Kyrgies All Naturals feature a thick chrome-free leather suede sole.
Kyrgies All Naturals are built on a wider mold with less orthopedic shape to them. We recommend this model for those of you that have wider feet, or simply prefer a wider fit.
For people who suffer chemical sensitivities, these are the perfect pair of slippers. The felt is made of wool, water, natural soap, and low-impact dyes. The leather is tanned without chrome or chromium.
The leather soles are durable and provide excellent grip. Leather soles are a style that have a natural feel and have stood the test of time.
Kyrgies house shoes are handmade in Kyrgyzstan by artisans using felting techniques that are, literally, centuries old. By wearing Kyrgies, you are embracing an old tradition of felted wool that was originally developed on the steppes of Central Asia but spread around the Western World via the infamous Silk Road. While our modern lives have brought us many conveniences, some things simply can't be improved upon. Wool felted shoes are one of those things.
The sizing on our product pages is a translation of the European sizing that is stamped on the bottom of our slippers. We've developed our translation to US sizes based on the feedback of our customers. If you think you are in between sizes, we suggest selecting the larger size.
Kyrgies do not like to get wet. Like wool sweaters, they will shrink and become misshapen. The magic of wool felt is that it wicks moisture and shouldn't ever smell. If you do spill motor oil or bacon grease all over your Kyrgies, you can save them by getting them dry cleaned. Just do not wash Kyrgies with water. It will change your Kyrgies and they will be rendered unwearable.
True to our name, Krygies are house shoes and will support your feet in comfort on carpeted or hardwood floors. But they are not designed to be worn outdoors.
Got these for my wife for our 7 year anniversary. She absolutely loves them. Coincidentally enough, she got me an identical pair, same color liners as well.
I took a chance to order these to replace a pair of wool Geisswein slippers. They are by far superior in construction since they have a leather bottom and firmer wool that doesn't shed. Due to the firmer wool it takes a couple days to break them in but now they feel great. They run small so I'd order one size up. The company has free returns in the US which I had to take advantage of since my normal size 40 was about an inch too small.
I tend to have sweaty feet. So, I got the liners so I could replace them and extend the life of the slippers. But then my feet sweat on the bottom. Otherwise, I like the style. Leather is a little stiffer than expected, but OK - just a little loud on a hard floor. Untreated leather picks up lots of stuff and gets pretty gross, and is hard to treat.
We ordered these for our daughter in law. When ordering the insoles, we did not realize the size for the slippers defaulted to size 5. Customer service noticed the disconnect between the size of insoles vs. slippers and reached out before shipping to verify sizes. Within moments, my order was corrected and we got the order with the correct sizes in days. Great company to work with! My daughter in law has not received these yet for Christmas, so I can’t say anything else about them. They looked great when we wrapped them.
Warm, comfy and nice looking slippers...
