The Oakley Frogskins are synonymous with the stone cold cool of the classic 80’s style, however with the new Acid range, it is safe to say that Oakley have kicked the boat out a bit. Due to their exclusive nature; the new Acid Tortoise Frogskins from Oakley are amongst the most sought after sunglasses for this summer! You only have to look at these limited edition ‘funglasses’ to see why they are so popular; the striking colour scheme, the classic retro shape and most importantly the 21st Century Oakley eyewear technology. They are positively brimming with spec, designed to ensure the user is comfortable, their eyes are protected from harmful UV rays and they look cool whilst wearing them.
Oakley Sunglasses lenses are completely UVA, UVB and UVC protective, meaning that even if the lenses get scratched your eyes will not be harmed. This is due to the plutonite material that the lenses are made from, it’s patented material make-up means that it is unlike any other lens material in the world. Oakley’s XYZ Optic technology means that light is never refracted through the lens and therefore your eyes will not strain to see through the lenses either. Easy to see then why people choose Oakley Frogskins over similar styles.
The new Acid range is available in five different colours with different lenses in each – all are available to view in our Oakley Frogksins section. A great feature of the new Acid Frogskins is that all of the colours have an Iridium coating on the lenses; this is the mirrored finish that really takes them from regular styles to absolute show stoppers! The inventive finishes such as Emerald Iridium, Ruby Iridium and the Fire Iridium mean that the majority of light is refelected away from the lenses, making vision clearer, sharper and more comfortable for the user.
Oakley have made this a very limited edition range and once the stock is gone…it’s gone. This is your chance to own a piece of sunglass history; whether you are an avid Oakley collector or someone who just wants a statement piece for this summer. Either way, the Oakley Acid Frogskins are available from us here at Shade Station and are not to be missed!

Valentino ‘The Doctor’ Rossi is first in the all time 500cc MotoGP race wins standings, with 79 victories, and second in the all time overall wins standings with 105 race wins and now he has joined forces with Oakley to create a range of sunglasses for this summer! He has inspired four styles for the new range; Frogskin, Deviation, Holbrook and Jupiter Squared. Each and any every one is injected with a little bit of Rossi’s unique style and flair.
The classic Frogskin style has had an appointment with The Doctor and come out the other side looking better than ever! The Polished Black frame is bold, yet aestetically pleasing and made of the patented Oakley OMatter plastic composite making them strong, yet incredibly flexible. Desgined to absorb impact, the frame itself should be able to withstand even the fastest motorbike crashes! With such a good frame, it would be a crime not to have an equally good lens and Oakley have not disappointed. Made to their usual dazzling standards, the Valentino Rossi Frogskins come with a Fire Iridium lens as standard, which boasts some of the best eyewear technology available today. Not only is it made to withstand the same impact as Industrial Protective Eyewear, the lens is self is completely UVA, UVB and UVC protective, meaning that even if they get scratched, your eyes will still be safe and sound.
No sunglasses collection would be really complete without an appearance from the classic Aviator style. This is portrayed with the Valentino Rossi Edition Oakley Deviation Sunglasses. The vintage look has been overhauled Rossi style with the teardrop shaped lenses curving inwards making a more rectangular lens shape. This is all on a 6-Base lens curvature (which is tech talk for the contour that angles back at the sides), this means that little or no light will be able to get in through the sides and bottom of the sunglasses and into your eyes! The Warm Grey lenses themselves are a category 3 lens; a dark lens which is perfect for driving and general usage.
The Oakley Holbrook’s are synonymous with a stone cold cool image and Rossi has continued this in his range whilst still adding a touch of his own outgoing personality. The yellow Oakley icons are accentuated perfectly by the simple black frame and Rossi’s signature VR46 symbol is emblazoned on the inside of the arms. The Polished Black frame is matched with Warm Grey lenses for increased visual contrast and improved depth perception in bright sun. Every pair of the Valentino Rossi Signature Holbrooks come with a Microfibre bag for storage and cleaning, decorated in the style of the sun and moon motif from Valentino’s helmet.
Finally, we come to the Valentino Rossi Signature Jupiter Squared sunglasses. The colourful Oakley icons and vibrant yellow strips on the earstems scream Rossi style and the Fire Iridium lens really sets them apart from the norm. With Oakley’s patented Three Point Fit, you can be sure that they will fit any head size or shape and the Unobtanium earsocks ensure that they will not fall off your head. This is because Unobtanium is the only rubber in the world which actually gets sticky when wet!
In summary, the new Valentino Rossi Signature range are a breath of fresh air in the world of classic sunglasses; the vibrant, unique styles combined with Oakley technology make them the must buy sunglasses of the summer!

With the Eighties revival seemingly never-ending, now is as good a time as any to embrace the trend and bag yourself an iconic pair of Oakley limited addition Frogskin sunglasses. Worn by a host of younger, on-trend celebrities, who were born years after the original Frogskin model was launched in 1985, these retro shades have seen their star rise again as the likes of Hero’s actress Hayden Panettierre, songstress Rhianna, Scarlett Johanson and Nicole Richie have been papped out and about sporting them.
Following the successful release of Ray Ban’s Wayfarer, Oakley re-released one of it’s best-selling designs and the one that turned the company into a major brand. Each pair of Frogskin shades are made from the exact same mould used in the mid-eighties and although this means the design has not been modified or improved upon, it does mean you can own a limited edition, exact replica of this classic style.
Disco dollies and fans of crazy coloured eyewear will be delighted with the new range available. Oakley have bypassed classic sunglass hues and opted for patterns like Dalmatian print, two tone shades of ‘wild berry and milk grey’, black frames with fluorescent yellow fire lenses and the celebrity eyewear of choice, the iconic white framed sunnies with bronze iridium lenses. These are just a few of the outrageous rainbow colours available, however the Frogskin is on limited release and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever… So net yourself a retro classic whilst they’re still up for grabs.
