There’s the bad, the mad and all that’s great in Oakley’s polarized Madman™ and Badman™ sunglasses from their renowned X-Metal® collection. The two new men’s sunglass models have finally arrived in the market, following a highly successful US debut.
As with all models of the X-Metal collection, Madman and Badman carry the industrial design language and durability that distinguishes Oakley sunglasses. Innovative design coupled with cutting-edge materials like lightweight diecast aluminium with O Matter™, a durable stress-resistant frame material, highlight the Madman and Badman models.
High Definition Optics® is also integrated into Oakley sunglasses. This is a group of patented technologies that allow Oakley eyewear to meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute for optical clarity, visual fidelity, and impact resistance.
Both sunglasses feature Plutonite® Lens, one of the best materials for optical purity and clarity in eyewear today. They filter out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light, with UV protection derived from the lens material itself, and not just from a coating. Oakley HDPolarized® lenses further contribute to sun protection by filtering 99% of reflected glare without the haze and optical distortion that can come with polarized lenses made with conventional manufacturing techniques.
Aside from sun protection, Oakley performance eyewear is renowned for protection against high-velocity and high-mass impact. This can be attributed to the unique architecture and advanced premium materials used for Oakley lens and frame combinations.
And then of course, there’s the Oakley-registered Unobtainium, a soft hydrophilic synthetic material that increases adhesion when wet. Used for earsocks and nose pads, this makes the frame grip better when a wearer perspires.
All these innovations would be for naught without Oakley’s unique design aesthetic evident in the new Madman and Badman sunglasses.
Madman gives off a frenetic energy with its roundish lenses, while Badman is its lighter but no less crazy good cousin with a slightly different silhouette.
“No other eyewear brand comes near in design and innovation with Oakley,” said Carlo Dionisio, Marketing Manager of Factory Pilot for Oakley in the Philippines. “Madman and Badman also come in Ferrari limited edition variants so we invite enthusiasts to check out these new Oakley sunglasses now, while they’re available.”
Musicians Kessenth Cheng and Oakley brand ambassador Jay Ortega presented these new editions with a special performance to launch Madman and Badman in the Philippines.
