Finally, a narrower and snugger pair of Kyrgies with built in arch support, the Kyrgies Molded All Naturals have arrived.
Kyrgies Molded All Naturals feature a thick chrome-free leather suede sole built over a molded orthopedic last and include additional felt cushioning in the sole.
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.
All Kyrgies are handmade using felting techniques that are centuries-old. The unique texture of these house shoes are the ultimate in hygge homeware. And for the more active types, they will invigorate your feet after a long day at work or a round at the gym.
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.
In short, buying Kyrgies was an all-round great experience--the customer service was about the best I've ever experienced, and the product is wonderful. Details: my Kyrgies arrived on a Friday. I had ordered a size larger than I normally would have, based on other feedback that said to size up if you're between sizes. Well, for men at least, I think that advice was wrong, because mine were clearly too big. So I emailed Kyrgies, and literally within 10 minutes received a friendly email response, and another email with a pre-paid return label attached. I got the too-large Kyrgies in the mail the same day. By the following Thursday, I had received my new Kyrgies. These fit just fine, so my lesson learned is--if you think you're in-between sizes, consider buying the smaller size. The quality and construction of these slippers is great, and they are really, really comfortable. This coming from a guy who hates slippers--these are so perfect, I forget I have them on. With a week's wear on them now, they appear to be very durable, too. I certainly recommend these.
I just received my purple Kyrgies and we have already fallen in love. (Kyrgies All Natural Molded Sole - Low Back - Royal Lilac) There's something about wool and something extra special about something made by hand. Already they feel like little cozy friends on my feet! It's so cold here today (in Ontario) that all the schools, buses and many workplaces are closed. So it's a great time to be cozy! I bought a pair for my husband in the fall and he loves his (in grey). The purple is perfect, very deep and rich and just beautiful! Thank you
The color is beautiful (navy) and the low back is perfect for slipping feet into quickly and easily. The size was spot on with the usual size I wear for shoes. Overall, I’m very pleased with the purchase.
Wonderfully comfortable and just what we needed!
