Papillio is proud to present a true classic in the form of the Gizeh sandal. It is the favorite model of all those who like to go without socks and who wish to train the muscles in their feet and legs when walking. For the shaft design, Papillio has opted for exclusive embossed nubuck 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. Comfort is paramount at Papillio. Thanks to an individually adjustable, matching metal buckle, the strap can be adjusted to the wearer’s feet. The anatomically shaped thong provides gentle grip. The anatomically formed cork-latex footbed comes with a smooth suede lining. The flexible EVA outsole with bone profile enables a rolling motion that is good for feet and body.

Upper material: Embossed nubuck leather
Embossed leather is easily recognisable by its characteristic surface. Nubuck leather 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.
