Agfluide.com Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsey Vonn speak at Oakley panel Monday

cheap oakley sunaglssesMonday, on her 22nd birthday, Eagle-Vail’s Mikaela Shiffrin gave an interesting answer that leads to more questions about the superstar’s future in ski racing.

“To be honest, I’m still not totally sure that skiing is my purpose,” Shiffrin said. “I think I have multiple purposes, and that’s one of the most exciting things about being young and having the success that I’ve had is that I may be able to explore those other purposes some day.”

Shiffrin already has 31 World Cup victories to her name, including two over the weekend in Squaw Valley, California. A three-time reigning slalom World Champion and 2014 Olympic gold medalist, Shiffrin likely will win her first overall World Cup title this weekend at the Finals in Aspen.

She was one of a handful of big name stars to talk Monday at Casa Tua in Aspen during a panel hosted by Oakley titled “Obsession x Innovation Exchange.”

“Along the lines of obsession, ever since I was little I loved skiing and I never really knew why. I was just passionate about it,” Shiffrin said. “The obsession for me is just feeling like every day I made some breakthrough, no matter how big or small it is.”

cheap oakleyShiffrin locked up the slalom title last weekend in California — her fourth in five years in the discipline — and sits 80 points back of France’s Tessa Worley in the giant slalom standings with only Sunday’s race remaining.

Shiffrin leads Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec by a comfortable 378 points in the chase for the overall title.

Sitting next to Shiffrin on the panel was Vail’s Lindsey Vonn, who trails only Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark for most career World Cup victories (86 to 77). Also on the panel Monday were Erik Guay, Canada’s all-time career leader in World Cup wins, and the Norwegian duo of Aksel Lund Svindal and Henrik Kristoffersen.

Svindal, 34, is a two-time overall World Cup champion (2007, 2009) who won Olympic gold in super-G at the 2010 Vancouver Games. He is sitting out the Finals this week as he recovers from knee surgery. This didn’t stop him from stealing the spotlight, however, his harmless banter with the others leading to plenty of laughs from the packed, invite-only room.

“There is something about skiing that is keeping people grounded,” Svindal said. “If you just like winning, then you aren’t going to be good at it. You have to love skiing, because there is a lot of skiing that has nothing to do with winning.”

Non-athletes on the panel included Wayne Chumbley, the performance testing manager for Oakley Vision, and Lyndsay Young, a physical therapist for the U.S. Ski Team. ESPN senior writer Alyssa Roenigk moderated the event.

“For me, I don’t normally do events like this at Finals,” Vonn said. “When we all do it together, then it makes it worthwhile.”

Sunglasses Styled on Shades from Movie Classics

The 5TH opened in 2014 with a unique business model: the online store is only open five days in a month.

The Melbourne-based brand began with watches, then expanded to bags and now it’s launched a Oakley sunglasses range with 10 unisex frames, designed by Californian product designer Thomas Moran.

The collection is a minimal and modern interpretation of classic designs. The inspiration? Iconic film characters.

“We thought if clothing can be stars of movies, like Marty McFly’s puffer vest from Back to the Future, or James Dean’s red jacket, sunglasses could too,” says The 5TH managing director Alex McBride.

Take your pick from the “Clarence”, modelled on Whoopi Goldberg’s shades in Sister Act, the “Golightly” a throwback to Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s or the “Goodson”, named after Tom Cruise in Risky Business.

The five styles each come in two colourways, and are handmade in Italy. While each references a classic Hollywood film, they’re not exactly retro. The sleek acetate frames and simple metal detailing keep the styles firmly modern.

As with the rest of The 5TH‘s products, a limited amount of Oakley sunglasses will be on sale on the brand’s online store for five days each month. Customers sign up to the website to receive updates and an exclusive store password to access new products.

“We didn’t see our view as being confined to watches,” McBride says. “We had lots of feedback from our last customer survey saying people wanted to see us to small leather accessories and Oakley sunglasses cheap.

“There’s also this element of wanting to create a ‘lifetime brand’, where we can provide products for every stage of someone’s life.”

Between Balenciaga and Kendall Jenner, The Matrix Sunglasses Are Making a Comeback in Paris

Demna Gvsalia gave sci-fi geeks something to squeal about today at his Fall 2017 show for Balenciaga. Several of the models wore skinny, futuristic Oakely sunglasses that looked like they were plucked straight from Keanu Reeves’s face, from somewhere deep inside The Matrix. Remember the mind-bending, reality-altering red and blue pills of 1999? Well, Neo himself has reemerged this season thanks to Gvsalia and truth be told, the designer isn’t the only one feeling the look in Paris this week. Attico co-founder Gilda Ambrosio was spotted wearing similar shades on the street, while Kendall Jenner has been occasionally rocking the eyewear between shows. The supermodel even wore them with an entire Matrix-inspired ensemble of black-on-black and a long leather trench.
At Balenciaga, the Oakley sunglasses proved to be surprisingly versatile when worn with both a voluminous pink couture gown and an easy polka dot blouse. And on the streets, they’re as cool and oddly covetable as any old cat eye or aviator. In reviewing this burgeoning accessories trend set forth by Gvsalia and Kendall in Paris, it might be time to reconsider your everyday shades this season—even at the risk of looking a little bit like everyone’s favorite anarchistic hacker.
