The 2nd group of The History of Oakley by Staple Design Collection is dropping today! As with the first drop (The Eyeshade and Radar), this release consists of two styles; one from the past one from the present: The Razor Blade and The Jawbone.
The Razor Blade is available in strict limited quantities to select Oakley retailers as well as Reed Space. The Jawbone is available at oakley.com as well as Oakley Flagships.
The classic Razor Blade from 1987. With the introduction of a sleek new lens shape and Oakley’s super comfortable trigger earstems, wearers now have over 22 million permutations to choose from with the revolutionary Blade System. The Staple version is Blue with an Ice Iridium lens. It takes its inspiration from the sport of surfing (which I just learned this week!!) The white spray of the ocean splashes across the frames of this Razor Blade. Each and every single pair has been hand painted by artisans in California and hence, each is unique to itself.
(Special thanks to Chari & Co for the gears!)
You might have seen a guy named Lance rocking the Jawbone’s in the Tour De France. So it only made sense to compliment our version with a cycling inspired design. The Staple Jawbone is Matte White with a Grey Vented Lens.
Oakley’s legacy of sports performance innovation continues with the new JAWBONE. This frame is like nothing ever seen in the world of sports.
With Oakley’s new SWITCHLOCK™ Technology, the lower part of the frame rim opens to allow easy access for quick lens changing, letting you optimize performance in any light condition. The revolutionary design holds the lenses with a suspension system so stresses on the frame won’t affect the optics. With ordinary frames, flexing can change the surface contours of the lenses, causing optical distortion.
A comfortably secure fit is essential for athletic competition, so Oakley started this new design with the company’s legendary Three-Point Fit. Instead of hooking the ears like conventional frames, a Three-Point Fit ensures the frame touches the wearer only at the bridge of the nose and the sides of the head.
