After debuting its radical OVERTHETOP performance sunglasses at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, eyewear aficionados Oakley return for Tokyo 2020 with a style it hopes will disrupt sport like it did twenty-one years ago.

Incorporating its unique lens architecture, the all-new Xeus model draws inspiration from the kabuto of samurai, the legendary warrior of the Olympics’ host country, Japan. Set to be worn by select Team Oakley athletes across an array of events, Xeus is designed to provide inspiration and unlock the mindset of a god to make possible the impossible on the field of play and beyond.

Utilising Oakley’s PhysioMorphic Geometry to create a lens design that provides optimized coverage and frame-like retention, the Xeus marks the brand’s third new style of the year. Boasting a Prizm 24K lens that’s been engineered to enhance color and detail, the limited-edition release arrives in a unique display case built within a hand-painted Tokyo cityscape.

Xeus is set to drop globally on August 12 and will be available from the Oakley webstore.

In other news, Snow Peak and JINS have dropped a selection of outdoors-inspired eyewear.
