For the past three years, Tieks has done something special for Black Friday. They release a limited edition ballet flat for 4 days (or while supplies last) and 2018 brought us Raspberry Truffle Tieks. I've got a closer look for you and a video to show you the color and side by side comparisons.
Tieks wanted us to indulge in the decadence of the season with Raspberry Truffle Tieks. They were described as a sumptuous blend of delectable dark chocolate and deep raspberry red. They're made of full-grain leather and have a metallic shimmer (similar to Metallic Pewter or Metallic Gold). If you read my Tieks review, you know I absolutely love these designer shoes and they're pretty much the only flats I wear.
Like most of my Tieks ballet flats (and I have quite the collection of Tieks shoes - just click that link to see photos of most of the Tieks releases and side-by-side photos of them with similar colors), Raspberry Truffle is true to size. I wear an 8.5 or 9 depending on the shoe and all of my Tieks are size 9 (with the exception of 4 of the Vegan Tieks, which I needed to size up in).
These flats are super soft and fit like a glove right out of the box. As I've said before, I prefer to wear insoles with Tieks but you could also wear no-show socks for flats if you prefer. In my opinion, the fit doesn't change if I wear thin insoles (check this link to see my favorites) but you can certainly just wear them.

I think Raspberry Truffle is perfect for Fall and Winter wear. These can be dressed up or down depending on your outfit and jewelry and I can't wait to wear them this holiday season.
If you get a scuff or scrape, you can always polish Tieks. I've got a comprehensive list of color matches and a how-to polish your Tieks video for you. I ordered 4 different polishes to find a color match for Raspberry Truffle and this is what I came up with: 1 part Tarrago 54 (Aubergine), 1 part Tarrago 111 (Old Leather, although any brown will probably work), and a hint of Tarrago 506 (Platinum). There's a drop-down menu on Amazon and you can select the colors.
