Why mirrored sunglasses?
There's so much more than meets the eye when it comes to mirrored sunglasses.
This design, which involves coating the lenses with a reflective layer, giving them the impression of a small mirror, is a popular combination with all types of sunglasses. From your standard wayfarers to your celebrity crush's retro half-frame to a world-class mountaineer's aviators, mirrored sunglasses are applicable to all types of situations and people.
There's a reason why this style resonates with both those in-the-know about trendy fashion and the everyday person who just wants some quality shades. The mirrors provide privacy and mystique when you don these sunglasses. Though they are certainly credible with pop-culture figures and fashion icons, people buy reflective sunglasses for a multitude of reasons. Of course, they do look stylish and mysterious, but when you're looking to pick one off the shelf, you may ask yourself, "Is this look still practical?"
The answer is a resounding yes.
Keep your cool outside
Mirrored sunglasses help reduce glare, and there is probably no better choice of eyewear if you're going to be out in the elements for a while. If you're driving, think how annoying it is when you're blinded by the light reflecting from other cars or buildings. Or, if you're in the mountains, you can use reflective shades to deflect the snow's glare. While they dramatically help with glare, reflective glasses actually brighten your vision at the same time. Yes, we know how odd and counterintuitive that sounds. Because the lenses reflect more light than they absorb, your vision stays clearer and higher quality than other non-reflective lenses.
To top it all off, reflective sunglasses are more durable than your average pair, as the extra coating on the lens provided a layer of protection against scratches. This is great news if you're active in the outdoors, as you can be sure you've got a sturdy pair of shades on your head.
Mirrored sunglasses for men
These types of shades offer a timeless blend of style and modern practicality. If you're out and about and need some serious protection for your eyes, look no further than our sports collection, headlined by the Taraval. With a large, square fit, it's guaranteed to keep your eyes shielded. At the end of the day, isn't that what we all want when it comes to our sunglasses? Something light but tough that enhances your vision yet designed so well hardly notice it.
Reflective sunglasses don't have to stick to the straight and narrow, however. If you want the more traditional frame with an unorthodox lens that still provides some privacy for your eyes, use the Original, a tried-and-true Sunski classic. Choose between a blue or green lens to spice it up.
