Oakley Sunglasses

Oakley began in 1975 and was founded by James Jannard and the company got its name from Jannard's English Setter dog. The company got its first major breakthrough in 1984 with the introduction of the sunglasses, Eyeshade, which eventually evolved into the M Frame sunglasses, popular especially as military ballistic eyewear. Oakley now produces popular styles of sunglasses to include but not limited to: Half Jacket, M Frame, Flak Jacket, Gas Can, Juliet,and many, many more styles.
Oakley sunglasses were introduced in 1984, with several sport-specific models slowly being adopted by the key athletes of the time. Greg LeMond wore Oakley sunglasses during his performance in the 1984 Tour de France.  Quite a different look from the shades Lance Armstrong wears today.

The appeal of Oakley as an innovative eyewear brand soon developed with the mainstream and caught on like wildfire. In 1985, the Oakley Frogskins were released as all-around performance sunglasses (seriously)  that had a one of a kind design and cutting-edge technology that Oakley was known for with their iridium-finish lenses and Serilium™ based frames. Oakley dominated the 80's eyewear revolution and are still at the forefront of the eyewear industry today. 

Although the re-released shape and colors are similar, there are some significant differences between the original Oakley Frogskins and limited edition models being sold today.  The first generation Oakley Frogskins used metal hinges on their earstems, had the Oakley logos screenprinted to the side of the glasses (rather than the raised Oakley emblem), and were made in Japan. Another generation of Oakley Frogskins was released in the 90’s, which used integrated molded hinges and had raised Oakley logos on their earstems. The newer models were made in the USA.  Yes!

The current re-released Oakley Frogskins use nylon based O-Matter as well as all the technical lens geometry found on modern Oakley Sunglasses Outlet. Furthermore, the hinges on the re-released models are beveled rather than cylindrical in order to improve strength and flex.  They actually are very lightweight and somewhat flimsy.  Many people mistake authentic Oakley Frogskins as fakes due to the changes in manufacturing.
