    The Blade™ III Boardshort is infused with Oakley technology, designed to give you the tools to always surf your best.

    • Blade™ III technology:
      1. Hydrofuse™ bonds fabric seams with pressure and heat to create the lightest, flattest seams possible. Hydrofuse™ bonding preserves stretch properties of the fabric allowing the wearer to move freely.
      2. Hydrofree Plus is the most resilient water-repellent treatment Oakley has ever engineered.
      3. O Stretch Ripstop is a four-way stretch textile with unparalleled performance offers less abrasion and greater freedom of movement.
      4. Flow-through mesh panels allow water to move freely through the short and helps minimize ballooning to keep the fit low profile.
      5. Welded tie tabs and eyelets eliminates bulk.
      6. The Stretch fly design utilizes a thin layer of LYCRA® to keep the short lightweight.

Among the many surf-style clothing companies, Oakley™ is becoming increasingly well-known for their men's and women's clothing, Oakley board shorts, Oakley sandals and Oakley backpacks. Oakley combines technology with art to make their products the most appealing on multiple levels. They claim that "Mad Science" drives them to find problems, create revolutionary solutions and package the finished product in eye-catching art.

Centered in Orange County, California, Oakley headquarters looks like a space station. In the Oakley research labs, over 600 patents have been awarded which have increased comfort, style and use. Take a pair of Oakley sandals for example. Its product description has an unbelievable amount of technology: Compression molded footbed with foam and laser-etched graphics for traction, Unobtanium® rubber for durability and Microban® antibacterial material to kill bacteria. It sounds more like an astronaut's boot than an affordable Oakley sandal.

The surfing world needs surfing fashion that can withstand the rigorous waters without compromising style. And with Oakley's technical achievements, the science fiction world meets the sporting world. Now, Oakley is worn in over 110 countries by surfers, beach goers, pool people and anyone who loves water sports. Oakley's line of board shorts, bikinis, one-piece swimsuits and sandals have the best mix of technology and style.
