Wow. I totally underestimated how nice this piece is. From photos that Oakley released, it looks slightly dull but in the flesh, oh my gosh… its really really good looking. Matte Black, with dark green accents, Ryan Sheckler Garage Rock color combination is just sublime.
And photos just don’t do it justice. Especially when you wear it out in the sun, that combination just pops.
As expected, the construction is top notch Oakley Garage Rock quality. The lenses are the same, with dark grey tint that would handle the asian sun with ease, whether out in full glare, or under the shade sipping cappuccino. Here’s the basic information for this piece:
- RYAN SHECKLER SIGNATURE SERIES GARAGE ROCK™
- SKU# OO9175-25

Here’s the write out from Oakley.com
RYAN SHECKLER SIGNATURE SERIES GARAGE ROCK SUNGLASSES
Picture yourself stepping onto your first skateboard at the age of 18 months. By the time you reach 7, you’ve got a mini-ramp in your backyard, and you earn your first X-Games gold by 13. Today you’re living loud and inspiring a generation, and that’s when you’re not busy dropping a heavy hammer of tricks. That’s the story of Oakley’s Ryan Sheckler, and we’re tossing him a big salute with this Signature Series design.
Ryan’s tattoos inspired the art on this Oakley original. The anchor pays tribute to his hometown of San Clemente, California while the eagle signifies courage. We hit the earstems with a mix of those graphics, along with the words “Strength and Honor” from his chest ink. Colors in the print designs get riffed in the icons and hinge accents, and a custom Microclear™ bag is included for lens cleaning and frame storage.
Oakley Garage Rock™ salutes the ’60s with metal detailing inspired by electric guitars. We maxed out clarity with High Definition Optics® (HDO®) and made sure comfort was an all-day thing by crafting the frame with lightweight O Matter®. Polished Black was the perfect pick for the color of this sunglass. It’s matched with Dark Grey lenses that scoff at blinding sunlight, and they’re tuned to help you maintain color recognition. Put it all together and you’ve got a look that follows its own lead, just like Shecks.
