Oakley teamed with Eric Koston, a legendary skate innovator and icon of urban style to create three limited editions that salute the vintage roots of authentic design. Optimized with High Definition Optics, their classic look honors the era that redefined street style and brought action sports to the forefront.
The Special Edition Plaintiff is made of Oakley's ultra lightweight C-5 alloy, and the frame finish for this edition is Brown Camo. All three designs are matched with Dark Bronze lenses that tune light transmission for bright sun, boosting visual contrast to give depth perception a kick in the right direction. Each sunglass comes in a collectible bag with brown tortoise print, and the Microclear material is specially engineered for lens cleaning.
The classic frames of fighter pilots are strafing the streets these days, but to carry our icon, they have to earn their wings. Oakley Plaintiff takes the time-honored look to new heights with dimensional stem detailing and the mechanics of Mono Shock hinges. The engineering was inspired by the leaf springs of performance racing machines, and it allows the stems to hyper flex when necessary. That means this high flyer of style can handle life’s turbulence, so it’s more than just a new take on a classic look.
Pilot glasses from the old days had flat lenses, so performance fell flat and style was two-dimensional. The Oakley Koston Plaintiff Sunglasses have 8.75 base curvature, which means the lenses are contoured for a better look and better seeing. High Definition Optics (HDO) makes it possible with innovations like XYZ Optics that extend visual clarity all the way to the periphery. Lightweight C-5 alloy takes comfort and durability sky high with unique frame architecture. Oakley's Three-Point Fit does away with hooked stems, and our Unobtainium earsocks increase grip when you perspire.
