As a Mom who spend a lot of time on her feet, I’m always looking to be comfy, yet stylish. I wear a lot of ballet flats since they’re fashionable and easy to put on. This spring I’ve found the best ballet flats for Moms called Tieks by Gavrieli. With advanced foam cushioning on the inside and beautiful soft leather on the outside, Tieks are the perfect combination of comfort and chic.
I wear flats pretty much 90% of the time, so I only buy shoes that are going to last years (not one season). When my cousin raved about her teal-bottomed Tieks, I had to try a pair for myself. After my first day wearing Tieks, my feet were a bit sore. I walked around NYC a lot that day so thought it could have been my activity and not the ballet flat. However, I’ve read many reviews that say Tieks need a little bit of breaking in before they fit your foot comfortably. Needless to say, the second time I wore them was much more comfy!
Tieks are extremely versatile flats; they’re foldable (can fit in your purse), durable (in-sole cushioning and non-slip soles), and stylish (they go with everything!) I won’t lie about the price tag – Tieks are on the more expensive side, but are made with high quality Italian leather!
Fun fact: It takes 3 days and 150 steps to make a pair of Tieks.
Tieks are pricey, yes, but made with high-quality Italian leather so they are going to last a long time. In my opinion, you can’t put a price on an item you could wear everyday that provides physical comfort. Many pairs of ballet flats in my closet are more than a few years old, but in great condition because they are well-made with premium leather.
The best part about Tieks is that they are stylish enough to go from day to night. With the addition of a blazer and a clutch, I took an easy daytime outfit to a stylish nighttime oufit. Whether it’s the sporadic date night or girls night out, Tieks are the perfect shoe for Moms.
Whenever I see a Mom wearing heels on a play date or trip to the grocery store, I always wonder how she doesn’t fall into bed at night with a backache. Props to the Mamas who wear heels! For me, heels are for special occasions, but Tieks are a Mom’s everyday best friend.
