I’m about to enter into my little travel season, which reminds me that I desperately need a new pair of classic, comfortable and cute ballet flats.
I’ve sworn by Tory Burch for years, and I can’t imagine any pair of shoes being as comfortable and lasting as long as my favorite Tory Burch flats. (Please excuse the sweatpants…It’s late, but I needed a pic.)
I’ve had my favorite pair since 2009, and they’ve been all over the US with me. I’ve walked miles and miles and miles in them, and I have consistently received compliments on them since the day I bought them! I wish I could keep them for five more years, but they’ve finally met their doom. (The holes happened on a long walk during Mardi Gras.)
Over the years I’ve tried Prada, Michael Kors, Coach, Cole Haan and other brands, which were all good, but none of them compared to the comfort of my TB ballet flats. I figured I’d just replace them with these, but lately I’ve seen lots of chatter about Tieks online.
I have to admit that I’m intrigued by Tieks because they’re adorable, but the price point is comparable to Tory Burch so I need them to be long-lasting and comfortable too. Can’t the birthday fairy just send me this pair in a size 10 as an early birthday gift?
I like trying new things, but sometimes (you know, when shoes cost a couple Benjamin’s a pair) it’s good to stick with what you know works.
Does anyone wear them? If so, would you recommend them to someone who plans to wear them a lot?
