Oakley Eyewear - The Best Eye Protection on Earth.

Open AllClose All

To help maintain the High Definition Optics® (HDO®) of Oakley lenses, your new eyewear comes with a specially-woven electrostatic Microclear™ bag for cleaning and storage. Using it will preserve the superior optical quality of Oakley's pure Plutonite® lenses. Hand wash and air-dry the Microclear™ bag regularly.

Oakley Iridium® lens coating is engineered to reduce glare and improve contrast. An array of available tints allows the wearer to balance light transmission in any light condition. The 12-micron jacket of Iridium® must be treated with special care to avoid scratching. It is only recommended to use an Oakley Micro Bag or Oakley Lens Cleaning Kit to clean Oakley lens, do not use any other solvents, chemicals or third party cleaning kits because they have not been tested on our lenses and can possibly damage them.

Frame accessory kits are available for some Oakley® eyewear styles. Do not attempt to remove or replace any other eyewear parts as this will void its warranty.

Goggle Care

Oakley® goggles are the most sophisticated equipment made for water, dirt, snow and everything in between. They meet European Community directives for optical performance and are in full compliance with the I.P.D. of category 1 for EEC directive 89/686.

Oakley's H2O Goggle, MX Goggle, O Frame®, L Frame™, and E Frame® are engineered with scratch resistant Lexan® lenses. This provides 100% protection against UV and harmful blue light, and surpasses ANSI Z87.1 standards for impact resistance. Each frame is constructed with durable, lightweight urethane that braces the lens in the perfect arc of circle, hugging the face to maximize peripheral and downward vision.

Oakley Wisdom™ and A Frame® goggles feature dual-lens configurations with proprietary geometry that mimics the anatomical curvature of the eye. These performance optical systems maximize peripheral vision and minimize distortion at all angles of vision. Pure Plutonite® lenses block 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light while surpassing ANSI Z87.1 standards for optical clarity and impact resistance. Surge port technology provides fog-cutting air circulation that keeps drafts away from eyes.

How to keep the best at their best:

All new Oakley Goggles come with a bag for cleaning and storage. Using it will help maintain the unrivaled optics of Oakley lenses. Wash the bag regularly. (Note: Oakley does not warranty any lens against scratches.)

Iridium® Lenses: Oakley Iridium® lens coating is engineered to block glare and heighten contrast. An array of available tints allows the wearer to tune transmission of any light condition. The 12-micron jacket of Iridium® must be treated with special care to avoid scratching. Use only mild soap and water; never use cleaning solutions.

IMPORTANT GOGGLE CARE: DO NOT RUB INNER LENS SURFACE WHEN WET.

If snow or water should collect inside the goggle, follow these steps:

  • Shake excess snow from the goggle interior. Clear all ventilation ports and lens vents.
  • Use the Microclear™ Bag that is included with your goggle to gently blot any remaining moisture.
  • Allow time for moisture to dissipate. Once the goggle is put back on, keep moving as much as possible. Airflow through the vents will help dry the goggle.

Your new goggle is designed for rugged durability, but precision instruments demand proper care.


Follow these guidelines to maximize performance and longevity:

  1. Avoid resting the goggle on your forehead or hat. This reduces the efficiency of ventilation ports and exposes the interior to moisture vapor from melting snow and perspiration. To minimize fogging, keep the goggle on your face.

For proper cleaning and storage, remember the following:

  • Do not use paper products, ski gloves or other abrasive materials to clean the goggle.
  • Allow the goggle to air dry before storing for extended periods.
  • Do not leave the goggle in areas of concentrated heat and sunlight, such as on a car dashboard or hanging from a rearview mirror.
  • Protect the lens and face foam by storing the goggle in its protective bag or case.

CARE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR OAKLEY FOOTWEAR

Simple maintenance can maximize the life span of your Oakley footwear. After use, brush away surface dirt with a soft brush. Loosen laces to fully open each shoe and place in a ventilated area to dry. In case of excessive moisture, remove footbeds (if applicable). Pat dry excess moisture with paper towels or other absorbent material. Leave inside the shoe for 30 minutes. Remove and air-dry as described above. Store footwear in a cool, dry place (never expose to heat). Exposure to excessive moisture may cause the shoe to lose its shape, fade in color, or become weakened. Genuine leather: If your Oakley Footwear has been exposed to environments and terrain not intended for its use, the warranty will be void.

CLEANING AND CONDITIONING

Please note that cleaning and conditioning your shoes may alter the appearance of the upper material.

Open AllClose All

Use a cloth dampened with mild soap and water to gently scrub away dirt. A mild lanolin-based product may also be used for cleaning and conditioning. Silicone finish can be applied as needed. Do not machine wash or machine dry.

Do not allow your shoes to come into contact with water (unless otherwise noted). Refer to your authorized Oakley dealer for a recommended Suede or Nubuc cleaner.

Using a soft damp cloth or soft bristle brush, gently scrub the upper materials with a mild soap. Do not machine wash or machine dry.
