Beyond the skyscrapers and glitter of Downtown, nestled between two one-way avenues, you'll find a mighty little neighborhood that is home to countless events that changed the course of history. Four of these events come to life in our Oakland model. The aviator style pays homage to Samuel Langley, who the Wright brothers narrowly beat out in the race to the first manned flight. The introduction to our first metal frames make a nod to the steel structure of the great Cathedral of Learning, the second-tallest building of education in the world. The wooden temples are to remind us of the magic of Bill Mazeroski's wooden bat to clinch the 1960 World Series title for our Buccos. And finally, the blue, mirror lenses reflect the Pitt Panther passion that has pulsed through this neighborhood since 1909. With a story like that, these Shades will be a conversation starter for any strong, silent type in your life.
