Go low-key stylish with the lightest and coolest pair of Kyrgies yet. Enjoy the same all-natural wool from the same sustainable sources: this time they are in a lighter-weight slipper that's easier to get on and off your feet.
Available in four gorgeous colors and lovingly handmade by the artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, our Kyrgies Slides are part of a felting tradition dating back thousands of years. Made from sheets of felt that are cut and sewn together, they’re a lightweight and easy-to-slip-on take on the classic Tengries. Expect all the comfort, just with a looser fit and slightly thinner felt.
Are these house shoes as sustainable as the rest of the Kyrgies range?
We’re proud to say they are! As a company, we’re concerned about what goes into the manufacturing processes of the house shoes and, as a result, onto our bodies. It’s for this very reason that all of the Kyrgies are chemical-free and use vegetable-tanned leather soles rather than the highly toxic chromium normally employed in the tanning process.
the 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 our factory in Kyrgyzstan pays fair wages to all its staff. We also work closely with a range of nonprofits and environmental movements to ensure the 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 we do our best to ensure consistency across the shoes. For optimum comfort, we 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.
