What to Look For
Before we dig into some of the best traits found with Oakley sunglasses, let’s discuss a few of the features you'll want to have for volleyball specific shades. After all, this is more than just a style choice, it’s a competitive advantage on the court.
When you’re diving for that epic dig, the last thing you want to be concerned about, is your sunglasses. Imagine they go flying allowing the sun to blind you at the worst possible moment. Maybe, they slide down your nose with the frames awkwardly blocking your vision as you move to the ball. Even a poor fitting frame that presses your temples painfully or bounces loosely can be a distraction and performance inhibitor. Oakley’s sport frames will give you an athletic fit that embraces your head, and sits steady during the most jarring pancakes.
Unobtainium is the stuff of Oakley frame magic. Developed at the start of this renowned sunglasses companies history, the material molds and holds to athletes heads only becoming more grippy with sweat. This is the material that comprises the nose and arm socks on all Oakley athletic frames. You can be sure that your Oakley volleyball frames won’t be going anywhere on dives, digs, or spikes. Wraparound frames are also the way to go as they will keep most rays or irritants out of your eyes while playing.
Picture the place where you most often play volleyball. Maybe it’s a bright sunny beach with tall palms swaying in the summer breeze. Perhaps your venue is a shaded park nestled among rolling hills sprouted by sturdy oak trees. You want to serve your eyes well with the ideal lenses for the setting you play in most. You’ll most likely want a polycarbonate; rose, brown, or neutral tint which you can learn more about at our blog for the Best Beach Volleyball Sunglasses.
The Oakley Prizm lens is an athlete’s best friend. They do a great job in both low and high light settings by adjusting vision to diverse environments. This conveniently allows an athlete to not need multiple lenses. Prizm lenses will sharpen your spikes and allow you to react quicker when it counts the most.

If you are searching for a high-performance, highly Rx-able, and versatile frame, the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL checks all the boxes. The XL refers to the extra-long lens which gives these a little extra coverage. This semi-rimless, lightweight, and durable frame pairs with rubber nose pieces and temples to give you all-around protection and a sunglass that stays put.
The Oakley Turbine is designed for the active user. Those who value performance, and style. The clean-looking, comfortable frame is made from lightweight and durable O-Matter. When you combine that frame tech with Unobtanium nose and temple pads that increase grip the more you sweat, you become a force of nature. To top it all off, the rectangular lens and wrap frame keep more sunlight out so you can stay in the game longer.
Part of the Flak family, the Oakley Flak Beta gives you the durability and comfort of the Flak 2.0 XL with a more streamlined design. The Beta has slimmer temples still made from the same great comfort and durability you expect from O-Matter, while the Unobtanium nose pads absorb shock and increase grip with sweat.

These wild looking rimless frames descend from the Oakley Razorblades. You will stand out in the sand as you dig every shot.
