Oakley Eyewear: The Story

At present, Oakley presides over a range of different products, from sport gear to bicycles to helmets to pads. T shirts and other types of clothing are also available from Oakley and it is currently a multinational brand that functions in several different countries. Just like any other large company, Oakley has an illustrious history, as described below.

The owner and founder of Oakley, Jim Jannard, began the company back in 1975. His initial investment was a total of $300, and he began the company from his garage. The name of the company was chosen as Oakley after Jannard’s dog, which was also called Oakley. His first product to go on sale was referred by him as the Oakley Grip, which he began to sell from the back of his car at a number of different motocross events. At that time, his motorcycle grips were completely different and unlike anything that riders had seen before. This was because he made use of a material he had patented himself under the name of ‘Unobtainium’. This was created by Jannard himself.
