As the summer season approaches, I am so excited to break out my sandals. One pair that has been on my wishlist for years is the Hermès Oran Sandals, which are a classic staple for any wardrobe. Even though these sandals are a classic, and will never go out of style, they also are $660. And, as much as I know I would get use out of them, I just can’t justify that for footwear that will only be worn a few months out of the year, and may come in contact with sand.
This year, Steve Madden introduced the Hayden sandal, which looks like the Oran’s twin sister, with a much better price tag of $80. The Hayden comes in several colors, including denim, a classic cognac, and the ultra trendy green. I picked up three pairs — the green, cognac, and the black.
I’ve only worn these a few times, but I already can see these pairing wonderfully with my work clothes, jeans, and more. I love these because they are comfortable, and even though they are a dupe, they are good quality. I don’t have to baby them, which is a huge deal during the summer time.
This summer if the Hermès Oran is on your wishlist, be sure to check out this look for less before dropping hundreds on the real thing.
