Oakley Katos by Mutaz Essa Barshim
And while we’re still talking about Oakley, we can’t get past what could be the most stylish sport in the Olympics – high jump.
So far, the sartorial star of the event is expected to be the pair of Oakley Kato sunglasses that Barshim wore throughout the nightly competition. These weren’t exactly functional (it was, of course, dark), and shadows flew from his face pretty much every time he crossed the bar, but when the sci-fi objectives reflected the stripes of his Qatari Olympic uniform, it was all worth it.
âIt’s okay,â he said after snapping off the pair he wore moments after their post-gold hug. “I have about 50 pairs.”

But it was also the style and flair of the Olympian in the stadium, winning gold for the coolest specs to date – these technicolor shield sunglasses (which we don’t know the brand of, but give us major vibrations of Pit Viper).
âOne of my things is that everyone during the shot put, and I don’t know why, people are always smiling and talking. It’s not really me,â Saunders said of his look. , according to the Washington Post. “It’s my way of being friendly, I guess?” “

While Ray Bassil’s Delarios dominate
On the shooting arena, the Italian DE.LA.RO sunglasses dominate, worn by the Lebanese athlete Ray Bassil, and recognizable by the enormous branding that stands out on the sides. While these are made especially for filming, I wouldn’t be surprised if they popped up on the streets during post-covid fashion week.
