Oakley is a well-known company that specialises in brand name products, such as apparel, footwear, goggles, prescription eyewear and sunglasses. It is easy to purchase a pair of Oakley sunglasses at the company's website or from other online merchants. Unfortunately, there are merchants who sell fake Oakley sunglasses instead of the genuine ones. You can protect yourself from being exploited by knowing how to differentiate between the real ones and the fake ones.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Look for the Oakley brand name on the lens. Fake Oakley sunglasses usually have the brand name screen printed on the lens, while the genuine ones have the name "Oakley" etched into the lens of the sunglasses.

  2. 2

    Look for stickers on the fake Oakley sunglasses. Fake Oakley sunglasses usually have a sticker on the bottom section of the lens. The sticker normally have the words "Genuine Oakley" on the sunglasses. Authentic Oakley sunglasses don't have stickers on them, unless they are from a reputable optometrist.

  3. 3

    Inspect the arms on the fake Oakley sunglasses for lettering that is painted on. The authentic Oakley sunglasses have raised lettering embedded into the arms, except for the Frogskins models.

  4. 4

    Feel the nose piece on the sunglasses. Fake Oakley sunglasses feel hard and smooth, while the genuine ones feel soft and sticky.

Tips and warnings
