Shaun White is a global snowboarding icon who has been a member of the Oakley family for over a decade.
At the age of seven Shaun entered and won his first amateur snowboard contest. At 13 he turned pro. At 15 he captured his first major pro win at the Oakley Arctic Challenge and less than a year later he earned his first Winter X Games medals: Gold in both the Halfpipe and Slopestyle events. Today, Shaun holds a record-breaking 14 Winter X Games gold medals, two Winter Olympic Halfpipe gold medals, and a slew of other honors and accolades from contests and organizations around the globe.
Shaun takes a creative approach to everything he does. Off the slopes, in collaboration with Oakley, he released Oakley’s first ever Signature Series Snow Goggle (four versions since) and will soon release his second Signature Series Collection. Shaun was also the first athlete to co-design an Oakley sunglass, which he named “Montefrio,” after the street he grew up on in San Diego, California. Since then, Shaun’s collection has grown to include the lifestyle glass, HOLBROOK®, a limited run collector’s edition of Oakley’s timeless FROGSKINS®, and a new Signature glass, the JUPITER® LX.
“True relationships stick around. With Oakley, I feel like I’m part of the family,” says Shaun. “Oakley products have always given me a competitive edge, and these guys have always been there for me, right down to little things like being at the top of the pipe ready to pass me a new lens when conditions change. It’s a good feeling knowing you’re riding in product you can trust.”
