Extreme Sorts

Radical sport eyewear (venting, mirrored-to-purpose, aero-designed, gripping just right) works equally well on the street. Never discreet, it always competes especially when sized just right to a wearer’s face as is this perfectly ready Rudy.

Red, Right and Blue

Sport literally invented bold frame colors (and lens colorations with specific performance purposes for that matter) in eyewear. Fashion followed suit but sport STILL inspires while runway usually aspires. So if you are looking to stay ahead of trend, keep an eye on the athletic arena. They know well ahead when the newest hue is about to hit.

Remember to Gloss

When all is said (and seen!) and done, nothing says classic sport sun like a highly glossed black frame with a semi-rimless minimalist form for function.

Flats Entertainment

Matte and burnished are the hottest situations in frame textures these days, and when it’s mated up with a flashy mirror lens treatment, the sport-on-the-street scene MUST be seen. Just proves that game-face needs a spot on the competition zone AND in the stylish “street/play” zone.
