Tengries: Our Hippest Slipper 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.
I prefer being barefoot at home but my feet were always cold and my sheepskin slippers were too warm for this time of year. These are perfect: warm but not too warm, leather sole so no slipping on the hardwood floor, soft and mold to my feet, great colors, well made, very comfortable. I have narrow feet and wear a 9. The size 40 is just right but wouldn't have room for socks if I wanted them. I'd order a 41 next time if I decide I need socks. So far these really are just what I was looking for.
Awesome, love them!
This slippers fit perfect, like a pair of well worn slippers you love, only NEW. Love them.
Great slipper. Rubs a bit on the back of my heals but I'm sure that will go away once they wear in. Nicely made
These are my first pair of Kyrgies; after trying many brands over the years. They have been fantastic from day one. Comfortable, warm, not itchy even with bare feet. Absolutely a great investment. The only reason another Michigan winter is seeming possible this year!
