Oakley was started by James Jannard in 1975 out of his garage with an initial investment of $300. The name "Oakley" came from Jim's English Setter, "Oakley Anne." Jannard began by selling what he called 'The Oakley Grip' out of the back of his car at motocross events. His motorcycle grips were unlike other grips available at the time, using a trademarked material. The material is still used to make the earsocks on Oakley glasses, and many of the nose pieces and now the bands of their watches. Come check out our Oakley sunglasses and glasses frames. We have the best selection of Oakley in Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon, Breckenridge, and all of Summit County.
In 1929, an Army Air Corp Col partnered with a company called Bausch & Lomb to create a pair of glasses that would help pilots with the intense blue and white lights of the sky. The prototype, made in 1936 had an anti-glare green lens that was also impact resistant. Ray Ban became well known for this Aviator frame and later for their Wayfair.

The company was founded by Ben and Laura Harrison and inspired by the birth of their son, Jonas Paul. Jonas was born with a rare disorder, Peter’s Anomaly, that caused opacified corneas and glaucoma. Despite being blind at birth, Jonas Paul now has low vision thanks to 21 surgeries and the dedication of his loving parents. As Ben and Laura searched for fashionable eyeglasses for their son, they grew increasingly frustrated at the limited options for children. The Harrisons decided to leave their careers to launch Jonas Paul Eyewear with the mission of helping children feel beautiful in their glasses and providing sight to children in need with every purchase.

Article One was founded to raise awareness and funding for Vitamin A deficiency in developing nations.
Most people are unaware that about 500,000 children globally go blind each year from Vitamin A deficiency, and half of those children die within 12 months as a result of Vitamin A deficiency. Even more astounding, it costs just one dollar for a year’s worth of supplements for one child. That means a one dollar donation to Helen Keller International will ensure at least one child will not die or go blind from vitamin A deficiency.
Article One has donated over $17,000 to Helen Keller International's vitamin A supplementation program thus far.
