Kyrgies Classic: Stylishly simple felted wool slippers
Classic in design and classic in name: our Classic felted wool slippers are our original Kyrgies style. While our designs might have changed across the years, the quality, comfort and classic craftsmanship of these wool house shoes has not. Think timeless, indoor fashion that’s the perfect fit for lounging, relaxing and embarking on the Great Indoors.
Thousands of years of artisanship and tradition go into every pair of Kyrgies. Luxuriously soft on your feet, our slip on house shoes are handcrafted from rolled wool felt using techniques borne upon the steppes of Central Asia centuries ago. Made from all-natural wool taken from small, family-herded flocks in Kyrgyzstan, these classic indoor slippers make the best of their natural properties: wool is both moisture-wicking and odor resistant, keeping your feet warm and dry, whatever the season.
Available in four colors, and with a non-slip sole for stability on hardwood floors, as well as a low back to make them easy to slip on or off, these Kyrgies will quickly become a staple of your comfy, stay-at-home style.
What makes Kyrgies Classics such a sustainable choice of house shoe?
Part of the magic of all of our Kyrgies slippers is how minimal their environmental impact is. Our Classics contain just four materials: wool, glue (made from natural rubber), polyester felt and silicone grips. 90% of the wool comes from small-scale, family-run farms situated close to our factory in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, while our use of low-impact dyes and water waste treatment facilities limit the environmental impact of making our boiled wool slippers.
Each pair of Kyrgies house shoes is handcrafted by local, Kyrgyz artisans, who are paid a fair wage for their work. In fact, your purchase keeps our factory in operation, where 80% of employees are women. You can learn more by visiting our sustainability and craftsmanship pages.
These look so comfortable! Can I wear my new Kyrgies outdoors?
However much you might be tempted, we strongly recommend keeping your Kyrgies as indoor slippers. Wet conditions can cause wool felt to shrink or become misshapen; so, to keep your shoes in optimum condition, reserve them for use as part of your home uniform.
What size do you recommend I buy?
As our slippers are handcrafted, there’s a small chance that the sizing may vary, even if you’ve previously bought one size and found it fitted perfectly. If you’re between sizes, we recommend choosing the larger one. Once your Kyrgies have arrived, if they are the incorrect size, we do offer a quick and easy returns service so you can swap for one that fits.
How do I clean my Kyrgies?
We can’t stress this enough: please do not clean your Kyrgies with water! Thanks to the natural properties of the felted wool which they’re made of, your brand new house slippers should avoid retaining odor and continue smelling like roses for their lifetime. However, if you do spill grease or any other liquid that stains, a quick trip to the dry cleaners will return them back to new.
I really like my Kyrgies (so warm!) but I got the wrong size for me. I’m a 6.5 US and ended up getting the size 37 Kyrgies because the website recommended sizing up if between sizes. However, I’ve found that as you walk in them, the material does “flatten” some (even with the additional soles inside), naturally creating more room inside the slipper. This means that my Kyrgies still fit, but they are a little too roomy. Not enough that I fall out of them but enough that I have to wear socks if I don’t want the slipper to feel loose.
I definitely recommend buying Kyrgies but be careful of sizes. I didn’t realize I got the wrong size for me until a week after wearing them daily because that’s how long it took to “flatten” enough that the slipper became noticeably looser.
I have never had a pair of slippers that I love like these. I wish they had a pair I could wear outdoors. Would definitely buy another pair.
Love these slippers. Warm, fit beautifully and oh so pretty. I’ll be buying some for family.
I love them, they are stylish and well made ! There comments on sizing are accurate. And very warm. Can’t wait to get a second pair !!!
The original gray pair I ordered was too big. I reached out to customer service asking for a smaller size replacement, and they promptly sent me a return label. The replacement pair is amazingly comfortable. Thank you!
