I’ve a definite reminiscence of myself in highschool, trying puzzlingly on the baseball crew as a result of each single participant had on the identical blue- or red-lens Oakley (or Oakley look-alike) sunglasses, as in the event that they had been an official a part of their uniform. Oversize, shield-like, and sporty—the latter of which I am not—the model made no sense to me aesthetically. That’s, till now. Ten years later, those self same aerodynamic shades are all I wish to put on.
It began after I got down to discover a pair of efficiency sunglasses to run on this summer time and stumbled throughout a pair of matte black shades on a type of spinning racks at Duane Reade. (You realize those.) At $13 a pop, I could not assist myself. Earlier than lengthy, I started carrying them for extra than simply morning jogs, styling them with on a regular basis outfits and even wearing them throughout NYFW. And apparently, I am not the one one taking an curiosity in efficiency eyewear.
Forward, see for your self the rising curiosity in sporty sun shades, and store an array that ranges from Balenciaga and Bottega Veneda to Ray-Ban and District Imaginative and prescient.
