Following on from last year’s Tour-inspired range, the new collection includes special editions of the Eyeshade, Radarlock Path and Racing Jacket glasses. Each model features a yellow, green and polka dot band across the frame, to represent the special classification jerseys.
Oakley’s founder, James Jannard, had a simple philosophy: “Seek out problems that affect the world’s best athletes, find solutions, and wrap them in art.” The new Tour de France collection has certainly continued that.

The Eyeshade (£200/ US$200 / AU$269) is a throwback to the 80s – when athletes embraced the revolutionary original Eyeshade frame, which provided a secure fit, and high-level clarity and peripheral vision.
The TDF collection also includes the renowned Radarlock Path (£255.00 / US$330 / AU$379) and the Racing Jacket (£200.00/ US$250 / AU$319).
