These stylish Papillio mules with a cork footbed are clean, minimalist and exceptionally glamorous. The seamless upper on the Charlize model features an open selvedge finish and is made from a single piece of leather. It wraps around the footbed in the heel section, where it is stitched. The high-quality, soft smooth leather has been given a fashionable metallic coating. Papillio selects only the highest-quality materials. The look is bright and breezy, with the cut-out sections on the sides not only looking cool but also letting the feet get plenty of fresh air. The anatomically formed cork-latex footbed with soft suede lining makes the Charlize sandal a summer companion for anyone who sets great store by a stylish and comfortable appearance. This is also down to the ultra lightweight and flexible EVA outsole, which matches the shade of the upper on each of the four models available in metallic colors. The slight sole profile also enables a rolling motion that is perfect for feet and body.

Upper: Oiled leather
Oiled leather can be recognized by its untreated surface. BIRKENSTOCK purposely does not treat surface grains and other characteristic features. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 millimeters as upper material.
The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
Footbed material: Cork
Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushioning.
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a high-quality, very light, elastic material with extremely good cushioning. As a result, it smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned.
