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.
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.
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 commitment to 1% for the Planet, we go out of our way to minimize our environmental impact, all while maximizing the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at our factory in Kyrgyzstan.

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.
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.
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.
Wonderful slippers that are made to last. My only issue is that the texture of the leather soles eventually wears down very smooth and shiny. This makes them slippery--at least for me. I've almost fallen down our carpeted stairs multiple times. Kyrgies didn't sell the Walkabouts model when I made my purchase, or I would have orderd those originally. Luckily, I love these slippers so much that I'm happy to buy a new pair with the rubber bottom. (And gift my current pair to someone less accident prone!)
The Tengries are very warm and they have arch support! Also, they are slip resistant. I’ll purchase another pair before Christmas!
I bought these hoping they would be better than the normal slippers I buy. They hey are by far the best slippers for in the house that I have ever purchased. They are comfortable easy to slip on and don’t slip on hard wood floors.
Thanks Krygies for providing a awesome house shoe.
I wear men’s size 12 US. I had a pair of the rubber-soled Kyrgies (size 46) and when the rubber started to tear after a year, I replaced them with the leather-soled version and sized up to 47, which is perfect for me. I like the leather-soled ones better as they are quite secure on wood floors and I hope they will be more durable. Very cozy and comfortable.
