I bought these ballet flats as an alternative to spending a lot of money on Tieks. I've been looking for a comfortable ballet flat for a long time and have tried many different brands. The Yosi Samra and Tieks are definitely the best for me. I have foot pain and need comfortable flats for the few times that my attire requires something other than running shoes. :)
After wearing both, I'm struggling to decide which to keep. There are differences between the two shoes.
First, is materials. You can tell that high quality materials are being used on the Tieks. This doesn't mean that the Yosi Samra are in any way inferior, but there is a definite difference. Personally, I like the fact that the Yosi Samra has a black bottom and not the eye catching blue on the Tieks. The Yosi's weigh slightly less, but nothing to cause concern about. Tieks are hand-stitched, Yosi's are not.
Second, packaging. Both flats come in a fun box. The Yosi's include a nice black travel bag. The Tieks include a fun flower over their box and include two travel type bags. I find the small black travel bag that comes with the Tieks unusable - you really have to squash the flats into that bag. It also comes with a blue, grocery shopping type bag that I think is almost too big. Yosi's travel bag is perfect in this regard - not too big, not too small - perfect for many uses.
Third, how they feel. Both are comfortable. The soles on the Tieks are firmer than the Yosi's. The Yosi's are springy and cushiony. Despite the firmness versus cushiness - they are both comfortable to wear - this is really going to come down to personal preference.
At the time of writing this review, I still have not made a decision on which to keep, but here's what else I'm considering.
Cost - I splurged for the Tieks and took them on a trip. I was afraid to pack them in my checked luggage. I wouldn't be afraid of packing the Yosi's in my checked luggage if I needed to.
Long term durability - I don't expect the Yosi's to last as long as the Tieks. This might be a perception thing based on price and at this point I can't validate this statement.
Use - I don't wear flats that often so they cost breakdown is not as good with the Tieks.
A lot of this is really subjective depending on how much you plan to wear the shoes, foot problems, budget, etc. If you have the money to spend and wear flats a lot, it might be better to splurge on the Tieks. If you don't, the Yosi's are perfectly comfortable and nice looking too.
I hesitated in buying these for awhile because of the higher price point, but after ordering, I assure you, they are worth every penny. They are very well made and stand up to a lot of abuse. I wear them every day for work and after almost a month they have little to no wear. They are, essentially, a cheaper version of Tieks with a solid-color bottom at half the cost. They're super, super comfortable and provide a surprising amount of support for a flat, ballet-style shoe.
They ran a little wide for my foot, but after a week or so of wearing, they formed to my feet.

However, every time I take them off I have stong black dye on my toes and it is getting worse with time. For the price paid, it is uncalled for. Not happy about the purchase.
The material stained my feet.
