Papillio’s Soley is a sleek and simple look wedge sandal, ideal for those that like a little comfort along with heel height and high fashion. Both straps are adjustable and the upper is made from high-quality natural leather. The classic contoured cork footbed has all the support you know and love, a deep, stabilising heel cup and arch support.

For your comfort and support, we offer our original footbed in two widths: 'Regular' for normal to wide feet and 'Narrow' for slimmer feet.
The width of your Birkenstocks is indicated by the footprint shape next to the size.
Choosing the correct fit will keep your feet happy, prevent pressure or rubbing in the wrong places and extend the lifespan of your shoes.
These measurements are footbed dimensions.
We recommend choosing a footbed size by adding 10mm to the length of your foot, and selecting narrow or regular based on your foot width.
|24 Narrow (Kids)||150mm||63mm|
|25 Narrow (Kids)||160mm||65mm|
|26 Narrow (Kids)||165mm||67mm|
|27 Narrow (Kids)||170mm||69mm|
|28 Narrow (Kids)||180mm||71mm|

The arch supports that run alongside the sides of the footbed surround the tarsal bones inside and out. This gives the foot the stability it needs when it takes a step.
The very deep molding in the heel area supports the foot tissue and holds the heel bone firmly in its natural position. This provides the foot with nearly as much support when it is in a sandal as when it is in a closed shoe.
One of our most important raw materials is cork – A natural and sustainable product that boasts high elasticity, outstanding cushioning, and excellent heat and sound insulation. The cork layer is reproduced and can therefore be harvested again and again without harming the tree.
The cork is obtained from the bark layer of the cork oak. At least five centimeters of thick bark is stripped from the cork oak – a process that can only be repeated every seven to nine years. A single tree can provide 100 to 200 kilograms of cork during its lifetime.
Natural latex serves as a primary binding agent in the production of the footbed. Like cork, natural latex is also a renewable resource. Natural latex is obtained from the resin of rubber trees.
This delicate natural material has a much better energy balance than synthetic latex, which is obtained from crude oil, and it's also free from pollutants such as solvents or CFCs. In addition, natural latex has beneficial natural properties, such as a high elasticity-point and superior breathability.
Birkenstocks are carefully manufactured to allow for easy repairs over the life of the shoes.
Most components are replaceable or repairable.
Our workshop exclusively uses genuine Birkenstock repair materials.
Regular care and maintenance of your Birkenstocks helps keep your favourites on your feet for longer.
Smaller, more regular repairs, such as re-soling and cork patching are recommended over the life of your shoes to extend their wear.
The more shoes we are able to repair, the more we keep from being discarded and ending up as landfill.
We salvage parts and materials from anything that we can no longer repair, minimising waste at every part of our process.
Our workshop team are a talented bunch!
Even if you think your shoes may be beyond repair, or your new puppy has given them a good chew, please reach out to us.
