Kyrgies Classic: Stylishly simple felted wool slippers
Classic in design and classic in the name: the Classic felted wool slippers are the original Kyrgies style. While the designs might have changed over the years, the quality, comfort, and classic craftsmanship of these wool house shoes have not. Think timeless, indoor fashion that's the perfect fit for lounging, relaxing, and embarking on the Great Indoors.
Thousands of years of artisanship and tradition go into every pair of Kyrgies. Luxuriously soft on your feet, the slip-on house shoes are handcrafted from rolled wool felt using techniques borne upon the steppes of Central Asia centuries ago. Made from all-natural wool taken from small, family-herded flocks in Kyrgyzstan, these classic indoor slippers make the best of their natural properties: wool is both moisture-wicking and odor resistant, keeping your feet warm and dry, whatever the season.
Available in four colors, and with a non-slip sole for stability on hardwood floors, as well as a low back to make them easy to slip on or off, these Kyrgies will quickly become a staple of your comfy, stay-at-home style.
What makes Kyrgies Classics such a sustainable choice of house shoe?
Part of the magic of all of the Kyrgies' slippers is how minimal their environmental impact is. The Classics contain just four materials: wool, glue (made from natural rubber), polyester felt, and silicone grips. 90% of the wool comes from small-scale, family-run farms situated close to the factory in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, while the use of low-impact dyes and water waste treatment facilities limit the environmental impact of making boiled wool slippers.
Each pair of Kyrgies house shoes is handcrafted by local, Kyrgyz artisans, who are paid a fair wage for their work. In fact, your purchase keeps the factory in operation, where 80% of employees are women.
These look so comfortable! Can I wear my new Kyrgies outdoors?
However much you might be tempted, we strongly recommend keeping your Kyrgies as indoor slippers. Wet conditions can cause wool felt to shrink or become misshapen; so, to keep your shoes in optimum condition, reserve them for use as part of your home uniform.
What size do you recommend I buy?
As the slippers are handcrafted, there is a small chance that the sizing may vary, even if you've previously bought one size and found it fitted perfectly. If you are between sizes, we recommend choosing the larger one. Once your Kyrgies have arrived, if they are the incorrect size, we do offer a quick and easy returns service so you can swap for one that fits.
How do I clean my Kyrgies?
We can't stress this enough: please do not clean your Kyrgies with water! Thanks to the natural properties of the felted wool, which they are made of, your brand-new house slippers should avoid retaining odor and continue smelling like roses for their lifetime. However, if you do spill grease or any other liquid that stains, a quick trip to the dry cleaners will return them back to new.
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.
