Oakley pays tribute to Californian roots

Oakley

Inspired by Oakley’s southern California heritage, the 2014 Oakley Golf Collection looks to lead the golf market in dry conditions, water repellence, and protection from the sun.

The over arching philosophy behind all products in the Oakley range is ‘light and low’. Shoes, bags, and apparel are lightest in class to improve stability, comfort, and climate control, even on the hottest days.
