H&M’s new slip-on sandals are a modern take on the £500 Hermès slides

Wear the classic Hermès Oran style for a fraction of the price

The Hermès Oran sandals are iconic - just ask Sarah from We Are Twinset who looks gorgeous in her trusty pair. Created in 1997, they've remained a mainstay on the fashion circuit ever since and are arguably as timeless as the Birkin handbag.

The simple design features one strap in the Hermès 'H' and they come in multiple colours, from classics like tan and black to the more daring pink or silver. The flat, slip-on style is so versatile it could be worn with almost anything in your wardrobe, but the damage? One pair will set you back £510/$1,200.

Luckily, if you can't justify that, the high street is full of lookalikes for a fraction of the price. The latest is this pair of H&M slides with so many amazing reviews for just £8.99/$12.99. With their square toe and double strap, the sleek slip-on sandals look like they're worth far more than their price tag.

Celeb favourite Ancient Greek Sandals also do a similar pair with a crossover strap for under £140/$180. Made from real leather, just like the Hermès Oran they will wear well and see you through season after season.
