Gretchen Bleiler has been warming up to the cold all her life. She’s been intimately familiar with the cold’s hardships since her first boarding session at age 11. She knows how cold can cramp your style, your movement and body all at once. A three-time X Games Gold Medalist and Olympic Silver Medalist, Gretchen has had to learn how to embrace the cold without losing one second of speed, one fall from grace, or one wink of style.
With that style, an evolution of grace weaves its way through the design of the new 2009 Gretchen Bleiler Signature Series. This special edition of RESTLESS™ sunglasses showcase the flair for fashion that the Gretchen Bleiler collection exudes. Accented by sleek stems that we sheathed in genuine leather this polished gold framed piece is one that leaves you restless and yearning for more.

A patented innovation that ensures the frame makes contact only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head. It holds lenses in precise optical alignment with a secure fit that eliminates the pressure points common with frames that hook the ears.
Five metal compounds are superheated and fused into this durable yet lightweight alloy that serves as the chassis of Oakley Wire® frames and as components in other styles.
