In pop culture, it was a time like no other. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, The Terminator was in the box office and Run DMC was in certified gold.
It was also the time when Oakley created one-of-a-kind sunglasses called Frogskins. Oakley resurrected the original tooling from the '80s giving you a chance to own a piece of history.
The Surf Collection carries the vibe of surf paradise; with transparent O Matter™ frame material in smooth gradient hues, the styling pairs perfectly with the classic cool of Frogskins®, a fave among those who respect the retro look of a true vintage design. Each edition is matched with premium Plutonite® lenses and ready to tune your attitude toward tropical destinations of sun, sand and surf.

A headache from glare can ruin your day. Golfers have to deal with the performance-killing distraction of glare from water hazards, bunkers and flat areas. Fishing sessions can be futile when blinding rays bounce off water and hide the keepers. Driving in glare can be risky, and road cyclists know how glare can hide potholes and other dangers. Any skier or snowboarder can tell you how glare distracts, diminishes mental focus and drains energy with tension. Oakley developed HDPolarized lenses for elite athletes but the technology serves everyone. Because glare doesn’t care if you’re a sport champion, weekend warrior or just someone who enjoys the sun.
You Can Be Blinded By What You Can’t See
An invisible form of radiation, UV rays pelt your retinas at 186,000 miles per second. Eye damage linked to UV includes cataract, photokeratitis and pterygium. UV damage builds up over time. You generally don’t feel UV rays, so there is no natural warning that damage is being done. And although clouds reduce the level of UV reaching your eyes, clouds don’t block UV completely — which means your eyes can be exposed to UV rays even on overcast days.
Oakley Plutonite® lens material stops every wavelength of ultraviolet radiation from the sun‘s thermonuclear furnace, not just the lower energy form called “UVA.” Even Oakley's clear lenses filter out 100% of all UV.
