The legendary Hermes Oran sandals are a chic girl’s ultimate summer essential.
French shoe designer Pierre Hardy joined Hermes in 1990 at a time when no shoe collection existed. Years later, Hardy has many successful silhouettes credited to his name, including the Oran sandal.
Pierre Hardy designed the Oran in 1997 as a simple no-shoe sort of slip-on to offer the wearer the illusion of being barefoot. The designer was inspired by a drawing he saw. It was by an African tribe, consisting of graphic patterns seen painted on their houses. Thus, the classic appeared with a clean H on the uppers and a low-heeled sole as the base. And though decades have passed, the sandal has wonderfully endured, proving that it is as eternal as the maison’s bags.
A closer look at the popular Hermes Oran sandals
The letter H — a notable element representing the French House — remains the center of interest in a manner of sophistication and simplicity that’s so true to the brand. The open-toe construction allows your feet to breathe and move freely with you, without any pinching sensation or constraint to your toes. The immaculately-formed soles support each step so that you can walk in them for hours on end. Made in Italy, every Hermes Oran sandal embodies flawless artisanship and heralds the ideas of comfort, durability, and timelessness.
The slide sandal is also surprisingly versatile to style — with a white button-front shirt and blue jeans, a cotton lace summer dress, a flowy floral-printed maxi kaftan, tailored separates, or a T-shirt & denim skirt OOTD. You’ll find that the Oran is easily a match-with-everything kind.
Owing to its massive fan following, the Hermes Oran sandal is available in many versions, such as leathers, fabrics, and embroidery, for everyone to find their special one. Here are some of our favorites:
