A premier sunglass and apparel company started in 1975. The brand started by selling motocross grips. In 1980, the brand started producing optics with the O-Frame goggle and then moved into sunglasses in 1984. Oakley is a leader in innovation in the sunglass industry and provides the truest optics of any brand on the market. Oakley works directly with a long list of sponsored athletes and the US military to produce glasses, boots, clothing, and goggles. Oakley consistently exceeds safety standards.
