Crafted For Comfort
In 3 days and 150 steps, every element used in the making of a pair of Tieks comes together to produce a ballet flat with unparalleled comfort, malleability, and durability. The flexible outsoles, midsole, insole, and upper work in harmony to take on the shape of your foot, delivering a personalized fit unlike any other.
Tieks are made from 100% premium Italian leather. Handcrafted in Italy, the leathers are tumbled for hours, sometimes even days, to achieve an unparalleled softness. This ensures that each pair feels supple and comfortable right out of the box.
Heel comfort is of the utmost importance, which is why the back of each pair of Tieks is cushioned rather than elasticized. The cushioned back ensures that Tieks always fit snugly, yet are never too tight on the heel.
Unlike other flats, Tieks feature a brown leather midsole that is specially treated to be flexible, allowing the shoe to bend with the natural movement of your feet and mold to their shape from the bottom up.
Soft Leather Insole
Tieks insoles are hand stitched and made from soft, full-grain leather. This exceptionally smooth and breathable leather feels silky on bare feet, while advanced foam cushioning underneath provides a soft instep for all day comfort and long-term wear.
Each pair of Tieks features split rubber outsole patches in our signature Tiek Blue color, adding a unique flexibility to the bottom of the shoe. The thick, non-skid rubber is tough enough to shield your feet from feeling the ground below, while bouncy and flexible enough to move with your feet and keep you light on your toes, no matter the terrain.
Stitched For Comfort
Extreme care is taken when cutting, stitching and finishing each pair of Tieks to ensure that each edge feels smooth and soft. This meticulous attention to detail means no scratching, digging or rubbing, with minimal to zero break-in time.
The upper of each pair of Tieks is cut and crafted from a single piece of leather. Formless and flexible, the leather upper is designed to wrap around the foot, stretching and molding with wear for a uniquely perfect fit.
