Fernando Alonso - Oakley Jupiter Squared Sunglasses

Double Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso has been spotted wearing all sorts of flashy sunglasses over the years. Alonso seems to be a big fan of the bright colours or statement sunglasses.

It's hard to believe that the Ferrari driver only signed up as an Oakley athlete in the Summer of 2011. Since then, Fernando Alonso has been seen wearing Oakley's staple sunglasses models such as Fuel Cell and Holbrook.

During the 2012 season Alonso's sunglasses of choice have been the Oakley Jupiter Squared in various colours. I don't really blame him though, I've tried these on myself and found them to be very comfortable; in fact these may be my next sunglasses purchase.

These photos were snapped earlier this year at the Malaysian GP where Alonso picked up his first win of the season.

The model here is the Jupiter Squared OO9135-08 in colour Matte White with Black Iridium Polarized lenses available from Select Specs. The Iridium coating gives these lenses the mirrored effect. Very cool.

I don't know about you, but I think these other colour options look pretty cool too.
