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 received the ordered Tengries quickly. I used the suggestion of several reviewers and ordered half a size up. They look exactly as pictured and fit nicely. Soft and non restricting, with flexible but sufficiently thick sole, they are comfortable and nice looking. I am familiar with the material they are made of so I am confident they will be ideal house shoes for winter. It’s high summer, so it’s a long time till I am to wear them. At least there is something to look forward to this year
Beautifully made, sizing accurate. Recommend for anyone. Very pleased with the slippers.
I ordered size medium for both orders.
I received 39 on one order and 38 on the second.
