Cool Cat | La Babouche shoe-slides made in leopard printed leather cowhide. Don't compromise comfort for style!
Wear La Babouche in two ways: fold the back of the heels to create the ease and accessibility of a slide-on or put the heels upright and wear as stylish loafers.
Outer composition | 100% cowhide leather*, lining and sole | 100% leather.
Handmade by Moez and Mansour, in a small atelier in the Medina of Tunis, Tunisia.
*In keeping with our mission of sustainability, we only use leather excess inventory or leather 'scraps', sourced from local leather goods ateliers and factories. All the leather used in our products is always a byproduct of the food industry.
SIZING AND FIT
Fit true to size in general. French sizing. Half-sizes or wide feet choose the 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.
Given the handmade nature 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.
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. Today, our team has modernized "the Rihya" into a sleek, contemporary, elegant and comfortable - every day and everywhere - shoe.
