Finish Line » Oakley Finish Line's Blog Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:19:12 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Oakley Retro Tue, 05 Nov 2013 23:08:29 +0000 From socks to backpacks, Oakley makes everything you need to put together a fresh outfit. Since retro is in right now, let’s take a look at some of the latest retro from Oakley.

Men’s Oakley Side Mark Crew Socks

The more vibrant the sock, the better, and the Oakley Side Mark Crew Sock definitely has vibrancy. Available in a variety of neon colorways, including one with a rasta theme, these crew socks become the focal point of any outfit. The old-school Oakley logo branded on the side really enhances the retro feel for a trendy look.

Oakley Factory Light Backpack

Whether you are heading to school, work, or just out for some fun, you’ll be stylish in the Oakley Factory Light Backpack. This bag features the same retro style Oakley logo as the crew socks, and with a nylon outer shell, you’ll look like you came straight from ’80s. When you’re done with the pack, it easily folds itself into one of the side pockets, which makes it much easier and convenient to store.  

Oakley Factory Lite Duffel Bag

If backpacks aren’t really your style, the Oakley Factory Lite Duffel Bag is another option. It too features the classic retro look and it also conveniently folds into itself for easy storage. With a 31L main storage part capacity is also good for those days when you have to carry around a little extra luggage.

How cool is that? This makes transporting the empty bag and storing it way easier than ever before.

If the internal fold pocket is the coolest feature of this bag, the color options are definitely a close second. Available in Hibiscus, Neon Yellow, and Eminence Blue, whatever color you pick out, you and your bag are guaranteed to stand out. Other cool features of this bag include shoulder straps or grip handle carry options, additional interior and external pockets for easy organization, and a water-resistant finish.

5 Sunglasses That Are Sure To Stay On Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:00:23 +0000 Slowly, but surely, the weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. With the increased amount of sunlight, and the warmth of the sun sticking around, it’s getting to be that time of the year to get outside and get active. While you’re doing that, it’d be a good idea to look into picking up some shades for the season. We’ve specially chosen a few that will be sure to keep up with you and stay on all day long.


The Under Armour Surge Sunglasses straddle the line between casual and sporty, while being functional and affordable at the same time. Available in three different color combinations, there’s something for every active athlete.


Another option from Under Armour is their Power Sunglasses. Falling in at a slightly higher price point than the Surge Sunglasses, the difference in price provides an upgrade in the form of more coverage with a wider range of peripheral vision.


When it comes to sports sunglasses, Oakley is on top in that department, and judging by the Crankcase Sunglasses, that statement is warranted. The sunglasses possess a subtly square set of lenses that are perfect for the urban outgoer.


If you want to kick it up a notch with an edgier-looking pair of sunglasses, check out the Oakley Radar Path Sunglasses. This pair is engineered for the on-the-go athlete; with a hydrophobic lens coating repels water and skin oils to keep the lenses clean and clear.


The Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 is one of the brand’s top-of-the-line models marked by its versatility and ability to adapt to changing light conditions. While remaining lightweight, this pair features Unobtainium ear socks and grip anchors for a little added assurance that these aren’t falling off if things get shaky.


For the upcoming outdoor sports season, a good pair of sunglasses that are sure to stick around and hang tight are essential, so check these out and also the rest of our selection over at

Oakley Team USA Jawbone Sunglasses

What’s better than keeping the sun out of your eyes and supporting your country at the same time?

What Sunglass Shape is Right for Your Face? Tue, 26 Feb 2013 12:00:04 +0000 Even though it’s wintertime, it’s always sunglass season. Although styles change as the years and trends go by, there are rules to live by when making a sunglass purchase. So, whatever your facial shape is, we’ve got a few tips to keep in mind when you’re done wearing ball caps and using your trusty hand visor.

If your face is round, you want to shoot for something more geometrical to make your face appear longer and thinner. In terms of size, it’s best to go for a medium-sized set of frames as too big is, well, too big and too small won’t draw enough attention away from your round head. Try out the Big Taco shades by Oakley.

Heart-shaped face people, our hearts go out to you. Your face is a little top-heavy, so in this case, you want to go for some bottom-heavy frames to add width to the lower portion of your face. We would recommend the Oakley Dispatch II Sunglasses.

For you box-headed guys and gals, go against the grain with some oval or round glasses. For women, the butterfly shape is the go-to option. The Vestal Himalayas Sunglasses are cute, modern, and fun, and since you’re a square, you’re going to want to avoid going for the square frames at the sunglass counter. Trust me on this one.

Now, for the oval-shaped face population. The rest of us secretly despise and envy at the same time, because you’re just so perfect and you can’t do any wrong, sunglass-wise. Only thing to keep in mind for y’all, stay within your range regarding size. One option for you guys is the Under Armour Stride Sunglasses. They have sporty vibes and a lightweight feel.

Last, but not least, we didn’t forget about you top-light, bottom-light, middle-heavy diamond-shaped face people. We love your cheeks, and you should as well, so go rimless to accentuate them. The Oakley Deviation Sunglasses have just enough of that edgy feel, while also staying classy. When going rimless, you want to make sure you’re going big. Small frames will draw too much attention to your relatively narrow eye line.

Take a look at your sunglass arsenal, and see if they match up with what you should go with. If so, good job. If not, well now you know what to do.

The Oakley Holbrook Wed, 06 Feb 2013 12:00:12 +0000 Sunglasses aren’t just for the summertime. If anything, when the winter sun hits the snow, things can get brighter than the month of July. So, to answer the call, Oakley’s got a pair of sunglasses that are both season-proof and timeless, and we’re here to tell you all about them.

In order to make them perfect for wintertime, Oakley took some advice from the man that lives from winter to winter: none other than snowboarding phenom, Shaun White. Dubbed the Oakley Holbrook, Shaun and his brother, Jesse, teamed up with the eyewear and apparel maker to create some shades with a truly classic feel to them. What better way to do that than to go with a wayfarer-shaped frame that just screams vintage.

If you feel like you’ve seen something like this before, you probably have. Think back to the 1950s. The archetypical leader/loner of the time period would more than likely be seen strutting around with these on, without a cause, and if he did have one, he sure wasn’t telling you about it. He adhered to a code, unwritten most likely, marked by a odd mix of defiance and steadfastness.

Wondering where the “Holbrook” name came from? That gets its inspiration from a small town in Arizona situated in the middle of no man’s land. You know, the type of area where that old classic western would take place that epitomized exploration and adventure.

While the name Oakley speaks for itself and carries with it a level of prestige, we still feel the need to tell you all about the Holbrook. For one, it’s durable, as evidenced by the metal bolts holding together the stress-resistant frame. While bringing durability, it still manages to remain lightweight and functional, filtering out every UV ray.

The only thing left to do now is to check them out, and with 12 different color options, there’s something for everyone, regardless of your preference.

Shaun White: The Style Icon Thu, 31 Jan 2013 20:21:06 +0000 While you may never have guessed that a person nicknamed “the Flying Tomato” could be considered a style icon, well, guess again. Pro snowboarder/skateboarder Shaun “The Flying Tomato” White is unquestionably a style icon. At 26 years old, and having already won 2 Olympic gold medals and countless X games golds, Shaun White is having the time of his life, and he most certainly reflects that in his style.

No matter if Shaun is out skating on the weekend or attending a casual event, people are going to notice him wherever he goes. Sometimes it might be a wild pair of printed pants, perhaps with an American flag or zebra stripes, or some gaudy jewelery such as a large medallion or a few over-sized finger rings, Shaun always has at least one piece in his outfit that will guarantee heads will turn. His long and flowing red hair also allows for much versatility, and he has the choice of rocking it down by itself, with a bandanna, or with a unique hat such as a derby or a floppy eared. As far as his shirts are concerned, you can usually spot him showing off a little chest, either with a button-down buttoned far down, or perhaps a deep v-neck t-shirt. If the sun is out, expect to see him wearing a pair of his signature Oakley Holbrook shades.

When Shaun’s at a formal red carpet event, such as the ESPY awards, his style is much more classy, but nonetheless just as unconventional as his everyday. Slim fitting suits are a must for Shaun on the red carpet, and you’ll see him experimenting with different patterns or materials such as pinstripes or tweed. Just as in his casual style he is still not afraid to show a little chest, even on the red carpet. Not all the time, but sometimes you will see him with a nice button-down dress shirt buttoned up only two-thirds of the way. Maybe it’s because he is a professional snowboarder/skateboarder, but he can pull off the messy but classy look better than no other.

A little unconventional, but what more would you expect from a professional snowboarder? Nevertheless, Shaun still manages to captivate the attention of anyone who runs into him on the red carpet, or on the streets. He is not afraid to do his own thing, and his fun and free personality definitely reflects in his style. Shaun “The Flying Tomato” White is most certainly a style icon.
