Description of Oakley Latch™ Matte Olive Ink/Emerald Iridium Glasses OO9265-05
A creative collaboration from the world of skateboarding, this design inspired by influential athletes is shaped with a classic keyhole bridge and the curves of rounded lens orbitals, and Oakley engineered it with the convenience of an interior kick-up feature that lets you clip it to your shirt.
Skate icon Eric Koston, renowned photographer Atiba Jefferson and two of the sport’s brightest young talents, Sean Malto and Curren Caples, came together to form a unique collective with the Oakley Design team. Pulling from the inspirations and stories that have influenced and crafted their individual successes in skateboarding and beyond, the four creators immersed themselves in the Oakley design process, motivated by a new creative outlet that none of the guys had previously pursued.
Designed for skaters by skaters, Latch is what happens when creatives collaborate. It’s a tribute to the experimental and innovative mindset that exists in the skate community, with a nod to style and functionality, making it a piece that will transcend skateboarding.
How Latch Works:
Latch has a secret feature that inspired this product’s name. When skating indoors or after the sun goes down, you need a place to stash your shades so Latch was developed to clip onto your T-Shirt to help them stay in place.
