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.
At first I thought they were a bit too big (I bought 37 and usually wear a size 6.5) but I like a little wiggle room and can wear them well with thick socks. They are cozy and look great!
I purchased these as a gift for my wife. She loves them saying they are incredibly comfortable, cozy and fit perfect. They have a small amount of grip that is perfect for our wood floors and seem to work for the winter and spring temps here in Oregon. I’ll likely be asking for some for my birthday.
soles could offer a bit more support...
don't like having to be so concerned about not getting them wet!
I have been using these for about 2 weeks, and am thrilled with them. They are warm, but don’t make my feet sweat, and they slide on easily. I bought the inserts, which are really comfy, but I can’t seem to keep them from scrunching up. Either way, I love the slippers!!
My new Kyrgies slippers are probably the best I've ever owned (don't tell my Nana who knit me a ton when I was growing up). They're quiet, but with a non-slip sole. They're warm, but don't make my feet sweat. They're soft and comfortable without being bulky.
