Slipping on a set of Oakley glasses is like wearing history. The Tour de France, World Championships, Olympic Gold Medals, and countless other victories have all been won behind Oakley lenses. And, Oakley's list of sponsored riders has spread the gamut from the indomitable Lance Armstrong, to multiple Tour winner Greg LeMond, to off-road legend Brian Lopes, and many more. Why do they all choose Oakley? Because of Oakley's superior fit, comfort, function and long, storied tradition of optical excellence.
The legend began in 1975 with only $300 and Jim Jannard's clever idea for a motorcycle grip made of a magic material that actually becomes tackier as you perspire. A resounding success, the profits from grip sales enabled Jannard to take on the world of sports-specific eyewear. By adhering to his creed that "everything in the world can and will be made better" and a relentless desire to innovate, Jannard turned his $300 start-up into a worldwide optics empire.
Oakley quickly started unveiling innovative models like the Eyeshades and M Frames, building a reputation as an industry leader, and soon top cyclists like Greg LeMond were approaching the company to wear their glasses. As designs evolved, Oakley turned into a global icon that now offers products to consumers in more than 100 countries. Jannard’s brand became the mark of excellence and the choice for those refusing to accept compromise.
Today Oakley offers a wide range of athletic and casual eyewear.
