In pop culture, it was a time like no other. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, “The Terminator” was in the box office and Run-D.M.C. was certified gold. It was also the time when Oakley created a one-of-a-kind pair of polarized sunglasses called Frogskins. Oakley has resurrected the original tooling from the early ’80s to produce new limited editions, giving you a chance to own a piece of history.

6 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
Acetate Frame - Durable, lightweight and all-day comfortable. Acetate frames are handmade and built to stand the test of time.
Three-Point Fit - Oakley’s unique Three-Point Fit holds the lenses in precise optical alignment. Their frame materials balance durability and comfort with impact absorption for athletic competition, and these frame geometries maximize your peripheral vision.
Meets or Exceeds Z80.3 Impact Standards - Optical precision and impact resistance meet or exceed ANSI Z80.3 optical and basic impact standards.
These measurements include the width of the lens, the width of the bridge, the height of the lens and the length of the arms measured in that order.
HD Polarized - By selectively filtering directional light, glare from roads, water, and snow is reduced greatly.
Iridium® - A lens coating specifically formulated for optimal balance between reflection, transmission and absorption.
Plutonite 100% UV Protection - Lightweight material offering comfort and protection against impact and ultraviolet radiation.
The impact-resistant material blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC blue light.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Fully polarized sunglasses reduce eye strain and help you see better around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
I wanted to get Ray Bans Wayfarer like most but Frogskins is better for me.
I had doubts that these might not be real Oakley, but they are and got them on sale on top of a sale!
I am a fan of Tactics now. :)
