    Hi Everyone, just wanted to know what you guys think. What made you love Oakley?

    Personally a long time ago in High School I played for Varsity Baseball and they gave us a free pair of Oakley's just for being on the team. The first Oakley I had, The Radars. That is what made me love Oakley.

    A "cool factor" to their products. Also the "purpose beyond reason". Sometimes they make products out of teh blue that are so unique. Defies the norm. Also most of their products are good quality (eyewear of course)...some backpacks are good. Cant vouch too much on watches...bad experiences..

    The Colors! Back in the 90's they had the most outrageous color-ways. And no one else seemed to have the quality. The imitators could almost match the color but their quality just sucked.

    Best thing about liking oakleys is meeting people that share the same addiction to the brand.
