Kyrgies Classic Wool House Shoes in a simple low-back style
Kyrgies classic style featuring a synthetic felt sole with silicone grips.
Kyrgies classics provide the ultimate in cozy vibes with classic craftsmanship. They are handmade using felting techniques that are centuries-old. The unique texture of these house shoes will invigorate your feet all year round.
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.
The sizing on our product pages is a translation of the European sizing that is stamped on the bottom of our slippers. We've developed our translation to US sizes based on the feedback of our customers. If you think you are in between sizes, we suggest selecting the larger size.
Kyrgies do not like to get wet. Like wool sweaters, they will shrink and become misshapen. The magic of wool felt is that it wicks moisture and shouldn't ever smell. If you do spill motor oil or bacon grease all over your Kyrgies, you can save them by getting them dry cleaned. Just do not wash Kyrgies with water. It will change your Kyrgies and they will be rendered unwearable.
True to our name, Krygies are house shoes and will support your feet in comfort on carpeted or hardwood floors. But they are not designed to be worn outdoors.
My husband and I couldn't figure out why our wood floors had suddenly gotten very slippery when we walked around in socks. Eventually figured out is was from my new Kyrgies. Now we need to clean a bunch of silicone off wood, socks, and carpets....not easy. The slippers are great, but this is really frustrating.
These slippers are great, especially if you have wide feet. The only reason they aren't 5 stars is that the inside sheds a little when my feet sweat.
I've recently purchased my first pair of Kyrgies (classic wool slippers low-back) for wearing around the house -- exactly as I'd expected. I find them to be true-to-size, and keep my feet a perfect temperature: not too hot, not too cool. Also, and as expected, I wouldn't walk around in them overly much as there isn't 'support', but for lounging and just kicking back they're perfect.
This is my second pair of slippers. Last year and this year I have/had size 37. Last year’s pair was very roomy and was comfortable enough to put on a pair of socks. This year’s size is considerably narrower, and seems a tad shorter. There is very little room for adding a sock.
I love these slippers so much! They are super light weight and cozy. I got mine a size up and added the insoles as well. I'm recommending them to everyone I know!
