In the Shoe Department: Tieks Flexible Flats
Apparently the ballet flat need reinventing. So, Tieks decided to take on the challenge. The American company uses the finest Italian leathers to craft ballet flats that are so flexible they can be folded and stored in your purse*. Although I’ve not tried these out personally, Tieks appear to be a thoughtfully-designed functional shoe. The split-sole seems like a wise design choice as it increases the flexibility of the shoe (beyond the purpose of folding, of course). The signature blue strip and sole are nice touches which add a nice little Tieks touch to the basic ballet flat. And, of course, the colour and pattern options are plentiful so there’s sure to be a Tieks that you’d like to see on your feet in daytime (and for evening too!).
What do you think? Have you tried Tieks? Are they as comfortable as they claim to be? Do tell.
*Did we need anything else to add to our purse? I don’t know about you but mine is heavy enough as it is without adding a pair of shoes to it.
