These Sandals Look Just Like the Hermes Oran

I’m sure you’ve seen the Hermes Oran sandals before. Or you may have not known what it was but still saw it on your social media feed, on celebrities and influencers.

A quick search of the hashtag on Instagram yields more than a hundred thousand results. Look for it on Google and you’ll find countless curations dedicated to it.

What are Hermes Oran sandals?

The Hermes Oran sandals were created by Pierre Hardy for the French fashion house in 1997. The idea behind it was to make a pair that looks like one is “walking barefoot.” Hardy said he was inspired by a drawing from the African Ndele tribe, which was later adapted into an H (which, of course, stands for Hermes). The sandals were released, and the rest, as they say, is history.

On why they are incredibly popular, though, Hardy told The Telegraph: “I don’t know! There is something that you can’t explain.”

I’m guessing it’s because the style is timeless. It’s really a simple pair of sandals! No frills, no gimmicks — you wear ’em and pair ’em with anything and go.

They come in 40 styles now, too. From studded to brights, there’s a pair of Hermes Oran sandals to match your style (and outfit).
