It’s common knowledge that Oakley rule the mountains, seas and fresh water when it comes to protective eyewear. With 30 years of sports accessory innovation and design, Oakley are undoubtedly the masters of their game.
With the ski season upon us and the first signs of snowfall in the UK uniting the nation, it’s time to gear up for the big freeze! If you’re planning a ski trip abroad this winter it’s essential that you hit the slopes with the right kit. Boards and ski apparatus can be hired at the resort but it’s important that you pack good quality, practical ski wear and DO NOT forget your eyewear!
Your eyes are very sensitive to bright light and the light is particularly dazzling on the mountains, as it reflects off the snow. Although sunglasses designed for sport do the job admirably, goggles will really give your eyes the protection they need. Oakley googles are designed using 3D Cranial Geometry, ensuring a snug fit, and layered with a triple layer of foam, making for a comfortable ride. With polarised lenses, protecting against glare and reinforced materials to offer protection on impact, Oakley goggles are guaranteed to make you feel safer as you tackle those hairy mountain runs!
It’s not unusual to see the A-list enjoying the mountain air and they all know that protective eyewear shields against the glare of the sun and the prying eyes of the public! Younger Hollywood stars, particularly the likes of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are often seen wearing both snowboard helmets and googles for ultimate winter sports protection. Not only are Oakley googles practical, they also improve your clarity of vision on the slopes and lend you an air of professionalism.

Planning on a holiday to enjoy some winter sports? Aside from packing the essential skis/ snowboard and thermal gear, don’t forget essential ski goggles. The harsh UV rays combined with the glare of the snow can make uncomfortable conditions for anyone not wearing protective eyewear, and a day on the slopes can be very miserable without decent ski goggles – especially in extreme weather conditions such as snow, sleet and heavy rain.
When skiing any old shades won’t do – ski goggles are specifically made large to provide protection for the upper face as well as for the eyes, and at the same time allow the skier a wide view. Comfortable and flexible materials are also the choice for frames, with many designed elastic straps that go around the head, so that they maintain grip to the face and do not cause friction in the bitter cold. Such soft materials also ensure eyes remain protected from damage if a skier loses their footing and takes a tumble in the snow.
UV protection, anti-fogging features and the perfect lens tint are also a must to ensure you get maximum performance and protection from your goggles.
Of course practicality remains top of the list when buying your ski goggles, but with the great range available these days you can still look good on the slopes – think alpine chic!
With the likes of Dragon, Adidas, Oakley and Von Zipper being experts in producing the best possible skiing goggles, you can’t go wrong when it comes to choosing the right pair for you at Shade Station. Not only do the goggles come complete with all the necessary protective features to hit the slopes, but the brands have also become savvy to the fact that celebrities and the likes want to ski in style and have produced some great ranges in various flashy colours, tinted lenses and frame shapes.
