More Splatoon.

They're the Splatoon colours pretty much

Pretty cool for a fan I'd say.
By the way, they're called Frogskins as Jim Jaynard, the founder of Oakley, and the CEO until they were bought out by Luxottica I believe, felt like he was selling out by having them made - as they weren't performance focused at all - so not what Oakley were about or known for.

But they were very popular.

Wayfarers, with traditional rather than straight arms, and no hyrdrophilic rubber, is very un Oakley.

I prefer Holbrooks myself, which are similar. It is nice to have some more basic wayfarers.

From the man himself:
oakleyforum.com/thr…e-8

Everything Oakley, up to that point, was designed in house and made in the USA. We had released the Eyeshade, were designing the Blades... both were shields for performance applications. We had built up some brand momentum and wanted to quickly get a "more normal" model out the door.

I flew to Japan and visited a manufacturer there and very quickly crafted the Frogskin. I knew it would sell. I just didn't think it was the kind of effort that would make us proud. It felt a bit like I sold out and when I was flying home, I felt a bit embarrassed. I asked myself if I wasn't just doing this "for the frog skins" (the bucks, greenbacks, dead presidents). I decided three things right then.

#1. Sell them and call them Frogskins to always remind me to only do brave an interesting things going forward.
#2. Get started on an intensive program to develop the very best optics in the industry and add more inventions and art to the next gen products.
#3. Build a factory and make our sunglasses in house.

I think the above list was checked off pretty well over the years.

Frogskins are great. They helped fund our future. Jupiter was my frog. I took the pic of Jupiter that is still floating around. But it was certainly not my best personal effort.

The next model we designed and released (after Blades and Razor Blades) was the M Frame. That glass has more innovation and inventions than any glass in the history of eyewear (at least I'd be happy to argue the point).

BTW... our next twin lens O-Matter sunglass was the Eye Jacket. It, too, was a commercial success and a model I am still very proud of. It was sculptural, had a full ellipse lens shape (matched our new O-icon logo), had XYZ Optics, ear socks and a ton of other features. It was our 1st in house project that used 3D cad all the way through the process. (Hard to believe everyone built hand models of stuff before CAD).

Look cool in the photos but very cheap feeling when you get them. I ended up returning mine.

These are pretty awful looking, imo and a bit outdated.

More of a Persol man Myself.

Thanks for your washing detergent recommendation, but we're talking about sunglasses here.

I have used reglaze glasses direct ( formerly ciliaryblue) 6 times now, they are brilliant, I'm just about to send off a pair to get sun sunny lenses put in, but I've had 2 pairs of Oakley's prescriptions done and there service is fantastic ( no I don't work for them)
Nothing to do with this deal (which i voted hot on due to price as those sunglasses are horrid!), but Spy optics are the comfiest sunglasses brand iv tried, cost about the same as oakleys but aren't as well known in the UK as in US aside for ski/snowboard goggles.

Thanks I’ll look into this
I've got some older oakley's which are sturdy and well made, but the frames seem to get cheaper and cheaper looking. Saying that's I've a pair of bright green ones which look like they were bought of a beech vendor in Spain - look so fake no one would ever consider stealing them (which was reason I got them)

Their lenses are normally very good.
