Oakley is a name well associated with quality eyewear, cool sports and sportspeople and some very radical designs over the years.  You might not realise they’ve been at it for 30 years! To celebrate, they’re releasing the Oakley Heritage Collection.

Cast your mind’s eye back to the 80’s – the decade that inspired and started the Oakley brand, and you might just find these new looks seeming very very familiar.

First up, the Oakley Eyeshades – these come from a time when very few sportspeople wore eyewear to actually enhance their performance, so when you revolutionise the frame with a secure fit and clarity for all round viewing you end up with this now classic look.  These Eyeshades will come in three colour options.

If you want to check them out – you can see the Oakley Heritage Collection  in all Oakley O Stores and top glasses retail outlets and online at Oakley.com.au
