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.
I was unable to get a comfortable fit (one foot bigger than the other) so unfortunately I ended up returning the Tengries. I will say that the craftsmanship and materials appeared to be of high quality, and my experience with the returns (tried 2 sizes) was very easy.
Amazing. Warm. Comfy.
I’m very happy with the fit, feel
& look of my new Tengries. I ordered a 9/9.5 (I used advice to size up, as I am normally an 8.5/9) and an able to pull them on easily, even with my high arches. I was looking for a sustainable brand with high quality slippers, & needed to look no further.
We bought The kids Tengries slippers for our 8 year old son after looking endlessly for a brand that would fit his preferences and functional needs. These are a hit! He described them as cozy and comfortable and let’s him run around the house without them falling off. :) He has also committed to packing them on our weekend ski trip adventures. Win!
