In remembrance of 9/11, Oakley® Standard Issue™ is launching a two-piece, limited-edition Never Forget collection featuring custom artwork inspired by the Twin Towers. The Never Forget symbol printed on the eyewear stands as a powerful reminder that the nation will always remember the ultimate sacrifice so many brave individuals made on this day and ever since.
With families and communities still dealing with the effects of these events, Oakley SI is proud to support the Tunnel to Towers Foundation with a $25,000 donation. Founded 20 years ago in memory of firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life on September 11, 2001, Tunnel to Towers’ mission is to ‘honor our Military and First Responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country.’
“This year marks the 20th anniversary of the events of September 11th, 2001, a day that changed history and affected so many lives.” said Erick Poston, Senior Director of Oakley SI. “This collection is our way of honoring the sacrifices made by so many and to confirm we will never forget. This day is important to so many members of the OSI Family and we are Honored to incorporate this patriotic design into our Oakley SI eyewear collection.”
The popular OSI Gascan and OSI Holbrook models are both available with the iconic 9/11 memorial artwork to show respect and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This symbol of patriotism stands to remember and continue to support those affected by September 11, 2001.
