Did you have the chance to order the limited edition Love Potion Tieks by Gavrieli ballet flats? I'm sharing a closer look at these gorgeous flats.
I’ve gotten a lot of emails over the past few months asking for more detailed pictures of Love Potion Tieks. In case you aren’t familiar with these foldable ballet flats, you can check out my full Tieks review to see why I, along with so many other women, am obsessed with Tieks. Love Potion was a special release over Halloween weekend 2018, so they're no longer available and no one really knows if they will make their way back to the Boutiek in the future.
Love Potion Tieks
Reminiscent of a witches special brew, Love Potion has a beautiful, color-shifting pattern depending on which lights you’re in. Love Potion Tieks are described as a mixture of Lovestruck and Moonstruck Tieks. The combination of Lovestruck's rose gold hues with Moonstruck's silver and blue along with hints of green and purple creates a brilliant shine.
Like other Tieks in the "Struck" family (which would be Lovestruck, Moonstruck, and Starstruck, Love Potion has an iridescent foil finish. Tieks describes this finish as "delicate" and they caution that it might fade with wear. If you're very hard on your shoes this might be a hard pair to maintain. As with my other Strucks, I would recommend applying a coat of waterproof spray to repel dirt and water. If you do end up with a lot of wear or scuffs, you won't simply be able to polish your Tieks like you can with most of the classic leathers. You'll have to touch up the spots with a mixture of Angelus Glitterlite paints. I'm currently working on a post about this, so hang tight and I'll have some instructions soon.
Unlike some of the other special edition Tieks in recent years, Love Potion did not come with a special flower or box topper. My Love Potion arrived with a gray flower.
Love Potion Tieks retailed for $265, which is right on par with other Tieks from the 'Struck family. Moonstruck, Lovestruck, and Starstruck are all currently still available for $265 on the Tieks website.
In my detailed post about Tieks shoes with side-by-side comparisons, I have photos of Love Potion next to their closest matches. If you're in the market for a pair of Tieks, this post will be really helpful since it shows LOTS of different colors.
