To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Hermes Oran sandals is to look at the text written on the insole and on the sole of the sandals. The replica Hermes Orans never have their inscriptions on the insoles and on the soles at the right font weight, while the authentic pieces are always flawless when it comes to these inscriptions.
The Hermes Oran are a really nice pair of sandals, and as nice as they are, lots of replicas are manufactured trying to copy the real deal, and at the end of the day, nothing really compares to the genuine sandals.
This fake vs real Hermes Oran sandal guide will show you everything you need to know in order to differentiate between legitimate sandals and fake ones.
All of the information in this guide on how to spot fake Hermes Oran sandals will be sorted through a few steps that are really easy to follow.
In order to make the authenticity process easier, we are going to link reference real vs fake Hermes Oran comparison images so that you’d visualise what the real pairs are supposed to look like, as well as the flaws on the bets fakes out there.
How you can tell if a Hermès sandal is real
You can tell if a Hermès sandal is real if it has thick and defined engravings on the insole. Fake sandals always have thinner text that doesn’t look as detailed as the original.
Let’s check this out!
The fake shoes have their Hermes logo and the inscriptions at the wrong thickness.
On the fake sandals, Hermes’ logo looks too little detailed, as the horse is not perfectly visible when it should be the opposite way.
The shoes have their “HERMES” text looking too thin and too tall.
The word “PARIS” looks too thin as well on the fake shoes, and the real pair’s “PARIS” text is thicker.
Each inscription is flawed on the fake sandals.
The “HERMES” text logo looks too thick on the fake Oran shoes.
The fake pair has its “37” number too thick and too bolded.
The”semelle cuir” and the “MADE IN ITALY” text look too thick on the fake shoes, while the authentic pair’s same inscription looks thinner.
A quick mention:
The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
The next few steps are still reliable methods…
… but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
The fake pair’s “H” has its stitches improperly detailed when compared to the authentic ones.
The replica Hermes Oran’s stitching is too thin and the threads are too short when compared to the authentic pair’s stitches which are thicker and longer.
At the same time, the authentic pair’s stitching fits deeper into the leather, while the counterfeit Hermes Oran’s stitches are not stamped as deep as they have to be.
4. Brown sole
The shade of brown used to paint the fake pair’s sole is too light.
Most visible at the top: the fake pair’s shade brown is too light, while the authentic pair has a darker and more concentrated shade of brown.
5. Dust bag
The fake pair has its dust bag’s logo coloured in a very light brown (that is almost red), while the real dust bag has its logo black.
The fake pair’s letter “H” inside the circle is too thick and too big, while the authentic dust bag’s logo is thinner and smaller.
Shortlist: Authenticate Hermès Oran sandals in 30 seconds
Check the text written on the insole of your shoes and make sure that all of the characters are properly font-weighted
Examine the text engraved on the sole of the shoes. Usually, the fake pairs don’t have all of the characters at the right thickness
Authenticate the stitching on the “H” shape at the top of your Hermes Oran sandals, as most of the fake pairs tend to have their stitching too thin, too short and fit too little deep into the leather
Look at the brown colour of your sandals’ soles, if applicable. In most cases, the fake heels have a shade that’s too light for their sole’s brown
Remember to also check the dust bag. Mostly, the replica Hermes H Oran sandals have their dust bag’s logo brown instead of black, the fake dust bags also often have the letter “H” too thick
