What community has to say
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Got these as a christmas gift for my brother. To say the least, he was stoked on how they fit and how they looked! Great looking and performing shades.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got a pair of these in the non polarized and polarized versions. I thought I would try them out for casual sunglasses and compare them to my Revo's. In the end I think they are cool and stylish, but the lens quality in both the pol and nonpol versions is horrendous. If you are looking to look cool then this is your glasses, but put on a pair of Revo and or Maui Jim's right after these and you will then know what I am talking about. You can't beat a crystalline lens with a plastic lens. Aside from that they are light and you can put pretty much any lens in them you want. In the end If I am going to spend over 100 for sunglasses I want to get what I pay for.

Excellent sunglasses, great fit, super comfortable and fashionable! I highly recommend them! the polarized is amazing.

I love Frogskins. Great fit, lightweight, super durable and fantastic optical quality. They are great for any activity, but I particularly love them for snowboarding since they reduce glare without blocking out too much light. Perfect for tree runs on a sunny day or any situation where you are transitioning rapidly between bright sun and shade.
If you are looking for a high mirror finish go with the irradium lenses, the standard gray polarized lenses ar not as mirrored and seem to be a bit more translucent.
Awesome glasses. Fit a medium-smaller face. if you have a big dome then I would discourage you from getting them. Fit my face well and stay put. as was said, definitely all style and less versatility. The glasses on the side and top outside corner let a lot of light in. I wear the polarized ones fishing all the time and the lenses do great. if I wear a hat then the light doesn't create a glare on the inside. Over all they are rad, and they work.
Great sunglasses, very light, stay on during all sorts of activity and look great also. I am vewry pleased with these glasses.
Some people trash the frogs for being to expensive for the quality. To bad these are some of the nicest shades i've ever owned. YES!!! They are a very light pair of shades. How this means they're cheap is beyond me. I dont need a solid piece of steel on my face to feel like i spent my money well. The fit is perfect. Ever buy some cheap sunglasses that never seem to stay level on your face? Well do not worry as long you have a pretty symmetrical face your frogs will stay level. Also my frogs seem to grip my head just perfectly to stay on while I do my business, whether it's going to the store or passing lacrosse. One more upside these babys are made in amurica so it helps support uhmerican jobs and stuff. (really though its nice that Oakley still makes their stuff in the states)
Overall the Frogskins are a cool stylish pair of shades that are very well made. Just remember they're not indestructible
For being a high-end sunglasses company, Oakley finally got these right and have made them good over and over again. If they could try to change them i would be very mad. What ever you do don't buy other ones by the original. GET THEM SON!

How can we figure that we've purchased the original oakley?
coolest sunglasses ever!
Frogskins are hands down the coolest shades around. I had ones that got stolen, bought them again, that's how passionate i am about them. There's not a time i wear it that people don't want to try them on.
I have the white frame with ruby iridium lenses.
It actually sucks that frogskins are being offered on dogfunk
For many years the coolest part about frogskins was their demand. They weren't offered or distributed to all sunglass shops. At the early stage of the "limited supply" reissues, boutique shops sold dead-stock and sample early releases. Then the polarized, firmer, better built throwback versions came out and the demand stayed on a "need to know" basis. I knew one shop in Boston that sold FS's and I can admit i went an entire year - four seasons - with never seeing a single pair, aside from a green/clear/yellow lens classic pair some snowboarder chick had. That luster has worn off, I still love my "reissues" yeah they are polarized, yeah, they are light and delicate to the touch, but a little care and some pride? you have yourself a pair of shades. just dont buy them from here, go to your local shop and see what they can do for Chr*st sake
I'm Japanese, so it's hard for me to find a well-fitting pair of sunglasses. I've tried so many brands like Smith, Anon, Native and Ray Ban... but nothing compared to the comfort of my Frogskins. These sunglasses don't weigh a thing either... unfortunately,this is the very reason I lost mine!! :(
I was hiking around the local crag to go climb, and I must have taken a hard step and they slid off my head and into a little crevice that I couldn't get to! Haha, of course this is all my fault, but it'd be maybe nicer if the inside of the arms had something a little more sticky.
Overall, the best pair of sunglasses I had ever owned.
Do these fold? the comment about the arms...
Do these fold? the comment about the arms popping off has me confused i think...
ya they fold like normal;
they pop off if you push the arms to far out
Light retro frames
Many people pick up a pair of frogs and automatically comment that they feel cheap. This comment seems to be due to how light these are. Since the Frogskin is more slim lined than a pair of Rayban Wayfarers, it is lighter. This is a good thing though. It feels like you have nothing on your face. Couple this with high end Oakley optics, and you have a super light, high end pair of shades. Of course these have good style too. Some people have said that these can't be used for active use. I've snowboarded with them plenty of times and never had a problem with them flying off or getting heavy wind drafts, across my eyes. I am sure there are other Oakleys that wrap better, but they probably weigh more than these.
Fit wise, I think these are similar to a size L rayban wayfarer frame. If you have a bigger head, these rule.
king of the hill
this is the coolest thing I have ever bought! the retro 80's look just make Frogskins complete.
I have the Rootbeer color, and when I put them on. you can even enjoy watching the sun...
the best sunglasses money can buy
good style, not much else
First off, I love the Frogskins. Oakley's Frogskins have always been, and still are, one of the more sought after fashion accessories. But the Frogskins are fashion accessories, and not much else. The re-released frogskins were never intended to be anything other than streetwear. If you need something for sports/want something that will really stick to your face, go with almost any other Oakley sunglass (the Jupiter is a great Frogskins alternative). I give the Frogskins 4 stars only because there are little things that Oakley could do to improve the shades, such as narrowing the mold, beefing up the hinges, and spicing up the more recent colorways.
These ones are polarized, and Oakley polarization is AWESOME. Trust me.
Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses - Polarized
Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses - Polarized, These are great, the lenses are so great, I got the black/grey and it is just the right tint on the lens, the polarization is key. They are super lightweight and the legs pop on and off to avoid breaking! Great for activities.
So much steeze
I just love my frogskins. Just great sunglasses, love the retro 80s look. I love how light and comfy they are, i usually forget that im wearing them. Plus they are way cooler than ray bans.
