Description From Kyrgies
Go low-key stylish this summer with the lightest and coolest pair of Kyrgies yet. The same all-natural wool from the same sustainable sources: this time they’re perfect for keeping your feet snug but still fresh on warm days.
Available in three gorgeously summery colours and lovingly handmade by our artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, our Kyrgies Slides are part of a felting tradition dating back thousands of years. Made from two pieces of felt that are cut and sewn together, they’re a summertime take on the classic Tengries. Expect all the comfort, just with a looser fit and slightly thinner felt that’ll keep your feet cool.
Wool might not sound like the perfect match for hotter days, but as both odor resistant and moisture wicking, it’ll work a type of magic. Not only will your feet stay cool and dry — even when the temperature creeps up — but the wool will help you avoid any unpleasant odors, too.
Are these house shoes as sustainable as the rest of the Kyrgies range?
Kyrgies is proud to say they are! As a company, they're concerned about what goes into the manufacturing processes of their house shoes and, as a result, onto our bodies. It’s for this very reason why all of their Kyrgies are chemical free and use vegetable tanned leather soles rather than the highly toxic chromium normally employed in the tanning process.
Their commitment to low-impact and socially-responsible fashion doesn’t end there, though. All of the wool is sourced from small, family-owned flocks, while their factory in Kyrgyzstan pays fair wages to all its staff. Kyrgies also works closely with a range of nonprofits and environmental movements to ensure their net impact is positive.
I love them! Wouldn’t they look wonderful out of the house, too?
Hold on! While we wish we had a pair of Kyrgies for every eventuality, the big no-no when it comes to these slippers is wearing them outside. They’re designed exclusively for the Great Indoors — however good they might look!
There’s a strong chance that contact with water will damage your new slippers, leading them to become misshapen and even uncomfortable. Avoid future regrets by keeping them in the comfort — and dryness — of your own home.
How do I know which size will fit?
As these slippers are handcrafted, sizing does vary a little, even though they do their best to ensure consistency across their shoes. For optimum comfort, they recommend choosing the larger size if you’re between sizes.
If the unthinkable happens and the slipper doesn’t fit, we operate a helpful returns policy for you to exchange for one that does.
I’m a klutz. What happens if I spill something on my new Kyrgies?
We can’t stress the following enough: don’t even consider getting a damp cloth or throwing them in the laundry. Water is not a friend of your Kyrgies! Instead, a trip to the dry cleaners will do the trick.
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.
