Introducing the limited edition, Texas-born Sabah x El Cosmico Baba -- a collaboration years in the making between Sabah & Liz Lambert. This style is inspired by the El Cosmico signature robe, featuring hand-painted stripes painted by El Paso local artist, Xochitl, in our El Paso workshop.
The El Cosmico Baba's soles & insoles are made with full grain 100% vegetable tanned and undyed Italian bull leather, traditionally used for western equestrian boot & saddle making -- thick yet very flexible, particularly good at absorbing the humidity, whisking it away from your feet. Just as the upper and lining leather, the sole and insole leather will form to your feet and gain a rich caramel patina over time. The painted dye stripes are soaked into the leather, so these Babas will look really beautiful as the leather creases and ages, inviting the bright stripes to take on a bit of patina with wear as well.
Perfect for a cool night of live music in the dessert, or dressed up for dinner in the city -- we hope you enjoy this special collaboration.
