Papillio Women's Sandals
Papillio shoes are a subset of Birkenstock women’s shoes. Papillio shoes are designed to play with components of standard Birkenstock designs like heel height, fabrics, patterns, and textures.What styles of Papillio women’s footwear are available?
Papillio women’s footwear represents almost every style of Birkenstock sandal. Some feature two thick straps while others include ankle straps. Most feature cork soles, and some are reinforced with black and white stripes of foam along the bottom for increased height. Wedge heels, flats, and platform styles are all available in the Papillio line. Fabrics vary from the traditional leather collection to include hues like blue, pink, yellow, and others. Floral patterns, heather, paisley, leopard print, and patent leather are all available as finishes in this line. Many styles feature metallic buckles for strap closure.What are some trademark qualities of this line?
Seasonal collections change frequently as opposed to the rest of the Birkenstock staple collection. Mules and sandals are both part of the line. Differing heel heights, furs, frills, printed fabrics, stretch panels, and differently-sized buckles are all additional qualities in this line that differ from original Birkenstock sandals. Footbeds are still anatomically formed to suit the bottoms of feet in sizes for women 4 through 11.5.What materials are utilized to make Papillio footwear?
Materials differ depending on the particular style of sandal, but most are made from a mix of suede, EVA foam, and Birko-Flor hybrid material. Metallic buckles, fur embellishments, and different sorts of cushioning may also be used in a variety of different Papillio women's designs.How do you care for Papillio women’s sandals?
- There are several ways to clean this line of women's footwear, the first of which involves dry brushing and leather cleaner. Use a toothbrush or other dry bristle brush to brush any dirt or debris off of the sandals. Then, apply leather cleaner in small amounts. Let the sandals air-dry thoroughly, without heat.
- For synthetic women's footwear not made from suede, like many of the Papillio designs, remove dirt with a dry brush. Use a damp cloth to get as many stains or marks off the sandals as possible. Water may be enough to eliminate these marks. Let the sandals air-dry completely before wearing them. Use a damp cloth to blot the footbed every few weeks to reduce staining. You might even mix equal parts of baking soda and water to clean the soles.
