Everyone would love a pair of cheap Oakley sunglasses, particularly when the price tag for everyday sunshades can go far into the excess of £100! One of the lead innovators for sports sunglasses and goggles, Oakley is one of the most prestigious designer brands around when it comes to glasses and has earned this prestige through some of the most important creations in sports shades. The road to this success has not been easy for Oakley or its creator Jim Jannard, as his scientific approach to sports glasses was so unlike anything seen before that designers simply didn’t know what to think of the sunshades he wanted to develop. Working alone on his own company, Jannard created the O Frame goggles, which were perfectly curved to give those a wider peripheral vision. The professionals adore these new sunglasses and Oakley was soon a big hit. With 600 patents to their name and constant innovation behind the scenes, it’s clear to see that this level of effort and consideration doesn’t come cheap! Features you can expect from Oakley sunglasses include:
- 100% UV filtering
- A lens that doesn’t shift perspective
- A plethora of lens tints that are suitable for a range of activities and environments
- Impact resistance
- Hydrophobic coating that repels some liquids and doesn’t allow build-up
- Clearer, sharper images with the speciality Oakley’s High Definition Optics built in
Okay, so you’re not gonna get Oakley sunglasses cheap, not even their range of lifestyle sunglasses that aren’t designed for professional sportsmen and women. That’s the beauty of the brand however as they still work as hard to promote innovation with their designer glasses no matter where or why they’re being used. Every pair is designed to be stylish and understated, practical for using every single day with the assurance that this brand won’t let you down.
Obviously Oakley sunglasses have a prestigious track record when it comes to sports so it’s no surprise that they work with some of the biggest names in sports as well as the largest events. Their 2012 London Olympics collection has models that are exclusive to the UK and this encompasses practical everyday glasses for casual use as well as professional standard glasses that are ideal for those who want professional sports quality. Whilst these excellent designer glasses aren’t cheap, in fact many are completely inaccessible to a majority of customers, you can’t opt for one of the cheaper brands and hope to get the same results. Oakley sunglasses have used cutting edge technology and science to bring us the range of sunshades they have today and this is why a "cheap” pair comparatively with other brands isn’t to be found in their premium collection.
