With his brother Jesse acting as his creative director, snowboarding superstar Shaun White worked closely with Oakley during the creation of HOLBROOK. Together they went back to vintage styles like the original Oakley FROGSKINS then set out to distill their own vision of American cool. HOLBROOK is a timeless classic that echoes the screen heroes from the 1940s, 50s and 60s, the icons who inspired youth with their own brand of defiance. He was sometimes a loner and sometimes a leader, an everyman who lived by a code, stood up for what was right and did what needed to be done. You wouldn't call him a man's man because that macho crap meant nothing to him. What you saw was what you got, including dust from the open road and a look that said he might be gone tomorrow because nothing could hold him.
The name "HOLBROOK" came from a similar inspiration. HOLBROOK is a small town found along historic Route 66 in Arizona that sits on the outskirts of the painted desert and the petrified forest. It's a classic western badland that epitomizes a spirit of exploration and adventure found in those traveling along Highway 66 in the 50's and 60's.
Ducati Holbrook Nicky Hayden Signature Series Edition Sunglasses: If life tends to rip past you in a blur, you should see what it's like at 200 mph. That's the comfort zone of 2006 MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden. Oakley is honoring The Kentucky Kid with laser etching on the lens of this special edition Holbrook™. The frame is also a salute to Ducati, makers of machines that feed Nicky's need for speed, so we highlighted the metal icons and stem bands in Ducati red. Oakley Jupiter finds a fresh edge in vintage styling, and this Signature Series rendition is a tribute to Ducati heritage and a nod of respect to a racer who hits life with velocity. The Ducati Nicky Hayden Signature Edition has all of this plus the standard features of the Holbrook™.
