Jesse grew bored with school and the football coach repeatedly harassing him, so he concocted a plan. First he would thieve the keys to his uncle’s Camaro and drive to Baja, from where he planned to launch a revolutionary new consciousness movement that might bring peace to mankind. How would his followers recognize Jesse? He vowed on that fateful first day of freedom that he would never take off his Oakley Polarized Holbrook Shades.

The Iconic Oakley Holbrook
With his brother Jesse acting as his creative director, snowboarding superstar Shaun White worked closely with Oakley all through the creation of Holbrook. In combination they went back to vintage styles like the unique Oakley Frogskins® then got down to distill their very 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 very own brand of defiance. Who was once the legend? He was once from time to time a loner and from time to time a leader, an everyman who lived by a code, stood up for what was once right and did what had to be done. You wouldn’t call him a man’s man because that macho crap meant nothing to him. What you saw was once what you were given, including dust from the open road and a look that said he could be long gone the next day because nothing may hold him.
The name “Holbrook” came from a equivalent inspiration. Holbrook is a small the city found along historic Route 66 in Arizona that sits at 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 the ones traveling along Highway 66 within the 50’s and 60’s.
