Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Oakley performance eyewear, the Heritage™ Collection salutes the evolution of a revolution by bringing back vintage rarities for a limited time. It’s a chance to own a piece of history with a classic look that shows your respect for sport heritage and smooth retro style. Oakley Eyeshades™, Razor Blades™ and Frogskins® will be offered with commemorative highlights and collectible extras, and we’re adding riffs to a few contemporary designs so today’s athletes can carry the colors of history and pride.
Oakley invented the world’s first true performance eyewear in 1984, and over the decades, more medals and championships have been won when wearing Oakley eyewear than with any other single sport product on Earth. We opened the design vault for the 30 year anniversary and brought back three favorites with colors from the era that started it all.
A generic accessory became vital equipment when Oakley created the original Eyeshades sunglass. Featuring “2014” inside the frame, the Heritage Collection edition of this world-first performance eyewear is engineered with improved nose pad construction. It comes with two sets of earstems (curved and straight), as well as a collectors pin & sticker and a custom Microclear™ bag for lens cleaning and frame storage.
High Definition Optics® (HDO®) is a collection of patented technologies that allow Oakley eyewear to meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute for optical clarity, visual fidelity, and impact resistance.
