My $5 Tieks Hack

In my last post, I shared my true and honest feelings about my Tieks and whether or not I felt like they are worth $200.  I also promised that I would be sharing the hack on how I made my pair work better for me.  Thankfully after dropping big bucks on the shoes, the hack is totally affordable and takes just a couple of minutes.

It’s been well documented that some people feel like their toes stick out too much and are too noticeable while wearing Tieks, and I could not have agreed more!  Here is what my tootsies looked like before my hack:

It made me crazy.  Especially after I’ve had a couple of keyboard warriors say horrible things about my apparently hideous feet after I shared this post.  There is nothing like baring your “sole” (ahahahahaha…do you see what I did there?!) and having people berate you about the most inane things.  Ugh.  If you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing!  Anyhoo, after that I felt like hiding my toes a bit more.

There are tons of quick and easy hacks for Tieks on the web, but this one seemed to be exactly what I needed…adding moleskin to the toe box.  It is done to both hide the toes a bit and to also help protect the toe of the shoe from being worn through.

I just grabbed a package of moleskin from the drugstore, held a piece up to the toe and cut it to be the same size/shape of the shoe.  My moleskin was self adhesive, so I was able to remove the backing and stick it right onto the top inner portion for the toe.  It could not have been easier, but it made a really noticeable difference.

It’s a little frustrating to feel like you have to improve a pair of expensive shoes, but this one is totally worth it.  If you’ve got a pair of Tieks (or any shoes that you feel your toes are sticking out on), give this a try.

  1. Your toes are *fine*!!!! For goodness sakes’ people- get a life that doesn’t revolve around putting other people down.

  2. If we are secure in who we are, we won’t need the approval of others. Security comes from living by our convictions, which creates self respect. When we truly value and respect ourself, what someone thinks or says won’t affect our esteem.

  3. Great idea, but I have to ask how often do you have to replace the moleskin and are there any long-lasting issues?
