Well, maybe. US Olympic track star Mark Everett sported this e7xotic eyewear at practice last week in Sydney, Australia. It's yet another case of "product placement," we figured, intended to give a new line of sports sunglasses some exposure.
A little sleuthing confirmed it: Foothill Ranch, Calif.-based Oakley takes credit for the offbeat new shades. The style is called "Over the Top." When they are made available to consumers in November, they'll cost $180 - and will probably work best with the hair style favored by Mr. Everett, in our opinion.
