Just when you thought you’d seen it all, Hermès pulls out all the stops with its latest iteration of the beloved Oran sandal. No, it’s not the tried and tested classic Box calfskin. Nor is it the textured Epsom which is too much on the safe side for some. Instead, it’s a full woolskin material that guarantees to provide ultimate comfort with every step.
Woolskin technically refers to sheepskin with the wool still on it. In other words, just imagine how soft and supple this furry pair will be. Perfect for the cool weather in Singapore of late, the Oran sandals are currently available in four colours online. There’s Blue, Cognac, Orange and Vert D’eau (essentially green), all in luxurious woolskin, from the ‘H’ cut-out upper to the sandal’s insole.
This cosy pair certainly makes for a head-turner (some might mistake it for a pair of bedroom slides). Though you cannot deny that comfort is key, especially in this chic slip-on format. It also offers a slight elevation, thanks to the heel. Extra useful to ensure the furry woolskin will never touch the ground whenever you’re out and about.
Priced at SGD1300, with sizes running from 36 to 40 (with half sizes as well). Who’s ready to slip into the most comfortable pair of Oran sandals yet?
