Kyrgies All Naturals feature a thick chrome-free leather suede 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.
This was a gift and I hear they love them!
I have the high back Kyrgies and I ordered the insoles to put in them. They were a little stiff for the first week but seem to be softening and becoming more comfortable. The width is ample. I have a high instep so they are a little hard to get on but not terribly so. I like the extra cushion that the insoles provide. I have the leather soles so they are not slippery on the wood floors but they don't make a lot of noise either. I don't like the clicking harder soled slippers make. They are very warm. Definitely worth a try.
I absolutely love these slippers my condo is on the cold side and I always have slippers on. These are wonderful and my feet do not get too hot in them.
Super comfy + warm for the Canadian winter. Beautiful craftsmanship!
