About 2 months ago, I started a search for comfortable, but cute teacher shoes. I asked all teachers I knew, but everyone was giving me the same answers: shoes that were absolutely comfortable, but maybe didn't match my exact style! I kept searching and looking in stores.
That's when I discovered Tieks! I have always heard my teacher bloggy friends discussing them, but I never thought about it because I'm not a big online shopper. However, I decided since I was having such a hard time finding decent teaching shoes that weren't giving me backaches and sore legs, then maybe Tieks were the way to go.
So, I hopped online and start shopping.
I decided to go for a plain pair for my first pair just so I can match it with the most outfits.
Black Matte Tieks in my shopping cart. I was taking the plunge.
And ladies, I did NOT look back.
I am in love with the shoes. I am so glad that I invested in these shoes.
So many adorable uses for that cute bow it comes with.
I felt like a kid on Christmas unwrapping my present.
SO versatile! I can fold them up and put them anywhere.
Tieks even sent a little baggy for me to put my shoes in. I can throw this in my teacher bag when I'm feeling brave enough for boots or heels, but know I won't make it until my planning hour!
Check out this adorable baggy for storage! Just fold and stuff!
My first day with my Tieks.
I tried them on and took one thousand pics of them.
And here are my Tieks after 8 hours on my feet while teaching my darlings.
(And yes, I'm aware the lighting makes my feet look funny and two-toned. Just ignore that!)
Chestnut Brown and Cardinal Red
These are in the shopping card for the next time I buy online!
Do you remember last month when I posted a blog post about keeping teacher stress to a minimum and how to put yourself first. Splurging on yourself should be added to the list!
I love them so much, I am giving away a gift card for you to put towards a pair for yourself!
