When the term “sunglasses” comes up in any conversation, it is generally very quickly followed by the brand name of Oakley. They have been one of the leading manufacturers of sunglasses for years and they are by far the most popular brand that is sought after on the market today. They have a great reputation for the quality of their products as well as their fashion and design. They can be divided into three main categories or types of sunglasses: sportswear, active wear and lifestyle.
Oakley’s line of sport sunglasses are specially designed to stay in place during sports and other activities where there may be a lot of bodily movements involved. But they also have a specially designed lens that helps to protect the eye from injury while playing. This ensures the athlete’s safety while participation in their sport. Sportsmen everywhere can be seen wearing their Oakley sunglasses at sporting events around the world. There are many different categories of sports glasses. Zero S, Split Jacket and Radar Path are just a few. A wearer must only choose the proper style for the sport they are going to be participating in. They can enjoy a sporty, classy look with their Oakley eyewear.
The Cross Hair, Scalpel and the Splinter are a few of the choices in Oakley’s active sunglasses category. These styles are meant to enhance the wearer’s personality and make a fashion statement about taste. Basically these lines are designed to center on fashion rather than on functionality. These special styles are for those who really do not care what everyone else thinks, they make their own fashion statement.
Lifestyle sunglasses are designed specifically for those who have to wear prescription eyewear. Even though the purpose is to help the wearer see better, they still have an image to uphold and make their own fashion statements. They provide the necessary aid in seeing but do so with Oakley flair!
A few key features that are uniquely Oakley are the exceptional UV protection offered by their lenses as well as their interchangeable lenses. Both lenses and frames come in a wide variety of styles to choose from. They are made to be resistant to damage and are high quality products. The company prides itself in the fact that their high tech designs and features are keeping up with the trends. Actually, Oakley pretty much sets the trend in fashionable eyewear.
The company was founded in 1975. They do have a few of their own stores that go by the names O Stores or Oakley Vault. These store locations are spread out to 145 locations around the world. Local retailers such as Dillard’s and Sunglass Hut carry this line of eyewear as well.
