    Tieks??

    Advertisements
    My heart says yes, my wallet says no. Are Tieks really, super, freakishly comfortable? Durable? I love them--so many colors!!!--but they are super expensive for plain flats. Still, I'm looking for super comfy flats for long walks to stations and hours standing on trains.

    Are they amazing or is it all hype?

    ETA: What about sizing. Since they don't have half sizes, they say to size down. I'm almost always an 8.5, but occasionally an 8, so I'm assuming an 8 would be fine.

    I have two pair that I bought 2.5 years ago and I love them. My color choices were pretty neutral (pewter and black). They are my go to travel shoe, both train and air! They're great to pack in my carry on, too.

    Yes, they are spendy but mine are still going strong. I've been contemplating buying a fun colored pair for summer.

    Are they cushioned pretty well, or are they pretty hard on the bottom?

    I really want a leopard pair, but they are even more expensive ($235!!!!), so that's not happening.

    On a side note... All of my walking in Germany and Rome was in Tieks.

    I had a pair of Skechers Go Walks that went on all my non-winter European trips. So comfy, and they looked like boat shoes so they were less ugly than most go-walks. The soles are worn down to basically nothing. Those shoes surely have hundreds of European miles on them. I bought what seemed to be an identical pair to replace them, but they aren't quite as good because there's something inside that rubs just a bit.
