Old School Shades


When you’ve just won your third Lockhart Phillips USA Formula Xtreme race in a row, you’ve earned yourself a little leeway. And Eric Bostrom needed it Saturday after he sported his very cool retro Oakley’s on the podium.

We’re talking old school — remember when you first discovered the Oakley brand in those old Cycle World ads? That’s what we’re talking about here.

Turns out Eric was discussing previous generation Oakley sunglasses with his Yamaha USA crew when Steve Rounds boasted about some vintage Oakley’s that he had in his collection. When Rounds brought a pair to Road America, Bostrom almost felt obligated to show them off after winning the race.
