The Hippest Kyrgies Yet, With Vegetal Tanned Leather Soles
Handmade felt, fair trade practices, crazy cool house and office shoes for all seasons
Tengries are a sewn slipper, with a slightly different feel than the rolled felt that makes up our other models. The felt in our Tengries is softer and more pliable, so it will fit to your feet like a warm hug. This felt is cut out of a large felt sheet, then those cut pieces are sewn together by hand. Tengries are kept snug by an elastic that helps them form to your feet. so they're a snug fit. These feature high-backs, and a pull on tab.
The leather on this sole is a vegetal tanned leather that tanned without the use of toxic chromium. The result is a thicker and plusher leather that wears in nicely. We do highly discourage wearing this in any wet conditions.
Flights from Kyrgyzstan to the United States are currently sporadic due to the pandemic. We have recently restocked in several popular styles. We will restocking additional styles as soon as we can. We will announce restocks on social media and in our email notifications.
While my Kyrgies arrived during a summer heatwave, I had to try them. They are beautiful and comfortable; the perfect footwear on hardwood floors in the winter, and even in the summer when the A/C is a bit much.
My Kyrgies Tengries are awesome! Super comfortable, soft-soled, and without a doubt the coolest looking house cruisers I have ever had.
Love the color and the comfort level. Just what I was looking for!
I've been digging my Kyrgies. Nice color (I got plum) and they're comfortably snug.
And beautifully made, with the feel of human craftsmanship and devotion to fine work. Am tucking them away in the cedar chest till Rocky Mountain winter, quite delighted. Thank you. I recommend your work to clients, family and friends.
