Summer with Oakley Sunglasses

June 4, 2013

Summer 2013 is set to be a big one for Oakley Sunglasses with a plethora of new releases making good on their promise of ‘science and art combined’. Oakley Sunglasses take the very pinnacle of eyewear technology and years of industry experience and roll it into a stylish summertime package! Undoubtedly, Oakley have the world’s best lenses and with over 600 patents protecting their lenses alone it is easy to see why. With Oakley’s HD and XYZ Optics, you have 100% clarity at all times with 0% refraction of light. This means that your vision will never be distorted which cuts out all of those annoying sunglass headaches you may get from other brands. They are considered to be the healthy option when it comes to eyewear with their patented Plutonite lenses blocking 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays to ensure that your eyes are safe and sound at all times. This is thanks to the inherent properties of Plutonite; a polycarbonate compound with a unique chemical structure – they are the only lenses in the world that don’t have to apply a UV protection coating, the lenses themselves already do it! This means that even if you scratch or dent the lenses, providing there isn’t a hole in them, they will still completely block those harmful rays – even their clear lenses do it.

Clearly then, Oakley Sunglasses are the healthy choice, but what about style? Well, Oakley Sunglasses’ new releases for 2013 combine this awesome eyewear technology with seriously cool styling including new additions from the Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses and Oakley Holbrook Sunglasses sitting next to the new kids on the block; the Oakley Two Face Sunglasses, Oakley Frogskins LX Sunglasses and Oakley Style Switch Sunglasses. Oakley use a combination of their patented O Matter frame material with other brilliant materials including acetate and their C-5 Metal Alloy. O Matter is designed to be ultra-lightweight whilst being super durable and flexible, tested to the same level as industrial strength eyewear, Oakley Sunglasses with O Matter frames will protect your eyes from any debris that may fly up. Acetate may be used by a lot of other sunglass companies, however Oakley use it to create wonderful colour and design schemes. The Oakley Frogskins LX Sunglasses and Oakley Holbrook LX Sunglasses are made from acetate and you only have to look at some of the colours to understand why Oakley have used acetate on these awesome frames.

Customisation is a big part of Oakley Sunglasses’ mantra and the new Oakley Style Switch Sunglasses take this to a whole new level. They incorporate Oakley’s outstanding Switchlock technology which had previously been reserved for sport’s specific sunglasses. Switchlock allows for quick and easy lens changes and this has seen people from across the world clambering to get their hands on this innovative frame. Each pair comes with two sets of lenses, primarily one for bright light conditions and the other for dark or overcast conditions; an invaluable asset for anyone who will be using the sunglasses for any prolonged period of time.

Jim Jannard, the founder of Oakley, had the original idea of taking something that someone has done before and making it better than anyone has ever seen. This is still prevalent in today’s Oakley Sunglasses and you can guarantee that any pair you get will be of the highest possible quality. All Oakley Sunglasses come with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty as standard for that added piece of mind and as the UK’s largest online retailer of sunglasses and watches, here at Shade Station we will always have the most up-to-date and on trend Oakley Sunglasses.
