SIZING AND FIT

  • Fit true to size in general. French sizing. Half-sizes or wide feet choose next size up. Those with narrow feet may wish to take their normal size.
  • Slight fit may differ from style to style depending on the thickness of the leather.
  • Supple leather will literally mold to your feet. Because of their all leather nature, the shoe-slides will naturally stretch over time. 
  • We are here to assist you if you have any concerns.

 CARE

  • Given the handmade of the shoe-slides and the delicate nature of some of our materials, we do not recommend wearing them in muddy or wet areas.

  • Keep the toes of your shoe-slides stuffed with the paper they came with to ensure they keep their shape. Store them in their shoe bag when not in use or during travel.

BRAND BACKSTORY:

 

La Babouche is an artisanal Tunisian shoe brand founded by Chahrazed Chaieb, a former flight attendant. La Babouche is inspired by the 19th-century design of the La Rihya, a shoe with a thin indoor sole that was worn by women with traditional dresses at weddings and other celebrations.
