Hermès Oran Sandal Review

Brighton Butler hermes sandals review

Maybe one of my most requested product reviews is for the Hermès Oran Sandal. These classic sandals have actually been around since 1997, but they’ve gained a ton of popularity in the last several years. In fact, because they’re so popular, tons of brands have created dupes of these sandals — many of which look nearly identical.

I own a couple of similar styles to the Hermès Oran Sandal, and I still reach for the real thing any time I’m looking for a classic brown sandal. In my opinion, they are just a notch above any other lookalike in my closet (if you can’t tell by the price point).

So are these sandals worth the hefty price tag? I’m going to share my honest review of the Hermes sandal so you can get an idea for yourself!


Oran Sandal

These sandals have been my go-to option for years and years now. Believe it or not, they have actually been around for 25 years, and tons of brands have made dupes of the famous sandals. But in my opinion, there is nothing that compares to the real deal.

What Is Sizing Like For the Hermès Oran Sandals?

In my opinion, these run perfectly true to size. I usually go up half a size when buying sandals no matter what brand I’m getting because I don’t like my foot to hang off the sole at all. I also read some reviews when buying these sandals that said people with wider feet should definitely go up half a size.

Do the Hermès Oran Sandals Stretch Out?

The more I’ve worn these sandals, the more relaxed the leather has become. That’s caused a little bit of stretch to the overall sandal, but honestly not enough to impact the sizing. If anything, I’d say they’ve just become more comfortable!

Are They Actually Comfortable?

Yes! I can honestly say these are some of the most comfortable shoes I own. It does take a few wears to really get them worn in, but once you do, they’re so good. I’ve worn them all day long before on days where I knew I’d be on my feet a lot and my feet felt great at the end of the day.

What Is the Cost of the Hermès Oran Sandals?

The most popular style of this sandal, which comes in four different colors, is available for $660. If you want a mixed material syle, they can run more than $1,000.

Are the Hermès Oran Sandals Worth the Cost?

This is a tough question to answer because everyone’s budget is different. I knew I was going to splurge on these sandals, but after reading a ton of reviews and knowing how high quality these sandals are, it was worth it to me. Since these sandals have been around for close to 25 years, they’re classic and will never go out of style.

Plus, I try to think about how many times I will wear a more expensive item and I’m usually able to justify the cost per wear. If you’ve got a tighter budget, you can also find some very similar styles here and here.

Where Can I Buy the Hermès Oran Sandals?

If you’re looking for a brand new pair of these sandals, you’ll want to shop directly on the Hermès website. You can find some really great secondhand options on sites like Fashionphile. Occasionally, you can find a pair on sites like Poshmark as well, but it can be tough to know whether they’re authentic or not, so I definitely recommend sticking with a site that will certify authenticity.
