The Madrid sandal, a classic model that was first launched as a "gymnastics sandal," has long been the ultimate must-have item for fashionistas. Fashion, training, and functionality come together in perfect harmony on this elegant Papillio mule. Thanks to the positioning of the strap in relation to the naturally supportive footbed, the muscles in the feet and calves are gently trained with each step.

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.
