As its name translates in French, Papillio really is the butterfly of the BIRKENSTOCK family. Representing imaginative and creative styles, Papillio, with a sturdy contoured cork footbed sets a strong foundation for a distinctly fashionable collection.

What makes Papillio distinctive?

There is a real shimmer and shine element to this collection which sets it apart from traditional sandals.  If you are kooky, classy, or both, Papillio have you covered by making use of new colours, prints, patterns and latest trends. Manufactured in Portugal, the Papillio aesthetic is found in several styles and models across the BIRKENSTOCK collection.

Seasonal selections

Each fashion collection brings a selection of styles to suit the season from wintery closed-toe mules and clogs in muted tones to strappy bright summer patterns.

The selection is most abundant among summer sandals showcasing criss-cross uppers, single-strap slides and wedges with ankle straps, all which exceed the expectations of traditional BIRKENSTOCK designs.

Height variants

For those looking for a little extra height, Papillio is the go to, offering varying styles in wedges and platforms.  The platform styles boldly colour block the elevated outsole to accentuate the effect and a wedged heel adds varying heights to the everyday sandal for a dressy, sophisticated look.
