Tengries: Smart wool house shoes perfect for your home office

Transport yourself from home to home office without even changing your shoes thanks to our smart, durable and exceedingly comfortable Tengries. Nothing better typifies the Kyrgies brand than these handmade felt house shoes, which will help you stay professional without compromising on comfort.

Available in six colorful shades and lovingly handcrafted by artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Tengries are made from large sheets of wool felt that is cut and hand sewn into shape. As a result, they’re far softer and more pliable than our rolled felt house shoes. With their non-slip leather soles and elastic sewn into the fabric, they’re designed to adapt snugly to your feet, all while still allowing you to pull them on with ease. The result? House shoes so cozy they’ll be like a warm hug all the way up to your ankles.

They may look smart enough to be worn outside, but Tengries are strictly house shoes. While wool is your ultimate companion for making sweaty feet a thing of the past (they’re moisture-wicking and odor resistant, after all), felted wool doesn’t perform well in wet conditions. Where it does perform is within the home, on everything from carpet to hardwood floors. Tengries aren’t the ticket for taking out the garbage; instead, think of them as a house shoe that won’t make you blush when your boss catches sight of them on Zoom.

Talk to me about why Tengries are an eco-friendly choice

We never compromise on quality or conscious decision-making for any of our products. All of our house shoes have been made using low-impact dyes and are chemical-free, while our Tengries use a thicker, vegetable tanned leather on the sole — a tanning technique that avoids highly toxic chromium that can leach into and pollute waterways. As a result, our leather provides a thick, cushioned layer that adapts to your feet for absolute comfort.

What’s more, through our commitments to 1% for the Planet and Carbon Neutral, we go out of our way to minimise our environmental impact, all while maximising the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at our factory in Kyrgyzstan.

FAQS

Hang on, these don’t even look like slippers! Can’t I just wear them outside?

Tengries certainly are deceptively cool looking slippers, but they’re definitely not a good choice for outdoors. Water can cause wool felt to misshapen, leaving your once cozy and cute Tengries house shoes a deformed mess — which we imagine isn’t the look you’re going for. Instead, keep them indoors where they’ll live a long and happy life.

How can I work out which size will fit?

We always recommend choosing your normal size shoe, although if you’re between sizes, opt for the larger one. If your new house slippers do come up a little large, a cozy pair of socks (or one of our specially-designed insoles) should do the trick.

Please note that being handcrafted, our slippers have a small chance of coming up larger or smaller in size than expected. If this is the case, our fast returns service means you can swap them for the correct size.

How can I keep my Kyrgies clean?

As we’ve said above, your Tengries should be kept far away from water. If you have an unfortunate accident involving bacon grease or similar, we recommend a quick trip to your nearest dry cleaners.

The cold person's friend

If, like me, you find yourself putting on aaallllll your clothes as soon as the warm weather is over, you will be amazed by these slippers. They are so warm yet breathable that my feet are always comfortable, which gives me more choice for the rest of what I wear. I've had many kinds of warm slippers, and some of them have been good, but not as good as this.

There are only two downsides: I have to wear fairly thick socks to keep the wool from itching my skin (but I would be wearing these socks anyway), and they are so comfy that I don't want to leave the house because I have to take them off.

So comfortable and breathable, yet warm! It's perfect for early mornings with our tile floors. The plum color is beautiful. It took about a day to get used to the wool feeling, but now I feel naked without them!

The Best, Really the Best

Slippers in general are designed to keep toes warm and never mind about the heels and ankles. But cold NE USA winters are dry, your heels crack, your ankles are as cold as the drafts. Tengries solve all that beautifully. I have worn them with and without socks and they are comfy either way. Probably will use socks to keep them as clean as possible. But the wool walls of the slipper are thick and firm, but have enough stretch to go on easily. The thoughtful little tab at the back makes pulling them on simple. There are going to be quite a few recipients of Kyrgies on my Christmas list, although I will probably go the gift card route and let the recipients decide how much heel and ankle need to be warmed! (Maybe some will want the adorable kid-size slippers?) And the fair practices of the Kyrgies company are admirable.

Great slippers!

I was looking for some wool slippers to replace my old worn out pair, and stumbled upon these. They are super comfy, good quality wool, quality soles, well made. Keep you warm, but are still breathable so your feet don't get too hot. Just what I was looking for.
