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.
