Honestly, I am not that big on wearing flats.
I like to be tall.
Like, really tall.
I’m 5’9″ with bare feet and my preferred heel height adds another 3 or 4 inches. On a good day, Spouse and I are seeing eye to eye, and he’s 6’3″.
So, yeah, I don’t wear flats all that much.
Except… this morning I ran 19 miles and pre-run I already had one toenail that was threatening to fall off.
Post-run inspection of my purple nail confirms that it’s definitely on its way out. Pitching my foot forward into a pointy toe box suddenly doesn’t seem all that appealing.
I’m trying to decide if I want to bite the bullet and buy a pair of Tieks, the pricey ballet flats that are seemingly cropping up everywhere I turn.
Their distinctive Tiffany blue sole is pretty darn cute:
Tieks come in about 50 different colors or patterns and range in price from $175 to $295.
I like the snake print ones, which unfortunately are at the upper price point. Sigh.
What color would you get?
