If you want to add a pop of color into your wardrobe, see if Razzleberry Tieks are the right ballet flats for you. I've got a closer look for you with a Razzleberry Tieks and Cotton Candy Tieks video and side-by-side comparisons with similar colors.
Ever since Tieks introduced the Little Miss Tieks collection, I was hoping that they'd release the same colors in adult sizes. I did an entire mommy and me ballet flats photoshoot with my little lady (and made a video about the new collection for toddlers and little girls). Even though Fuchsia and Ballerina Pink were close, they weren't exactly the same as this new patent leather collection. So, when they released Razzleberry Tieks and Cotton Candy Tieks I was all over it! I ordered them immediately and truly love the colors.
Tieks describes Razzleberry as "blending vivid raspberry reds and pinks with a hint of blackberry purple." I'd say that description is spot on. The color is bright and bold and just a wonderful shade of deep pink.
Razzleberry Tieks come in the signature Tiek Blue box and although they don't come with a specially created flower box topper (like some of the more recent limited-edition releases like Drago Tieks or newer releases like Sapphire Tieks or Emerald Tieks), they did come with a coordinating flower that was already in rotation. I won't go through everything that comes in the box because I've gone over that in my full Tieks review, but you should check that out if you haven't seen it yet.
These designer flats are made from patent leather so they're easy to wipe clean. Although, the trade-off is that you can't simply polish away scuffs like you can on the classic leather Tieks.
How to store patent leather flats like Razzleberry
A word to the wise about patent leather flats (or any patent leather really): be careful with how you store them. As mentioned on the Tieks care card that you'll receive with your shoes, you don't want to store any patent leather flats up next to anything else because they might absorb the color. This is known as color transfer and can leave a permanent discoloration on your shoes. I'm careful to keep my patent leather Tieks away from other shoes or items which might transfer color. I also leave my patent Tieks unfolded. If you're going to fold them, make sure you slip a piece of tissue paper to protect them from absorbing the color of the leather inside the shoe.
Like most of my other Tieks (with the exception of my Vegan Tieks), I ordered these in my regular size 9 and they fit perfectly. I'd say they're true to size. I'm usually an 8.5 in most shoes and a 9 in running shoes and always order a 9 in Tieks. If you're a half size, I usually recommend sizing up. If your Tieks are a tad small you can stretch them and if they're too big you can use an insole to take up a bit of space. You can read more in my posts about stretching leather shoes and the best insoles to wear in Tieks.
I love this vibrant shade of pink and will be ordering my daughter a matching pair in the next size up since she's now outgrown her Little Miss Tieks (you should see how adorable these little flats are on her!). I love a good mommy-and-me matching outfit and these flats are the most perfect finishing touch.
You can purchase these flats exclusively from the Tieks Boutiek.

I usually put these side-by-side photos in my very (VERY) long post about how to pick the perfect pair of Tieks shoes, but that post is getting a little heavy. So, I'm including them here for easy reference. Please do check out that post though - it's pretty epic!
