Papillio: The BIRKENSTOCK Fashionista
The Papillio shoe can be seen as the most fashion-forward of the BIRKENSTOCK family. Taking inspiration from the French word for “butterfly,” Papillio styles represent the most festive and creative looks we have to offer. Incorporating the definitive contoured footbed that rests at the heart (and foot) of every BIRKENSTOCK shoe, Papillio designs make use of the latest trends, prints and patterns to add a decidedly fashion element to the entire collective.
What makes the Papillio collection unique
Details that add “shimmer and shine” are ultimately what set apart the Papillio shoe. But there really isn’t just one Papillio style. The Papillio aesthetic and name are found across categories and models in the whole of the BIRKENSTOCK collection.
- Seasonal selections- Closed-toe mules, fur-trimmed styles and summer sandals cover the range of Papillio shoes. In cooler seasons, there is a clog for everyone—classic buckle-detail clogs in cozy wool uppers, wedge-heel clogs that add a touch of femininity. The selection is even more abundant among summer sandals—criss-cross upper styles, single-strap slides and wedges with ankle straps, all which exceed the expectations of traditional BIRKENSTOCK designs.
- Height variants- Wedges and platforms are the way to play with heels in the Papillio collection. The platform styles boldly color block the elevated outsole to accentuate the effect, and a wedged heel of varying heights is added to summer sandals and clogs alike.
- Details- Furs and frills, pattern and prints, stretch and buckle details are what make Papillio shoes truly unique. The Della mixes and matches fabrics, textures and width in its strap choices. The Carmen has a single, wide upper strap adorned a slim buckle on top to complete a complex look for a fairly simple sandal. Attention is paid to every detail of the Papillio collection, and it shows.
