tieks – The Perfect Ballet Flat

If you are anything like me, heels are not necessarily my go to accessory. I spend my days in Vans and Converse, so wearing heels can be a bit of a shock for my feet. When I am travelling or feel like an old pair of trainers wont do the job what do I wear? If you’re a bride looking for a pair of shoes that wont have you hobbling around by the end of the night, what are your options? Finding comfortable and fashionable shoes is no easy task, but ladies I have the answer to your problems!




In my search for the perfect pair of flats that looked fabulous, were super comfy and travelled well I came across tieks by Gavrieli. These are “Ballet flats reinvented. Designer flats you can fit in your purse wear all day, every day” Yup they are small, hand made from fine Italian leather and come in the most amazing colours and prints. Just look at the selection below!


They are a little pricey, but I took the plunge and bought a pair to see if they were as amazing as all the hype led me to believe…and I can confirm they are! There is no need to break them in and they are super comfy from the minute you pop them on (after you have been blown away by the cute packaging and hand written note). My only gripe is they don’t have half sizes, which is a bit tricky if you live in Europe and are trying to figure out sizing. Im thinking I might go up a size with my next pair…Yup I will definitely be getting more of these lovely shoes!




tieks are perfect for fashion conscious bride who wants beautiful shoes for their special day. A pair of tieks could even be your something blue. If you still want to stick with your heels but think your bridesmaids would look perfect in a sparkly pair of silver flats, then these turquoise soled flats are perfect!




I really struggled to narrow down my favourites. Which ones would you choose?
