Tengries: Dapper wool house shoes perfect for your home office
Transport yourself from home to home office without even changing your shoes thanks to 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 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
Kyrgies never compromises on quality or conscious decision-making for any of their products. All of the house shoes have been made using low-impact dyes and are chemical-free, while their 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, this leather provides a thick, cushioned layer that adapts to your feet for absolute comfort.
What’s more, through their commitments to 1% for the Planet and Carbon Neutral, Kyrgies go out of their way to minimize environmental impact, all while maximizing the positive social impact of adopting fair-trade practices at our factory in Kyrgyzstan.
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 probably 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?
Kyrgies always recommends 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 their specially-designed insoles) should do the trick.
Please note that being handcrafted, the slippers have a small chance of coming up larger or smaller in size than expected.
How can I keep my Kyrgies clean?
As Kyrgies have 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.
