Oakley's New Prizm Lenses Make Julian Wilson('s Surfing) Even More Beautiful

A good pair of sunglasses exists to serve two main purposes: To look fucking cool and to provide protection for you eyes. Oakley’s new PRIZM technology adds a third. It involves what they call ultra precise colour tuning, for any environment. We’ll let them explain: “by fine-tuning individual wavelengths of colour, PRIZM sharpens visual acuity to reveal nuances that would be missed by the naked eye.” 

To illustrate this, we quite simply placed the filter over footage of Julian Wilson surfing on the Sunshine Coast. The first half is what the moment would look if you were standing on the beach bare-eyed. The second? How it would appear if you were wearing PRIZM technology. Notice the richer colours. The softening of harsh whites. The easy-on-the-eye contrast. And shouldn’t life always look that way: richer, less harsh, easy-on-the-eyes.

You probably know Oakley for their classic Frogskins, or those big wraps you’ve seen Kolohe Andino wearing in his post-heat interviews on the WSL webcast. But Oakley has some really good contemporary styles in their collection. Easily on the top of this list is the Latch, an easy-wearing modern classic.
