Back to school season is upon us once again. Many teachers are already back in the classroom with their students, while others (like myself) are still setting up and awaiting the arrival of our new class in the coming weeks. Regardless of our personal experiences at the moment, one thing remains the same for all teachers during this time of year: the need for comfortable shoes. Teachers are on their feet all day long and having the right footwear is essential. It’s even more difficult to find comfortable shoes that are professional and stylish as well.

Luckily, Tieks by Gavrieli offers the complete package: high fashion ballet flats with comfort that goes the distance. I plan to add a new pair of Tieks to my wardrobe before I go back to school this fall and I’m excited to partner with Tieks by Gavrieli and give away a $100 Tieks gift card on the blog this week. I’ll fill you in on all the details of the giveaway at the bottom of this post, but first let me tell you about my love affair with these amazing shoes.
All Tieks are made of Italian leather. They are carefully crafted with a hand-stitched leather insole, cushioned back, and signature Tiek blue split rubber sole and stripe along the back. A layer of extra cushioning along the back of the shoe provides additional comfort and prevents the shoe from digging in to the back of the ankle. They also fold up for convenient storage and are great for travel. These wonderful shoes happen to come in every color of the rainbow. Patent leather, printed, and metallic styles are also available (as well as a few vegan options!)
Shipping and returns are always free. Each pair comes packaged in a Tiek blue box with a signature flower on top and a hand-written card inside. It is truly a treat for the eyes and opening a brand new pair of Tieks feels like Christmas.
Not only are the shoes amazing, but the customer care is downright out of this world. The first pair I ever purchased did not fit properly so I made arrangements to exchange them for a new pair. I was shocked to receive an email from customer service telling me that I could hold onto the original pair while they shipped a replacement pair. They encouraged me to try both sets on at the same time and simply return the turn the pair I no longer wished to keep after I made an informed decision. I have never heard of a company that lets their customers keep the initial purchase while they compare it to the item they are exchanging it for. Like I said, the customer service is outstanding.
If you have been thinking about buying a pair of Tieks for yourself, but would like to know more details before you do, I wrote a detailed review over on my personal blog, Crazy Together. I answer all your questions, and probably some you didn’t think of. Click on the image below to see the post.
The soft pink shade is a great neutral. I often wear the Ballerina Pink on days when I’m trying to soften up my look or go casual chic.
Of course, the Lovestruck Tieks are fabulous. This gorgeous metallic pair is great because it’s a neutral and they can be worn with almost all of my school clothes! I can’t wait to start wearing these more with my fall wardrobe.
With the new school year about to begin, I have been saving my pennies to purchase a new pair of Tieks for the school year. I have been scrolling through “The Boutiek” and trying to narrow down my selections. Of course, the soft neutrals caught my eye first. I had to remind myself to keep scrolling even though every single one of these shoes is calling my name. Especially the Rose Gold Glam pair on the far left and the textured metallic Romantic Blush pair near the center.
With fall in mind, my mind was drawn next to rich, warm shades of brown. How gorgeous are the Mocha Snake Print Tieks in the middle or the Leopard Print pair on the right?
After drooling over the brown pairs for far too long, I remembered that I desperately need a new pair of black flats. My current go-to black flats are not Tieks and my big toe has torn a small hole in the top. It will only get worse with time. I started scouting around on the site in search of the perfect black pair of Tieks.
I am the absolute worst at making decisions.
While I sit here mulling over my shoe options, let me tell you about this amazing giveaway! Tieks has generously agreed to let me give away a $100 gift card toward the purchase of a new pair of fabulous flats for one lucky Kinder Craze reader. Use the Rafflecopter below for your chance to WIN!
