Comparing the Steven Greece + Foreva vs Hermes Oran + Oasis Slides

This post started as a curiosity to compare two styles of shoes, and then turned into a full post because if I'm wondering this, you guys probably are too. 

First, I have to say I love my Hermes shoes. I find them secondhand on eBay or similar sites so I never pay full price for them.However,  I think they are worth the price. Not the full price tag, but they are definitely made up of strong materials that are meant to last.

My Hermes Oasis slides (the brown heels) are on my feet from May until September. I love them. I wear them out, to weddings, around the city -- they are part of my heavy rotation of summer shoes. They give you a heel without the hurt and they are really cute on your feet! They were my first pair of Hermes slides and what started my obsession.

Once those came along, I wanted the flats (more so for beach activities/scenarios) and found a pair in white that I loved. They are also great. They are more casual, but perfect again for summer. I wore them all the time. Whenever I went to Nantucket this year, I would bring two pairs of shoes: my white flats and my brown heels. They're all you need.

I totally understand that the price tag is absurd and not attainable for a lot of people. That's why I loved that Steven came out with these (pretty good) look-a-likes for a really nice price. So I wanted to do a true comparison of both styles for anyone also interested in how they look side-by-side. I'm sorry that this is coming at the end of summer when people aren't buying sandals!

Overall: The Steven styles have wider straps resulting in a larger "H" and are more minimal in terms of the bed of the shoe. The heels were the major difference IMO. I couldn't believe how much taller the Foreva heels were! 

Sizing: Steven is TTS (both styles wearing an 8) Hermes runs a size small. I'm normally an 8 and wearing a 39 in both styles.

Also, honorable mention of the Steven Eryk wedges. These are the cutest style!!
