If you have a pair of Tieks that you wear as often as I do, your shoes might look like this too. So, no, they really don't make your feet smell that much and the shoes themselves don't retain a lot of odor.

One may also ask, what is so special about Tieks? Tieks are by far the most comfortable flats I've ever owned. The cushioned non-skid rubber soles (in their signature turquoise) are thicker than most ballet flat soles and feel bouncy. The backs are cushioned rather than elasticised so they don't feel too tight at the heel.

Being made of Italian leather, Tieks do tend to scuff and scratch easily, and they also start to stink if you wear them completely barefoot inside, which I do. Like all leather shoes, you should regularly polish your Tieks.

Unfortunately, Tieks are not sold through stores like Nordstroms or Bloomingdales, and you also can't buy them online through Amazon or Zappos. The only place to buy Tieks is through their online store, the Boutiek. Additionally, Tieks doesn't offer any coupons or sales.
