Step Outside in Your Kyrgies!
Wear the Tengries you love everywhere with the new Walkabouts. Designed with a flexible and durable rubber sole, you can enjoy the comfort, durability, and warmth of your favorite Kyrgies’ style anywhere your day might take you.
Each pair is handcrafted by felt artisans in the Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan workshop who work from large sheets of pliable wool felt to develop the softest, coziest house shoes yet. The easy pull-on style forms around your foot, making each pair of Walkabouts uniquely perfect just for you.
The new super-durable crepe-style soles, made from vulcanized milk or rubber, ensure Tengries Walkabouts will provide insulation from the elements, grip surfaces firmly, and provide comfortable support.
Talk to me about why Tengries is an eco-friendly choice
High five! the Tengries Walkabouts are just as good for the planet as they are for your feet. Thanks to low-impact, chemical-free dyes, the shoemaking process never sacrifices quality for a commitment to less waste, a minimal environmental footprint, and fair-trade practices.
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.
