have seen online that the staff at Tieks sent out handwritten cards to customers at times. I absolutely love this! It made me feel very special and made me even more excited to get those Cardinal red beauties on my feet! They did not disappoint!
These shoes are AMAZING. I was very impressed by the craftsmanship of the shoe. Each shoe is hand stitched with Italian leather. They are soft on the outside and inside. Honestly they feel like a second skin and mold to your feet. I think that’s why they fit so well. The shoes have a buttery soft leather smell too! I love the smell of leather! You can just tell it’s a quality product. If leather isn’t your thing, they also have beautiful Vegan options too! I love love love the Sunset Stripe Vegan shoe.
I am now actually going to admit to shopping for cute tops and/or dresses that would look cute with my Tieks. Yeah I am! Secretly I’m already hoping for another pair! (Note the pair I mentioned above.)
If you’ve also been dream shopping on the site you’ve seen the price tag on these babies. My biggest question to everyone that owns a pair was always, “Are they worth it?” Honestly, YES! I love the look of flats. They are cute, look great with various styles and are an easy shoe option. These flats exceeded all of my expectations. I have several pairs of flats and they have all been worn a handful of times each. For various uncomfortable reasons (ie tight in the heels, have no support, or cut into my foot). By saying that I’ve been wearing them daily, has to tell you something! They are that easy, comfy, cute and so very worth every penny. My feet have no complaints!The only thing I worry about is wearing them out. For now, I’m loving and enjoying them! I can’t wait to add more to my closet! I’d also like to add, if they are good enough for my dear Oprah– they are good enough for me and you! 😉 They didn’t make Oprah’s Favorite Things List for nothing! Just saying..
