Oakley Fives Squared Sunglasses - The Ultimate Guide (2024)

A complete review of the Oakley Fives Squared Sunglasses with everything to know about this iconic frame!

Background and History

The first Fives design was released back in 1997. Part of the Lifestyle line, Fives were designed to fit and flatter smaller faces. Over the years, the Oakley Fives line expanded to its current size of six different frames. Each new iteration features new designs, materials, or size alternatives. However across all the variations, the Fives family sticks to designs focused on small heads.

This continues to be true for the ever-popular Oakley Fives Squared. Released in 2008, the Fives Squared changed very little from the Fives 3.0, with only a few slight cosmetic changes. But the design was and continues to be a hit.

Oakley Fives Squared Sunglasses Overview

Frame and Design

Oakley Fives Squared sunglasses feature a full O-Matter frame with a distinct rectangular shape. Like all Fives, the Fives Squared is designed to fit and complement a small face. The frames do not extend out at the sides, creating a rounded, sleek appearance. This is perfect for smaller heads where other sunglasses may jet out and look awkward.

The ear stems on the Fives Squared are also curved to fit the face. They’re wide near the frame and taper down toward the ear, with a very slight flare at the end. Oakley also took this opportunity to redesign their metal icon in a square shape matching the frames overall look.

In 2013, Oakley updated the Fives Squared to add an unobtanium nosepiece for added grip. This was in response to the glasses sliding when they got sweaty or wet.

It’s also key to note that Fives Squared sunglasses are often marketed to either men or women specifically, but it’s a unisex design. There is no difference between men’s and women’s frames.

Lenses

The Oakley Fives Squared sunglasses feature Plutonite lenses that offer impact resistance and XYZ Optics for great clarity. Oakley Fives Squared are available with polarized, iridium coated, and prescription lenses. We’ve also seen the Fives Squared with Prizm lenses through the Exclusive Military Standard Issue Program.

Since there are six different iterations of Oakley Fives, if you’re ordering replacement lenses, be sure they will fit the Fives Squared (both Fives 3.0 and Fives Squared lenses will fit).

Final Thoughts

Oakley Fives Squared sunglasses are a longstanding Oakley frame. Designed to fit smaller faces, they’re sleek and modern with enough character to make them stand out a little in the crowd.
