I just purchased a ridiculously expensive pair of burgundy ballet flats and will be wearing them everyday next week while on an 9 day tour of Portugal. The shoes are called Tieks by Gavrielli and I paid $175 for my first pair. I sure hope they are worth it.
If you haven’t heard about this line yet, the shoes all have a signature light blue sole on the bottom and stripe up the back, but that is not why I bought my pair. Supposedly they will be extraordinarily comfortable and perfect for the walking traveler. The shoes are made of Italian leather and the backs of the shoes are constructed with a cushioned back as opposed to the regular ballet shoes’s elastic back. They are fold-able and will fit in purse for a quick shoe change when dressier shoes are starting to hurt and can be worn all day and night.
I will let you know what I think and if I will be buying more Tieks or donating to a worthy charity. As far as I can tell the only way to buy real Tieks is through their website at:
The website says free shipping and returns but I needed them fast so I paid extra.
Stay tuned for an honest review.
