Back by popular demand, courtesy of Hermés, roller skates are rolling onto the scene again. And this time, they are chicer than ever. The French luxury house is venturing into a whole new territory—where Herm s chicissime meets ‘70s youth culture.

A new spin on a classic, these roller skates—crafted in white calfskin leather atop a maplewood platform—are as practical as they are elegant. The skates are lined with a “Savana Dance’’ print, the first collaboration between Hermés and the Ardmore, a collective of Zulu, Zimbabwean, and Sotho artisan potters in South Africa.

Picture yourself gliding across a strip by the sea in the South of France, breeze through your hair, where Herm s’ vision and distinguished craftsmanship meets the spirit of the roller-disco days.

In tune with the brand’s motto: “Exceptional Pieces, Savoir-Faire of Excellence, an Audacious and Elegant Art of Living,” it comes as no surprise that Hermés would reinvent such a staple. In a truly innovative approach, the roller skates have been designed with a one-of-a-kind fixation system. This means that the mountable sole allows for the use of sneakers without the skates. So whether you want to skate, walk or run through the town, the choice is yours.
