Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses Polished Black Frame with Warm Grey Lens

Return of a classic.

Oakley released their first Frogskins Sunglasses back in the 1980s.

Frogskins stood out because they were the first cycling sunglasses whose cool looks made them eminently wearable off the bike too.

Up till then, Oakley had made their name with their original Factory Pilot cycling sunglasses. Factory Pilot cycling sunglasses were legendary, thanks to their wraparound wind blocking shape, their UV-blocking, bulletproof lenses, their optical acuity and the fact that they were adopted by cycling legends such as Greg Lemond. However, even their biggest fans admitted that Oakley Factory Pilots looked like welders' goggles.

The Frogskin breakthrough was to create a normal double-lens set of sunglasses with classic looks.

The key factor for Frogskins' success was that Oakley did not compromise on the quality of their lenses, or the quality of their construction.

Over the decades, Oakley's sunglasses collection grew and grew with the introduction of various generations of Jackets, for instance, until they quietly dropped the original Frogskins.

Some customers yearned for this most 'normal' set of sunglasses however, and Oakley have responded by resurrecting the original mouldings and relaunching this icon of eyewear. Welcome back our Froggy friends.

This version of the Frogskins comes with Warm Grey lenses whose 10% transmission factor makes them perfect for bright light conditions.

'Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses

The classic cool of a vintage eyewear design, our very first dual-lens shades, Frogskins offer all the clarity and protection of High Definition Optics®, along with the comfort of lightweight and stress-resistant O Matter™ frame material.

Frogskins aren’t just for leading today’s look with smooth retro style. They carry premium optics, courtesy of Plutonite® lens material that maintains superior clarity while filtering out all ultraviolet light – not just UVA and UVB. And with Oakley HDO® lenses featured in every frame, you’ll have sharp and accurate vision with optical performance and impact resistance rated at ANSI Z87.1, the high mark of today’s standards.'
