The Story Behind It All
Jim Jannard, the founder of Oakley started his brand with $300 and a mind full of ideas. He desired more from the eyewear at the time. His first invention of revolutionary eyewear (Eyeshades®) was a huge success. He continued to develop and redefine sport eyewear with each design bettering the last. His designs have been awarded with more than 600 patents worldwide which ensures the protection of his closely-guarded technologies.
“Inventions wrapped in art. Oakley was founded upon that idea, and it still defines us today.” – Jim Jannard
The Oakley philosophy is based on their 5 rules of design. To redefine, reject conventional ideas, create a synergy with form and function, transcend innovations into solutions, and deliver the unexpected. Every design created by the company must meet these 5 rules; failing to do so will result in the design being scrapped and either modified or reinvented from scratch.
The Eyewear Collections
Nothing like you’ve seen or worn before. The innovative eyewear takes to your vision another level. High-Definition Optics (HDO®) technology provides you with the best visual acuity and clarity. You can also opt for True Digital™ with Dual Peripheral Technology™ which offers sharper peripheral vision without distorting the lenses or altering your prescription range.
This collection has been designed for men and women that are professional athletes or engage in sports events on a daily basis. This collection gives you the Oakley experience as well as all the advanced technology. The frames in this collection is more curved than traditional frames giving you more peripheral vision which optimizes your reflex mechanisms. This helps you to perform better.
This collection is for men and women who participate in sports activities but not as rigorously as athletes. If you are actively exercising and you need a good level of sports optimisation from your eyewear, the active range will provide you with what you need in addition to the Oakley experience.
The Lifestyle collection is for men and women who do not require any sport-enhancing technology although you will still receive the full experience (HDO® techonology, 3-point grip frames, and beautiful styling and function).
