Rough Out Brown Baba

$230

The Rough Out Brown Baba is produced at the Sabah Workshop in El Paso, Texas. This tobacco-colored, high-napped suede Baba, uses American rough out bison hide -- often found in high quality boots for its remarkable durability and strength. No two bison hides are alike, demonstrated by the unique variations found in every pair. Our American Bison full grain hides are tanned in the USA, maintaining a strong connection to the craft of western boot-making. The leather goes through an extensive tanning process, giving it structure and fullness -- then is drum dyed to achieve the rich tobacco hue, and ensure the color is fully saturated through the hide. The result is a premium leather that is soft, yet durable. Once at the El Paso workshop, these Babas are stitched with the suede side up, showing off the “rough” texture of the leather. Enjoy!

Care

GENTLY WHISK OFF DRIED DIRT WITH A SUEDE BRUSH (A WIRE OR RUBBER BRUSH, OR A FIRM TOOTHBRUSH WILL WORK). IF STAINED, DAB SPOTS WITH A DRY CLOTH. IF STAIN REMAINS, DAB WITH A DAMP CLOTH, ALLOW TO DRY, AND GENTLY COMB WITH A SUEDE BRUSH, LIFTING THE NAP AS YOU BRUSH. SHOULD THE BABA GET WET, ALLOW THEM TO AIR DRY, NEVER EXPOSING THEM TO HEAT — ONCE FULLY DRIED, USE THE SUEDE BRUSH TO GENTLY LIFT THE NAP OF THE SUEDE.

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 Babas differ in numerical fit from Turkish made 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.

How do I care for my El Paso made Babas?

Specific care instructions will vary based on the material used to craft your unique pair.

Velvet, hair-on leather, smooth leather, fabrics, & suedes all require slightly different attention & maintenance.

To learn more about your pair specifically, email us at portal@sabah.am or consult your local cobbler!
