Oakley Minute - Blue Tortoise/Black Iridium

Oakley Minute - Blue Tortoise/Black Iridium

Oakley was founded in 1975 by avid motocross fan Jim Jannard who named the brand after his pet dog ‘Oakley Anne’. He started out by producing motorcycle grips constructed from ‘Unobtanium’, a unique rubber material that he had created which offered a far better grip in wet conditions than any others around at the time. It wasn’t until 1984 that Oakley made their move into the eyewear market, which they would go on to completely revolutionise with unique ground-breaking designs. The ‘Jacket’ family of sunglasses by Oakley, starting with the ‘Eye Jacket’ in 1994, aimed at producing frames that fit the face like clothing fits the body. The popularity of this range of sunglasses propelled the brand forward through the 1990s and solidified their position as a leader of innovation.

The Oakley Minute 1.0, first released in 1998 (Gen 1) and re-worked a year later (Gen 2), is one of the most popular models due to it’s slightly smaller proportions and sleek design. The O-Matter frame and Unobtanium earsocks allow for a comfortable fit and increased grip with sweat and moisture, and the impact-resistant Plutonite lenses with Iridium coating offer the highest definition XYZ optics. The unique lens shape ensures that the level of protection or optical clarity offered was not impacted by the smaller frame size. Further details such as the protruding nose bridge adds a sharper, slightly more aggressive appearance. Colour-coded Oakley branding on the stems and bridge round-off one of Oakley’s most iconic frames.
