Kyrgies Molded All Naturals: Fully natural slippers with arch support
Find your feet again indoors with our Kyrgies Molded All Naturals, a house shoe designed for those wanting a firmer slipper. Handcrafted using natural wool felt, these shoes include a thick leather sole that has been specially molded to give orthopedic support to the base of your feet, as well as additional felt cushioning.
If you’re found conventional slippers leave your feet feeling flat and uncomfortable, our supportive house shoes will restore your faith. Not only will they keep your feet warm, cozy and dry thanks to the moisture-wicking properties of wool, but they’re made exclusively from natural materials. Whether you’ve faced chemical sensitivity to slippers in the past, or want arch support without compromising on a commitment to all-nature fashion, these house shoes will be the perfect fit.
Handcrafted by local artisans in our workshop in Kyrgyzstan from wool sourced from small, family-run farms, these shoes have sustainability woven into each and every fibre. What’s more, their vegetable-tanned leather sole not only provides arch support and a non-slip grip, but is better for the environment than standard chromium-dyed leathers.
Are these house shoes a sustainable fashion choice?
Oh yes! We’re proud of our commitment to sustainable, ethical fashion and environmental choices underpin everything we do. Our slippers are designed using natural materials where possible, including low-impact dyes and leather tanning practices that avoid the use of chromium, a highly toxic metal that can leach into waterways and poison ecosystems.
We aim to follow fair trade practices throughout our manufacturing process, including paying our staff in Kyrgyzstan fair and honest wages. What’s more, we’re committed to leaving the planet in a better position than we found it through our work with 1% for the Planet and by offsetting our carbon emissions through Carbon Neutral.
They look amazing; can I wear them outside to show them off to my neighbors?
We get it; all of our shoes look cool and we love showing them off to our friends. Unfortunately, any showcasing of your brand new slippers should take place inside the home. Kyrgies are designed to face the Great Indoors; wearing them out on the drive, pottering around the garage or roaming around the garden will only lead to misshapen wool felt for your shoes and bitter disappointment for you. Seriously, keep them indoors.
I’m sold! How can I buy the perfect size orthotic slipper?
As with all handmade products, sizing can vary from slipper to slipper, despite the careful work of our artisans in Kyrgyzstan. To avoid disappointment, if you’re between sizes, we recommend choosing the larger shoe.
If you do find that your slipper doesn’t fit perfectly, we offer free returns and exchanges.
How can I keep my Kyrgies in tip-top condition?
The most important thing you can do is keep your brand new house slippers away from the laundry room. Wool felt is designed to keep your feet warm and dry by wicking away moisture, but it doesn’t react well to being washed. Contact with water can cause your slippers to shrink or lose their shape.
If the worst happens and you have an accident with bacon grease or similar (yup, we’ve all done it), a trip to your local dry cleaners should return your shoes to new.
