The Tieks Black Friday release has become quite the event. Every year, Tieks by Gavrieli offers a special edition ballet flat from Black Friday until Cyber Monday, while supplies last. Take a look at the 2021 Black Friday release, Tahitian Peal Tieks.
Each year, Tieks offers a limited edition shoe for Black Friday. Unlike other companies and stores that offer deep discounts on Black Friday, Tieks skips the sales. Instead, they create excitement and generate sales by offering a special release of a special pair of their gorgeous flats.
I explain this in greater detail in my full post about Tieks Black Friday sales. I go over all the details and recap each year's limited edition shoe. I also talk about the fact that Tieks doesn't really offer deals or sales in my All About Tieks post.
Tahitian Pearl Tieks
Sometimes, we know what the color or print is going to be before Black Friday, but other times it's a surprise. In 2021, Tieks gave us a countdown on their website announcing the color with a few details.
Tahitian Pearl Tieks were described as a treasure hidden beneath the waves of French Polynesian lagoons. Tieks went on to say that Tahitian Pearls are coveted for their rarity and deep color.
Like all of their supple flats, Tahitian Pearl Tieks came beautifully packaged with a special Tahitian Topper. The pearl box topper is adorned with glistening white and blue-green pearls. It also came with a special notecard. I won't go over everything that comes in a Tieks package because I cover that in my extensive Tieks review. If you'd like to see most of the Tieks box toppers then click that link to view that gorgeous eye candy.
Tahitian Pearl Tieks are a beautiful blue-green color made from metallic full-grain leather.
How much did Tahitian Pearl Tieks cost?
When offered, these metallic leather flats cost $195. Obviously, they're no longer available from Tieks so you'd have to find them on a resale site like Tradesy (use my affiliate link to get $20 off your first $50+ purchase) or Poshmark (use code LOOKOUTLOU to save $10 on your first purchase).
Are they true to size?
My Tahitian Pearl Tieks were soft and comfortable right away. I'm size 8.5 in most brands of shoes, but always a 9 in running shoes. Although Tieks says you can usually side down *(except if you have wide feet), I always size up to a size 9 in Tieks. The exceptions are Vegan Tieks, Mojave Tieks, and Seafield Check Tieks.
Tahitian Pearl Tieks compared to other green Tieks
This is usually what people want to see. Since I have a large collection of Tieks shoes, I can show you side-by-side comparisons with other shades of green Tieks.

How do your care for Tahitian Pearl Tieks?
Luckily, Tieks are soft leather. They can be cleaned with a bit of leather cleaner and conditioner when needed. Check out my post for how to care for Tieks flats to see my product recommendations.
I haven't scuffed my Tahitian Peal Tieks yet, but from what I've researched in the Tieks Anonymous Facebook group, another member has and used Tarrago Pineneedle #13 mixed with Prima Marketing Green Brocade Art Alchemy-Opal Magic Wax for the shimmer. Thank you, Bonnie T. for that information!
