El Paso Shearling Baba


This wintertime Baba is all about how it ages thanks to our use of undyed, vegetable tanned saddle leather. Just like it's unlined sibling, the El Paso Shearling Baba starts out smooth, light and bright and develops a rich, golden hue and takes on a gorgeous patina with wear. We line these with the all-natural, extra fluffy long-haired Shearling we're known for -- the leather and fur will form into your feet, becoming unimaginably cozy & comfortable with time. Speaking of time, these Babas are handmade to last -- many seasons to come!

dealer's notes

- Less than 10% of the world's leather is vegetable tanned; it's difficult & expensive, but worth the effort. Vegetable tanned leather is especially durable and forms to one's feet unlike anything else.

About the El Paso Shearling Baba

In early 2019, we landed on El Paso, Texas as the home of the second Sabah Workshop. Our vision is for our El Paso Sabah Workshop to be a place that produces the same beautiful Sabahs & Babas you’ve come to know, that serves as an outpost for collaboration between our Turkish and American craftspeople, and is a hub for innovation, creativity and new ideas. El Paso, like Gaziantep, is a border town with a history of trade and craftsmanship. Amongst many things, El Paso has a rich history in leather working and cowboy boot making, specifically using saddle leather which is a wonderful, undyed leather that is 100% vegetable tanned and used in the making of the El Paso Shearling Baba. That said, our veg tanned El Paso Shearling Baba takes the idea of "breaking in your pair" & "patina" to a whole new level. Like the most well-worn saddle, or a beautiful set of boots -- these Babas start out smooth and light in color and only get richer, more beautiful and perfectly molded to your feet with every step.


For Nights in by the Fire, & for Staying Cozy on the Go

Shearling Babas are made for both (and everything in-between) -- These unique fur lined Babas can certainly be your companion around the home, but they are also durable enough to join you for your adventures on the road & beyond.

Your Questions Answered

How do I determine my proper size?

All of our styles are true to size; however, each unique silhouette differs numerically.

You can expect to take a different sizeway for Sabahs, Turkish made backless Babas, & El Paso made Babas. You can view the exact style type on the relevant product page.

We recommend selecting the numerical size that directly corresponds to your typical EUR/US shoe size in the drop down menu on each specific product page.

We certainly understand that juggling various numbers, sizes, & fits can feel daunting at first, so please do not hesitate to drop us a line for guidance & support!

How should my pair fit?

For an ideal fit, your heels should come just shy of or right to the back edge of the insoles. The natural leather will stretch and form to your feet with wear.

Your toes should touch the end of the pair with some pressure; however, they should not be curling.

It typically takes 3-5 good wears for your Babas to begin notably stretching throughout.

That said, the Baba style is initially a touch more relaxed than the Sabah (full shoe).

Why do El Paso made Shearling Babas differ in numerical size from Turkish made Shearling Babas?

The differing methods of craft in each workshop lead to alternate numerical sizing on the final last. The history of shoe making in each setting brings forth these unique elements of production.

We recommend selecting the numerical size that directly corresponds to your typical EUR/US shoe size in the drop down menu on each specific product page.

Can I return my pair for refund, credit, or an exchange?

Of course!

We happily accept all returns on NEW & UNWORN Sabahs & Babas. Please, visit our Returns page for more information & to initiate a request.

We also offer FREE returns for new & unworn orders placed in the US within 30 days of receipt.

How do I care for my Babas?

To best care for your Babas, we suggest you clean them as they get dirty and condition them periodically, or as they appear dry, with a high quality leather conditioner.

We produce our own Sabah leather conditioner & cleaner, which you can find on the Sabah Market page. Cleaning and conditioning your pair will help maintain the texture and beauty of the leather.


You should avoid applying topical products to suede or nubuck -- doing so will disrupt the fibers and matte the suede. Use a brush to care for your suede or nubuck Sabahs. We highly recommend consulting a local cobbler if your suede or nubuck Babas require cleaning/conditioning.

For any unique cleaning & care questions, we advise connecting with your cobbler or sending us an email at portal@sabah.am.

Domestic shipping information.

For all orders placed that are currently in-stock, we are able to send your package to post within 1-2 business days.

Once your shipment is en route, our standard shipping option will typically have your order to you within an estimated 3-4 days.

We do, however, offer various shipping options at checkout should you prefer to have your package sooner. We offer UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS Next Day Air for expedited service.

As a note, UPS 2nd Day Air does not expedite shipping over the weekend.

Where is my order shipping from?

Sabahs & Babas are all handmade in either Gaziantep, Turkey or El Paso, TX and shipped to our main fulfillment center in Connecticut. Your order is, then, carefully packed up by our team & passed off to post.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do! As a note -- depending on the country you are ordering from, you may want to visit our UK site - uk.sabah.am.

International shipments may be subject to customs fees and import duties of the country to which your order is shipped to. The courier will charge you any taxes or customs directly. For any detailed questions on this, we recommend you consult your local Customs office, which will happily assist you with further information.

Sabah is not responsible for any duties or taxes imposed by the recipient’s country. If any such duties or taxes are imposed, you, the customer, will be responsible for paying them.

Does the Shearling lining effect the fit?

Our Shearling Babas do, indeed, fit a touch differently than our standard Babas due to the added shearling lining.

We recommend selecting the numerical size that directly corresponds to your typical EUR/US shoe size in the drop down menu on each specific product page.
