What to Look for in Oakley Sunglasses

Before we jump into our lineup of the best Oakley men's sunglasses, let's quickly review Oakley proprietary technology and what that means for the frames.

Frame Technology

Dedicated to providing the best-performing eyewear for virtually any sport or active lifestyle, Oakley engineers have created proprietary frame materials that surpass the competition. For sunglasses, that means O Matter™ frame construction and Unobtainium™ rubber grip. You'll get lightweight and durable wear with a strategically placed grip that gets tackier when wet and stays perfectly in place no matter how much you break a sweat.

Lens Technology

As for lenses, Oakley PRIZM™ is the star of the show. This contrast-enhancing lens technology calibrates the visible light spectrum to finetune color, contrast, and clarity for your specific environment. Made from Plutonite™, Oakley's proprietary lens material, all PRIZM™ lenses are impact-resistant and deliver superior optics. And they're Rx-able!

Now that we're familiar with Oakley's proprietary technology, let's check out the frames!


If you're already familiar with Oakley, chances are you're well-acquainted the the Holbrook. This timeless design has been around for decades and continues to be one of the best-selling Oakley lifestyles frames to date. A timeless shape and clean design make it ultra-versatile, while proprietary Oakley materials amp up the performance. Made from O Matter™, you'll get extremely lightweight and durable wear. The keyhole bridge accommodates a variety of nose shapes and sizes while keeping your vision fog-free. As for style? We love the metal rivets and unique square logo that make the Holbrook a truly stand-out frame.

Not only is it made from lightweight O Matter™, but the Mainlink also features Oakley's proprietary Unobtainium™ rubber. Strategically placed along the nose pads and temples, Unobtainium gets tackier the more you sweat, so it doesn't budge even when you're on the move. The straight-back temples provide a secure fit, and also fit seamlessly with hats and helmets for impromptu games.
