Women’s Sunglasses are tricky to conquer, however Oakley Sunglasses are doing just that with their new Oakley LBD Sunglasses! The squared off, classically styled sunglasses are a breath of fresh air in the women’s sunglass range as they take all the design features of regular frames and combine them seamlessly with Oakley’s innovative technology. Flowing lines and tapered arms frame the rectangular lenses for a look which will compliment the vast majority of face shapes and sizes; an invaluable asset for the fashion focussed fashionistas out there!
The frames themselves are made from Oakley’s patented O Matter plastic compound; a material which is conveniently flexible whilst being durable and safe for everyday use. From being bumped around in a handbag, to bring dropped off a skyscraper; the Oakley LBD Sunglasses are designed to take it. Impact resistant to the same level as industrial strength eyewear, you can be assured that your eyes are 100% safe and sound at all times whilst wearing these amazing sunglasses. Oakley have then adorned the frame with Unobtanium nosepads, a ground-breaking rubber composite which will actually absorb moisture and stick to your face, allowing you to wear the sunglasses for any kind of active or lifestyle activities.
As if Oakley weren’t treating you to enough amazing technology already, they have then added their patented Plutonite lenses to the Oakley LBD Sunglasses; the same lenses used in their high end sports performance gear too! Oakley have 600 patents on their lenses alone, so you can be confident in the knowledge that you are wearing some of the best eyewear and lenses the world has ever seen. This is mainly due to the optical correctness you are receiving with Plutonite; it utilises HD and XYZ optics to keep your sight clear and uninterrupted right up the very edge of your periphery for unrivalled clarity. Completely correcting refraction of light as it passes through the lens, the Oakley LBD Sunglasses will cut out any of those annoying sunglass headaches or eye strains that you may get with other often cheaper brands.
Plutonite itself is completely UVA, UVB and UVC protective meaning that even if the sunglasses get scratched, chipped or damaged your eyes will still be 100% protected from the harmful UV rays! These are the perfect set of sunglasses for any discerning lady and are more than suitable for everyday use, right up to some sport applications. Brand new to Shade Station, the Oakley LBD Sunglasses are sure to fly off the cyber shelves, so get your pre-order in quick.

A new year brings a brand new range of Oakley Sunglasses and what a year it is lining up to be already! Combinations of classic revamps and awesome new styles make for a season to remember for Oakley and here at Shade Station we like to ensure that you get the inside scoop before anyone else. Oakley are always pushing the boundaries and taking their sunglasses ‘Beyond Reason’, however there are a couple of models in this range which go above and beyond even this; styles such as Plaintiff Squared, Offshoot, Jupiter Factory Lite and News Flash are all thrown into the spotlight while new ladies sunglasses such as Given, Obsessed and LBD support the already innovative and expansive women’s collection.
Lets start by looking at the Oakley Plaintiff Squared Sunglasses, a pioneering twist on the Plaintiff – Oakley’s rendition of the classic teardrop shaped ‘Aviator’ style sunglasses. The first noticeable difference is the lenses and as you will see; the change of shape gives them a whole new persona. This ’squaring off’ technique makes them suit the vast majority of head and face shapes and Oakley’s patented three-point fit system means that they will always fit! Made from the incredibly strong yet flexible C-5 Metal Alloy material, the Oakley Plaintiff Squared Sunglasses are set to really take off in 2013.
In the Autumn of 2012 we were treated to the release of the Oakley Big Taco Sunglasses, a larger framed sunglass which has a shed load of personality. This year Oakley have taken the Big Taco and moulded it into the Oakley Offshoot Sunglasses; they feature a shield lens and give the user an amazing field of view and visual clarity. As with all Oakley Sunglasses they feature patented Plutonite lenses which are made from a polycarbonate compound specifically designed to be tough yet optically correct. Oakley call this technology HDO or High Definition Optics, this means that light is not distorted as it passes through the lenses and you will have perfect vision at all times – completely eliminating those annoying ’sunglass headaches’!
For us however the most exciting new release has to be the Oakley Jupiter Factory Lite Sunglasses, which are in fact a UK exclusive right here at Shade Station! Made from real Carbon Fibre and CNC machined aluminum, they are ultra-lightweight yet amazingly durable and have been tooled with tolerances of just 0.0005″! Oakley have fitted the frames with Twin Shock Hinges which were inspired by the leaf springs of professional racing machines and their flexible titanium alloy ensures a comfortable fit while providing a degree of hyper-flexing when necessary. On top of this, they have also been engineered with Unobtanium components on the arms to keep them secure on your head at all times. Unobtanium is Oakley’s patented rubber and is made from a compound which actually grips to your head the more it gets wet; allowing you to exert yourself and still have peace of mind that your sunglasses will stay put.
Taking a closer look at the new Oakley ladies sunglasses, it is clear to see that they have honed in on the all important trend and styling element; utilising ideas from the more fashion focused sunglass brands and combining them with their own innovative technology. One of the most exciting new styles are the Oakley News Flash Sunglasses which take a classic shape and given it a complete overhaul; adding striking temple designs and shapes to give the News Flash Sunglasses that added dimension. Colours are used to fantastic effect with multi-toned frames and conveniently practical lenses. The Oakley News Flash Sunglasses are made from Oakley’s patented O Matter frame material; a compound which is incredibly strong yet durable and which is tested to the same degree as industrial strength eyewear!
Much like the Oakley Daisy Chain Sunglasses, the Oakley Given Sunglasses use the classic ‘Aviator’ shape lenses to devastatingly wonderful effect. The thin C-5 Alloy frames feature beautiful temple designs and the multi-toned frames appeal to even the most discerning lady! Oakley have not really been known for their stylish women’s sunglasses, but this year they have certainly put this right. The Oakley Given Sunglasses also feature the amazing Plutonite lenses and these are 100% UVA, UVB and UVC protective which provides complete protection for your eyes in even the strongest sunlight. Unlike many other lenses, the UV protection is not added via a coating, but is actually built into the lenses meaning that even if they get scratched or chipped your eyes will still be safe as houses!
Last but not least we come to the Oakley Obsessed Sunglasses and Oakley LBD Sunglasses, these styles are designed to be for the more fashion conscious lady and feature beautifully thin arms, trendy colourways and interesting temple designs. Unobtanium ear stem ends are Oakley’s injection of innovation on these ranges and make them undeniably more practical than other brands looking to vie for the top fashion stakes this year.
Here at Shade Station we like to showcase the best new sunglasses and it is safe to say that Oakley are going to really take the limelight this season. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates…Happy New Year everyone!

British cycling heavyweight and national gem, Mark Cavendish has romped to victory in Tournai this week making it his 21st Tour de France stage win! Many people believe this is down to his years of dedication and training; but some of it must be because of the Oakley Sunglasses he wears, providing him with an almost unfair advantage over other riders. His new Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses provide full protection for his eyes no matter what hazards the tour may throw at him whether it be stones being flicked up from tyres or the terrifically bright sunlight. This amazing milestone makes him the tour’s fifth most prolific rider, showing that it is no wonder why he is classed as an Oakley ambassador.
The new Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses are a breakthrough in the already highly advanced world of sports performance sunglasses; ladened with technology and designed to enhance all forms of performance, they really showcase exactly what Oakley can really do. Their HD Optics mean that light is never refracted through the sheild lens, giving you complete and uninterrupted vision. This means that your eyes will never strain or become tired, which is invaluable for someone like Mark Cavendish in a long slog such as the Tour de France. Oakley technology is strictly patented and no other sunglass company can make lenses like Oakley can.
Oakley’s sunglasses and lenses are tested to the same standard as industrial eyewear and this is more than enough to protect your eyes during normal usage. You can be sure if anything flicks up from a road surface and hits your sunglasses, your eyes will be completely safe and sound behind the flexible, plutonite lenses. Oakley’s new Switchlock system allows the user to change their lenses quickly and easily to adapt to any light or weather condition at any time. The benefit of having the full array of Oakley’s performance lenses at your disposal gives you a significant edge over your competitors! Not to mention the 8-base lens curvature which wraps around the eyes and head providing you with full periferal coverage from any harmful UV rays and sunlight, meaning that they are a healthy choice too.
Make sure to follow the Manx Missile this summer and even grab your own pair of trailblazing Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses.

Adidas is one of the most loved sports fashion brands in the world and is probably one of the oldest having being founded over 60 years ago. Famous for its three stripe branding, Adidas is popular for its high quality yet affordable range of footwear, shoes, watches and snow goggles. The brand was founded by Adi Dassler who was a shoe maker from a small rural town who wanted to create a shoe that was original in design yet practical and durable.
The company was gradually passed down the Dassler family over the years but is now run by Bernard Tapie who is responsible for extending the Adidas product lines to further clothing and accessories but still likes to maintain the original core brand values which is what makes Adidas so popular today. With names such as Run-DMC associating themselves with Adidas, the brand is now synonymous with a cool and funky image and regarded as highly on trend. The Adidas timeline is quite extrordinary and marks the launch of some iconic products including the tracksuit which again, wasn’t popular before Adidas put its name to it.
Adidas goggles are one of the recently launched accessories by the brand and like all Adidas products, are favoured for their practical capabilities and stylish aesthetic.
Adidas goggles aim to combine the best of Adidas sport technology as well as stylish features and the result is a range of simple designs that are comfortable to wear, highly durable and highly effective in terms of visual protection and performance.
Here are some of the unique features of Adidas goggles-:
- Vision advantage PC lenses which provide 100% UV protection, are resistant to impact forces, are shatterproof, lightweight, scratch resistant, and provide an exceptionally high level of optical quality.
- Ventilation system – the men’s Yodia goggles feature this.
- Quick change lens system which enables the wearer to change the lenses according to the light and weather conditions.
- Anti-fog coated lenses – the men’s Burna goggles incorporate this.
- Siliconised adjustable strap which provides extra security and guarantees that your goggles will stay in place.
- Fully padded soft face foam – a soft, comfortable layer of goggle foam that provided the wearer with a unique custom-fit feel and allows you to be comfortable with your goggles on throughout the day. The men’s ID2 goggles feature this.
Adidas goggles have been designed to be simple and to meet snow sport objectives. The collection has been created and developed for and with professional athletes and provides ultimate visual clarity, optimum protection, a customised fit and maximum durability. When skiing or snowboarding, eye and face protection is paramount and Adidas goggles effectively counteract the effects of the wind, sun and snow and provide exceptional visual clarity. When safety is the primary objective; style of course must come further down the line but the range of Adidas goggles are incredibly stylish, incorporating the famous Adidas three stripe branding and are designed in a range of cool and funky styles which reflects the typical simplicity that Adidas has always favoured.
Superb high quality, durability, comfort, style and affordability, Adidas goggles are the perfect way to accessorise every snow adventure.
