Oakley is one of the most innovative of sunglasses manufacturers, and customers have come to expect a regular roll-out of new sunglass models.
Every month seems to feature a new design or an upgrade to their current range of lifestyle and sports sunglasses.
Oakley has always striven to blend stylish design with technological breakthroughs and, although exact figures aren't available, probably spends more on R&D than any other sunglasses maker.
Oakley sunglasses are part of the Luxottica stable, one of the world's largest eyewear companies controlling 80% of major brand named glasses including Ray-Ban, Chanel, Miu Miu, Bvlgari and Persol.
But Oakley has always retained its own identity and has become probably the best-known maker of sports eyewear with a broad range of products.
Designed for performance as well as style most Oakley sunglasses have been developed with extensive input from professional athletes and undergo extreme testing to ensure they meet or surpass industry safety and toughness standards.
