Description From Kyrgies
Kid's Indoor and Outdoor Tengries Walkabouts!
We could not be more excited to announce the return of kids' Tengries!We've made some major enhancements this time around. A durable rubber sole allows your kids to wear these anywhere they want go. The laced system with a cord lock makes it easy for little hands to put these on and lace them tight.
Kids' Tengries Walkabouts are available in Cold Gray, Magenta, and Heathered Navy.
Like all of our footwear, these are lovingly handcrafted by artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Tengries are made from large sheets of wool felt that is cut and hand sewn into shape. As a result, they’re far softer and more pliable than our rolled felt house shoes. With their non-slip rubber soles and elastic laces, they're designed to adapt snugly to little feet, while still allowing little ones to pull them on with ease. The result? Shoes as cozy as a warm hug.
Talk to me about the rubber you use for the sole
Walkabouts are made with vulcanized milk of rubber. The result: a sole that looks and feels very similar to crepe rubber, but is more durable, pliable, and less sensitive to heat.
Tell me why Tengries are an eco-friendly choice
We never compromise on quality for any of our products. All of our house shoes have been made using low-impact dyes and are chemical-free, while our Tengries use a thicker, vegetable-tanned leather on the sole — a tanning technique that avoids highly toxic chromium that can leach into and pollute waterways. As a result, our leather provides a thick, cushioned layer that adapts to your feet for absolute comfort.
What’s more, through our commitments to 1% for the Planet and Carbon Neutral, we go out of our way to minimize our environmental impact, all while maximizing the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at our factory in Kyrgyzstan.
How can I work out which size will fit?
Please refer to this size guide.
We always recommend choosing your normal size shoe, although if you’re between sizes, opt for the larger one. If your new house slippers do come up a little large, a cozy pair of socks should do the trick.
Please note that being handcrafted, our slippers have a small chance of coming up larger or smaller in size than expected. If this is the case, our fast returns service means you can swap them for the correct size.
How can I keep my Kyrgies clean?
Keep your Tengries far away from water. If you have an unfortunate accident involving bacon grease or similar, we recommend a quick trip to your nearest dry cleaners.
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.
