Tengries: Smart wool house shoes perfect for your home office
Transport yourself from home to home office without even changing your shoes thanks to our smart, durable and exceedingly comfortable Tengries. Nothing better typifies the Kyrgies brand than these handmade felt house shoes, which will help you stay professional without compromising on comfort.
Lovingly handcrafted by artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, 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 leather 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? House shoes so cozy they’ll be like a warm hug all the way up to your ankles.
They may look smart enough to be worn outside, but Tengries are strictly house shoes. While wool is your ultimate companion for making sweaty feet a thing of the past (they’re moisture-wicking and odor resistant, after all), felted wool doesn’t perform well in wet conditions. Where it does perform is within the home, on everything from carpet to hardwood floors. Tengries aren’t the ticket for taking out the garbage; instead, think of them as a house shoe that won’t make you blush when your boss catches sight of them on Zoom.
Kyrgies are chemical free and use vegetable tanned leather soles rather than the highly toxic chromium normally employed in the tanning process.
Kyrgie's commitment to low-impact and socially-responsible fashion doesn’t end there, though. All of Kyrgie's wool is sourced from small, family-owned flocks, while their factory in Kyrgyzstan pays fair wages to all its staff. They also work closely with a range of nonprofits and environmental movements to ensure our 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.
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.
How do I know which size will fit?
As these slippers are handcrafted, sizing does vary a little, for optimum comfort, we recommend choosing the larger size if you’re between sizes.
