In late 1983, Jim Jannard, founder and "Chief Mad Scientist", was blinded by the sun during his long drive from San Diego to Orange County. Annoyed by the sunlight seeping through the periphery of his glasses, he decided to create a solution to this problem. Today Oakley frames are worn by elite athletes all over the globe. Oakley invents each product with a design philosophy called sculptural physics: the discipline of wrapping science with art. To put it simply, they "seek out problems, create solutions, and wrap those solutions in art".
The design of Oakley CASING™ was inspired by ultra premium golf clubs, and you’ll notice it in its smooth, sculptural contours of metal and its high grip sheathing of UNOBTAINIUM®.
Oakley CROSSLINK™ is a new category of ophthalmic frames with a true crossover design that lets you go from work to play without missing a beat. Sleek and modern look.

Oakley TRANSISTOR. A sports car that fueled this work of optical art with smooth sculptures inspired by the car body, along with temples which are bridged by specially designed elements made of flexible titanium alloy.
