For a brand that has built a reputation for innovation, it's easy to forget Oakley has a considerable heritage. The California company has been making sunglasses for athletes since 1975 and its products have graced the noses of some of the most celebrated - and also infamous - names in history. 

To mark the Rio Olympics Oakley has delved deep into its archives and found the green colourway it used for its first performance product in 1980. It then hand-sprayed this green onto eight of its most popular designs. 

The limited Green Fade collection is available in select outlets worldwide.

The EVZero version incorporates a new dual-iridium lens coating from Oakley that incorporates two Prizm lens tints.
