A question we often hear at FramesDirect.com is “Where are Oakleys made?”
Before 2007, an identifying mark of genuine Oakleys was a “Made in USA” stamp etched on the inside of the temple. But when Oakley was acquired by Luxottica, some styles started being manufactured in other facilities around the world.
Oakley still strongly identifies as an American brand since their products are designed and engineered in California at their headquarters in Foothill Ranch, California (which is famous for its architecture.) But now many (genuine) Oakley products are manufactured in China.
