GEAR UP FOR TYPE 1 FUN
Yes, our premium sunglasses will make you look effortlessly cool. And yes, they can still be your sports sunglasses! Like all of our shades, these premium metal frame sunglasses are as functional as they are fashionable. Here’s why the word premium applies to more than just the look of this collection:
Each pair of our premium metal frame sunglasses comes with polarized lenses for full color clarity and glare reduction. They’re super lightweight, and super durable. Extra bonus: they’re made with the earth in mind. All of our frames are made from recycled materials.
Usually, with sunglasses this classy, you spend the day worrying that they’ll get scratched or bent, that they’ll fall off and you’ll lose them. You’d probably reserve your pair of ‘nice’ sunglasses for special outings. You’d probably not wear them while mountain biking or kite-surfing. But with Sunskis, you can have the best of both worlds. Our premium metal frame sunglasses are as durable and outdoor ready as any of our other specs. Plus, we offer an affordable price point and a forever warranty. If your lenses scratch, we’ll send replacement lenses. If the sunglasses break during your outdoor excursion, we’ll fix them or send you a new pair, guaranteed.
This member of our premium collection offers a classic aviator frame with high to medium coverage. The frames are made from a hybrid of electroplated stainless steel and our classic recycled plastic. The sculpted surfaces give you maximum comfort for your trip to the grocery store, or your trip to Europe.
The Astra will look best on pilots, motorcycle riders, or tough-guy and gals. Just kidding--the aviator frame is great for anyone who needs a higher coverage lens, and who is dealing with high glare or highly reflective environments. This includes fly fishers, alpine snow sports enthusiasts, or even road cyclists.
The tear-drop shaped lenses work especially well with angular or broader face shapes. So, diamond, square, or heart shaped faced-people, this one’s for you. If you don’t know what the heck we’re talking about, check out this guide for the best sunglasses for your face shape.
The next pair of premium sunglasses, the Bernina, might just be the coolest metal frame sunglasses we make. The style comes in 2 color options to match the mood of the day--Black Slate and Caramel Forest. Its geometric lenses have an understated flashiness, but they’re suave as heck. The lightweight arms have thoughtfully designed metal accents, and the hinges are made of stainless steel for long term durability.
The light-blocking mini side panels are our favorite part of the Berninas (besides their unique shape, comfortable fit, and polarized lenses... we could go on.) The side panels are ventilated and just the right size to keep the setting sun from sneaking into your eyes as you stroll down the boulevard or ski across the trail. They’ll block the sun, but not your peripheral vision.
The Baias are the newest addition to the Premium family, but are already making a name for themselves in our Sunski community. These metal frame sunglasses put a modern spin on the classic P3 frames from the 60s made famous by John Lennon. The timeless Baia uses an exoskeleton metal frame paired with sculpted and organic surfaces which ensures a perfect fit. Coming in both Champagne Amber and Copper Forest, the Baia exudes an effortless look that will never go out of style.
Premium Protection, No Premium Price Tag
From the sophistication and quality construction of this collection, you’d assume that they come at a million dollar price tag. Lucky for you, you’d assume wrong. Our company was founded on the dirtbag adventurer spirit, so we know that outdoor gear needs to be durable and affordable. With all of our premium sunglasses coming in under $100, they’re accessible to all kinds of outdoorsy folks, from vanlifers to couch-surfing world travelers.
