Outdoor Tengries: wool slipper-style shoes that you can wear inside AND outside
Wear your Tengries Outside!
Nothing better typifies the Kyrgies brand than these handmade felt house shoes, which will help you stay professional without compromising on comfort, and now you can wear them outside! Kyrgies Outdoor Tengries feature flexible and durable rubber soles that provide grip outside.
Available in two amazing and lovingly handcrafted by artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Outdoor 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 sewn into the fabric, they’re designed to adapt snugly to your feet, all while still allowing you to pull them on with ease. The result? Shoes so cozy they’ll be like a warm hug all the way up to your ankles.
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 durably, pliable, and less sensitive to heat.
Talk to me about why Tengries are an eco-friendly choice
We never compromise on quality or conscious decision-making 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 minimise our environmental impact, all while maximising the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at our factory in Kyrgyzstan.
How can I work out which size will fit?
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 (or one of our specially-designed insoles) 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?
As we’ve said above, your Tengries should be kept 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.
