Size Guide

Sabah sizing is unique to our brand. Please read below.

Our sizing chart is TRUE TO SIZE and takes into account that Sabahs should fit snug as they will stretch. Use your standard US or European (EUR) shoe size in loafers, slip-ons or comparable leather shoes to determine your Sabah size per the sizing chart below.

--

Each Style Fits Differently.

Our Sabahs (full shoes) and Babas (backless slides) fit differently as denoted on the sizing chart below. Simply select +1 size larger in Babas than Sabahs.

*Please, also note - There is a sizing difference between our Turkish made & El Paso Made Babas.

There are El Paso specific sizing charts on the relevant product pages.

Width

We make Sabahs in two styles/widths: Mens and Womens.

Women’s Sabahs are narrower than men’s Sabahs and are a medium to narrow width. Our men’s Sabahs are a standard medium width. We find the width of our shoes fit MOST feet, particularly given they stretch and form to one's feet.

Some of our female customers with wider feet prefer the fit of a Men's Sabah, given the added width. And, vice-versa, for men with narrow feet.

The rule of thumb for finding the length equivalent of a Women's Sabah in a Men's size is to subtract 2 numerical sizes.

  • Women's 42 is the same length as a Men's 40. Or vice-versa.

Returns

We only accept returns for items that are in new, unworn condition.

If you have worn your Sabahs outside, we cannot accept them back for a return as we cannot restock and sell a worn (or even slightly worn) pair.

Each pair will be carefully inspected upon return, to ensure quality.

Sizing FAQ:

What kind of fit is the best fit?

Sabahs should initially fit snug as they are made entirely of natural leather and will stretch & mold to your feet with wear. Depending on your feet and regularity of use, the stretching process may take a few days or a few weeks.

TOES: Your toes should touch the end of the Sabah with some pressure. They should not be curling and you should not be in pain.

HEEL SLIP: Do not be concerned if there is minor slippage in the heel. Sabahs are leather-lined and will grip your feet as you walk.

Do you make half sizes?

For now, Sabahs only come in whole sizes - but thankfully accommodate almost everyone because they stretch!

How long will it take to break in my Sabahs?

The time frame for breaking in Sabahs can range from a week to a month, depending how often the customer wears them, the initial fit, type of leather and maybe just a bit of luck :) However, Sabahs should start to open up after a few wears. Additionally, it may help to wear your Sabahs with thick socks to expedite the break-in process. But please note -- breaking in can mean really needing to wear and move in your Sabahs -- long walks, flexing the leather, leaning into them a few times; not just around the house. Rarely that much effort is required, but it can be!

Finally, if customers struggle to break them in, we suggest taking your Sabahs to a local cobbler, as they can stretch them in exact places.

Do you make Sabahs in different widths?

We make Sabahs in two styles/widths: Mens and Womens.

Women’s Sabahs are narrower than men’s Sabahs and are a medium to narrow width. Our men’s Sabahs are a standard medium width.

Many of our female customers prefer the fit of a Men's Sabah, given the added width. This is quite common! And vice-versa for Men with narrow feet.

The rule of thumb for finding the length equivalent of a Women's Sabah in a Men's size is to subtract 2 numerical sizes.

  • Women's 42 is the same length as a Men's 40.

If I send you my foot measurements, can you provide me with the perfect fit?

We can certainly align our measurements with your measurements so feel free to email us at portal@sabah.am for advice.

I can feel the inside stitching of my Sabahs. Is that normal?

Yes, some customers can feel the insole stitching and may even find it uncomfortable. However, the inside stitching is a simple waxed cotton string and will gradually soften to become unnoticeable in a short time.

My toe touches the end of my Sabahs, but they do not hurt or curl my toes. Are they too small?

No, Sabahs should fit between snug and very snug (toes touch the end; even with pressure) as they will stretch. As long as your toes are not curling or in pain, you have the right fit.
