Oakley has always been ahead of the times and in 2000, it equipped four-time medallist Ato Boldon with one of its most innovative eyewear designs ever, the OVERTHETOP. The sprinter immediately made headlines and it quickly became one of the most memorable images of the games and a historic moment for the brand. The stem-less frame is being released in a new limited edition, manufactured from the original mold used in 2000 and each one was built entirely at Oakley's HQ in Foothill Ranch, California. The Precious Mettle OVERTHETOP is finished in a gradient color treatment that fades from gold to silver to bronze, in honor of the now postponed 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo.
The OVERTHETOP will be released on August 7th in a limited run of 20 pieces and it will be the last run from the original tool.
