Shaun White + Oakley= an awesome pair of sunglasses that will instantly improve your snowboarding skills.*

*May not actually improve your snowboarding skills, but they definitely look awesome.

Shaun worked with his brother Jesse and the Oakley team to give us Holbrook, a brand new sunglass:
The name “Holbrook” comes from a small town on Route 66, a place in the badlands with all the “grit and glory of the open road”. Shaun wanted these sunglasses to represent the American cool. He was inspired by American film legends from the 1940′s-1960′s. Mix James Dean and Shaun White? Can you fit that much “cool” in the world? Me thinks not.

Here’s Oakley’s more detailed description of the sunglasses: “Holbrook gets the full Oakley treatment with the performance and protection you expect from our icon. The stress-resistant frame is made of a lightweight synthetic called O Matter®. We highlighted it with metal bolts and icons, then got busy with technology. Optical precision and impact resistance meet the uncompromising standards of ANSI Z87.1 to offer superior clarity and protection, and multiple lens/frame combinations are available. All feature High Definition Optics® (HDO®) with pure Plutonite® lenses that filter out 100% of all UV, not just UVA and UVB.

You can select optional Oakley HDPolarized Lenses that match unbeatable HDO performance and protection with premium glare filtering. Get lenses with Iridium® coating to tune light for maximized performance in a chosen environment, or opt for gradient lens shading — darker at the top and lighter at the bottom. You can even match Holbrook with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses (+2.00 to -4.00 combined power) with a wide array of options.”
