Birko-Flor

Birko-Flor® is a durable and easy to clean synthetic material, made to sit comfortably against the skin and used exclusively by Birkenstock.

The Papillio Footbed

The shape of the Papillio footbed is flatter and slightly squarer at the heel when compared to the Classic footbed, this offers great support and comfort.

Sustainable Cork

The Birkenstock cork footbed is legendary, not only for its comfort and support, though also for its sustainability. The cork is responsibly sourced from the outer layer of the cork oak tree. Sections of the thick bark are carefully removed without harming the tree, allowing it to regenerate and be re-harvested every 7-9 years. A single cork oak tree can produce 100 - 200 kg of cork in its lifetime!

Papillio Fit Details

This Papillio runs true to size. We recommend sticking with your usual size and refer to the Size Guide if you are unsure.

Papillio are generally available in Regular (R) and Narrow (N) widths, which are slightly wider than Birkenstock Regular (R) and Narrow (R). Unless you have a narrow foot or usually where N Birkenstock or Papiliio, we recommend going for a R.

This Papillio features a classic Birkenstock footbed and provides support such as longitudinal, metatarsal and transverse arch support, a deep heel cup and mould, and raised toe bar to provide basic orthotic support.

Pappillios and Birkis don't discriminate - they love feet small and large, wide and narrow, and everything in between. Like Birkenstocks, the adjustable straps allow you to customise the fit with ease, and most styles are available in both Regular (R) and Narrow (N) fittings.

However, they are a slightly wider than Birkenstocks, in that a Regular Papillio is wider than a Regular Birkenstock, and a Narrow Papillio is in between a Narrow and a Regular Birkenstock.

If you already own a pair or are trying them on in store - check out the little foot emoji on the footbed of the shoe (between the arch and heel) or on the shoe box. If the foot is coloured in, it is a Narrow (N). If it is just an outline of a foot, it is a Regular (R).
