I’m thinking about getting these for my wedding as well.   Does anyone know if they have stores or do you have to order them online?

cjfarborist:  Online only. Check out their website though; free US shipping and they’ll get to you in 2-4 days. Free return and exchange shipping too. And others have said if yours don’t fit, they’ll send you the new size and let you keep both sizes for a week or so to figure out which one is best before you send back the ones that don’t work. I’m pretty sold on getting these also & have been doing a ton of research

deltag22:  thanks!!  I can’t decide if I should get a really unusual color or go more sedate and try to wear them all the time.   And I used to live in Fremont!!

Not worth it! I wear flats all the time and I must say I’m not sure why they are getting such good reviews. The sole on my matte black tieks started to fall apart after my third wear! I wanted to love these but I am not impressed and they’re definitely not worth the $200!!

kashbd10 :  Whoa. Contact them. I am sure they will make this right. I ONLY wear Tieks (apart from sneakers when working out) and I have pairs from early 2013 that are perfect, the sole and uppers look the same as the day I got them.

Any ladies wear have sizes usually? Did you size up or down when you ordered? This has been the only thing stopping me because I’m not sure which way to go!

artdecogal :  I wear a size 7.5 but went up to 8 and they fit fine. The portion around your ankle has a sort of elastic to it that grips the side of your foot so they don’t slip off. So far they’ve stayed on just fine and haven’t chafed! But if you ever DO feel they’re too loose, you could always wear peds with them or add some heel cushioning.

kashbd10 :  I agree with Olivepepper; please contact them.  I have 4 pairs that I wear all of the time for work and haven’t had any issue like that. 

artdecogal :  I am a pretty consistent 5.5 in shoes and so I wasn’t sure which way to go when I ordered my first pair.  I went ahead and ordered the size 5, but they seemed a bit too snug.  So, I contacted Tieks and they sent me the size 6 to try, and compare to, the 5.  I preferred the 6, so I then sent back the size 5 (free shipping).  I really appreciated that kind of customer service.  Just make sure not to wear them outside, or you can’t return them.  I now have 4 pairs and love them.

artdecogal :  I normally wear a 5.5 and I wear a 6 in tieks. I know their website recommends sizing down, but the 5 was WAY too snug. They have easy and free exchanges so there is really nothing to lose!

The price might be expensive, but the quality is amazing, therefore making them worth every penny. Just keep in mind they do fit on the smaller side.

If you are wanting to splurge a little for you wedding day and buy yourself a small prize that will keep you dancing all night long, Tieks is definitely a great option. They are solidly made and adorably cute. Here is a review of them as bridal flats
