However, sturdiness is not the only defining aspect. The luxury sunglasses brand continues its legacy of reinventing and pioneering eyewear technology. Just consider the first ever goggles with a ventilation system that Smith Optics introduced during the latter half of 1979. The constant air management system used here was an eye-opener for competing brands, giving them a reality check about the scope of innovation in this segment.
Smith Optics uses polarized lenses among many of its sunglasses. This ensures the best in protection from glare and harmful rays of the sun. The luxury label has been a constant innovator, credited with many patents, including a design that features an industry-first quick release lens system. Expect some typically outdoorsy sunglasses in any collection from Smith Optics. This is also the result of Smith Optics being a cross-performer, designing and manufacturing adventure and hiking gear like ski and bike helmets along with apparels and accessories including protective cases, sleeves and goggle straps.
