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) plus a guitar pick that is meant to act as a tool to change out stems, as well as a collectors pin & sticker and a custom Microclear™ bag for lens cleaning and frame storage.
Oakley Razor Blades continued the revolution that Eyeshades began. The Heritage Collection has Razor Blades in multiple lens/frame color combinations, and each collectible comes with both straight and “trigger” shaped earstems along with a pin, sticker, guitar pick and custom Microclear bag.
Topping off the trio is a lifestyle sunglass called Frogskins, our very first dual-lens design. With the Heritage Collection edition, you’ll get a collectors pin and sticker, plus a custom Microclear bag. This retro eyewear brings a slice of originality to your street look. The shape is carved right out of sunglass history, and the frame is crafted with contrast earstems that carry one of our earliest logos.
To let athletes pay tribute to sport heritage while enjoying state-of-the-art technology, the collection includes renditions of RadarLock™, Radar®, Flak Jacket® XLJ, and Racing Jacket®. Our artists accented the top edge of each frame with a printed stripe graphic that carries the colors of our original eyewear creations from 30 years ago. A “30” graphic is laser etched at the corner of the lens in each edition, and as with all designs in the Heritage Collection, the custom Microclear bag is decked with art that celebrates the anniversary.
Designed to balance light transmission and reduce glare, this premium lens coating is made with superheated metal oxides. It is available in a spectrum of colors for optimizing vision in virtually any light condition.
