Oakley Ernesto Fonseca Signature Series Antix Sunglasses
On March 7, 2006 an accident left champion pro-rider Ernie Fonseco paralyzed from the chest down. Ernie has always been a fan of Japanese design and style, so he had an artist friend blend them into the koi fish design -- shown on the Oakley Ernesto Fonseca Signature Series Antix Sunglasses --a symbol for strength, endurance and perseverance in the face of adversity. Ernestos signature is laser etched near the edge of the single continuous lens, and the optics take advantage of POLARIC ELLIPSOID geometry for clarity that extends all the way to your peripheral view. Oakley will donate 5% of the wholesale price to the Next Steps Foundation. Its an organization that assists in providing funding for the prevention, treatment and cure of paralysis. On top of that, Oakley will provide an additional 5% from the wholesale price to help support Ernestos recovery. We are honored to assist the foundation while saluting the achievements and iron will of the famed SX/MX rider.

The Oakley Antix frame is really nice comfortable frame to wear. I am Japanese and love the fact that Ernesto had his friend design the Koi Fish on the stems of the frame. These are the most beautifully painted Oakley frames I have ever seen. I also love Ernesto's favorite colors were red, white, and black. The Antix frame really was a great choice to use for signature series. I have a strong connection with these sunglasses, and the koi fish design signifying perseverance, determination, and the will to fight adversity, very true traits of the Japanese. These are very very special to me and I will take great care of these sunglasses.
