Papillio offers a feminine, stylish and highly functional twist on the popular Ashley thong sandal. The sandal boasts a 2 cm-high wedge heel that is directly attached to the sole, as well as a heel/instep strap that can be individually adjusted using a metal buckle. The anatomically formed EVA thong is exceptionally soft and therefore perfect for the needs of the wearer’s feet. For the unique and incredibly stylish shaft design, Papillio has opted for exclusive embossed and polished leather with python print. The leather has also been given a matching metallic coating to create an iridescent effect. Papillio selects only the highest-quality materials.

Upper material: Nubuck leather
Nubuck leather is the result of a gentle buffing of the top-grain layer of the hide. It is soft to the touch and develops a beautiful patina over time.
Insole: Natural leather
Natural 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.
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.
