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 are cut and hand-sewn into shape. As a result, they’re far softer and more pliable than the 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 or rubber. The result is 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 is an eco-friendly choice
We never compromise on quality or conscious decision-making for any of the products. All of the house shoes have been made using low-impact dyes and are chemical-free, while the 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, the leather provides a thick, cushioned layer that adapts to your feet for absolute comfort.
What’s more, through the commitments to 1% for the Planet and Carbon Neutral, we go out of the way to minimize the environmental impact, all while maximizing the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at the 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 the specially-designed insoles) should do the trick.
Please note that being handcrafted, the slippers have a small chance of coming up larger or smaller in size than expected.
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.
