The Design of Oakley Sunglasses

Last updated 5 years ago

There are many imitators, but only one true original. No other sunglasses can match the quality and performance of Oakley. Jim Jannard started Oakley in 1975 with just $300 and the idea that he could make products that outperformed anything else on the market. Since those humble beginnings, Oakley has set the standard for innovation in optical technology and eyewear. Oakley’s unique approach to sunglasses starts with their design philosophy. Keep reading to learn more about the design of Oakley sunglasses.

Redefining the Possible

Oakley subscribes to the notion that nothing is impossible, and their design reflects that. The design team never stops working to develop new and innovative technologies so that your sunglasses will exceed your expectations. CAD/CAM engineering lets designers experiment before sunglasses are put into production to ensure that each model meets Oakley’s exacting standards.

Endless Creativity

What sets Oakley apart from their competitors is their non-stop quest for excellence. Other sunglasses brands may be content to rely on old standby designs, but Oakley is constantly seeking ways to invent and reinvent. With iconic models such as Blades and Eye Jacket, Oakley raised the bar for performance eyewear. Oakley has also made groundbreaking technology such as High Definition Optics available to consumers and not just elite athletes.

Professional Performance

Even if you are not a professional athlete, you can experience the Oakley difference. The technological breakthroughs in sunglass design made by the Oakley team are available to anyone who is ready to elevate their own performance. Try a brand new pair of Oakleys to take your sunglass experience to the next level.

Form and Function

In the world of Oakley design, there is no difference between form and function. Designers work tirelessly until form and function meet, creating an entirely innovative optics solution. This means that your sunglasses will perform outstandingly well, and you’ll look good at the same time.
