Tengries: Sleek House Shoes, With Vegetal Tanned Leather Soles
Handmade felt, fair trade practices, great house and office shoes for all seasons
Tengries house shoes are made of cut and sewn wool felt that is softer and more pliable than our rolled felt products. Think of them fitting your feet like a warm hug all the way up to your ankles.
This felt is cut out of a large felt sheet. Those cut pieces are then sewn together by hand. The secret to Tengries is bits elastic that help them keep snug around feet while allowing you to pull them on.
The leather on this sole is a vegetal tanned leather that is tanned without the use of toxic chromium. The result is a thicker and plusher leather that wears in nicely.
We do highly discourage wearing these outside in any wet conditions.
Please note that shipping may be slightly delayed as we work to ensure the health and safety of our staff.
The sizing on our product pages is a translation of the European sizing that is stamped on the bottom of our slippers. We've developed our translation to US sizes based on the feedback of our customers. If you think you are in between sizes, we suggest selecting the larger size.
Kyrgies do not like to get wet. Like wool sweaters, they will shrink and become misshapen. The magic of wool felt is that it wicks moisture and shouldn't ever smell. If you do spill motor oil or bacon grease all over your Kyrgies, you can save them by getting them dry cleaned. Just do not wash Kyrgies with water. It will change your Kyrgies and they will be rendered unwearable.
True to our name, Krygies are house shoes and will support your feet in comfort on carpeted or hardwood floors. But they are not designed to be worn outdoors.
Come home, kick off your work shoes, and slip your tired feet into some cozy slippers! Kyrgies works extra hard and meticulously to make sure that slipping on your house shoes is a bright spot in your day. Their sustainably-sourced wool is thermoregulating, meaning that your feet stay warm and cozy without getting hot and sweaty. Their molded orthopedic sole means that you get gentle support that will wear in instead of wearing out. And chrome-free leather and no harsh dyes or irritants means that these slippers are safe even for sensitive skin. These comfy, built-to-last, slippers are ethically handmade with eco-friendly practices by women in Kyrgyzstan earning a fair wage.
