Classic Oakley Sunglasses

Oakley sunglasses are a quality eyewear product. They are durable and appealing sunglasses.

Oakley has been a name associated with consistent quality in eyewear for many years now. Oakley sunglasses offer both style and function while standing up to scratches and occasional bumps. (I actually saw a pair of Oakley sunglasses get dropped and run over by a car about ten years ago - and they came out of it with only a small scratch on one lens. I have been an Oakley fan ever since.)
The Polarized Oakley Nanowire 3.0 is available through the Oakley website for around $300. The Nanowire is available in Olive Chrome, Brown Chrome, or Polished Black. The lens is one long, smooth surface rather than split for each eye. This allows for an uninterrupted field of vision. The frame is designed to ultra-lightweight and flexible.
Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ is an excellent sports sunglasses style. They can be purchased through Zappos.com for about $142. Flak Jacket has a rain and sweat repellent coating on the smudge and dirt resistant lens. Lenses are also UV resistant, lightweight, rimless, and offer impact protection. Easy change lenses are available for different light conditions. The Predator is available in different colors and also comes with a case for your easy storage convenience.
The military-inspired Fuente Antix is available through the Oakley website for approximately $265. The company originally had to set a limit of one pair per customer. Frames are available in black, tortoise, or red. (Red is cheaper - available for about $90) the polarized lenses balance light transmission and tame even the sharpest sun glares.
Limited Edition 4-Legged Frogskins are cute retro-style sunglasses that are available through the Oakley website for about $120. The frame colors are matte denim and turquoise. The lens shape is similar to the cat-eyed sunglasses that were popular in the fifties- though updated with a chunkier size. Frogskins come with an extra pair of stems. If you want a pair of these - you had better hurry - they are only available for a limited time - at this point - you may actually have to seek out vintage Frogskins on sites like eBay or Amazon.
Polarized Fives came out in 2009. They were available through the Oakley website for about $135. These dark sunglasses are perfect for bright days or for people with light-sensitive eyes. Fives are a slimmer, classic style of Oakley sunglasses. The lenses are created with Oakley wrap and rake curvature. Wrap and rake offers the wearer a wider field of vision, more protection from the wind, and better UV protection.
