Smith Introduces 50th Anniversary Archive Collections for Sunglass and Snow

Smith Introduces 50th Anniversary Archive Collections for Sunglass and Snow

It all began in 1965 when Dr. Bob Smith started selling the first thermal sealed snow goggle out of his truck in parking lots of local ski areas. The legendary powder junkie had a vision to develop products that could extend the thrill of human experience. Standing behind the belief that if it’s worth building then it’s worth lasting, Smith continues to celebrate the past while always looking towards the future with its new Archive Collections of sunglasses and goggles for 2015/16. For January, Smith introduces three additional frame designs to the iconic Archive Collection, exact remakes of original Smith frames introduced over the last 36 years. Each re-issued piece is labeled with its debut year and offered in original colorways. The Questa, one of Smith’s most iconic and distinct frames, was originally introduced as part of Smith’s moto series in 1990. The unisex sunglass features a round lens shape with dual-toned face fronts and a retro-patterned design etched into the metal nose bridge. The feminine focused Rebel, circa 1988, has a subtle cat-eye shape and offers a mix of face fronts that combines metal eye wire with cellulose propionate material for a...

Smith Introduces XL Options for Lowdown and Outlier Sunglass Models

Smith Introduces XL Options for Lowdown and Outlier Sunglass Models

Bigger and bolder, Smith is launching XL size offerings this January for its popular Lowdown and Outlier sunglass models. Widely seen in the optical market, customers can now select styles based on design rather than be constrained by frame size. After releasing the popular Lowdown Slim last year for smaller face fits, the five-piece Lowdown Family now has a large coverage frame with the new Lowdown XL. The oversized eye wire, with traditional square lens shape, has been carefully considered to balance its scale with pantoscopic angle to ensure a superior fit for a broad range of faces. The lifestyle-driven design is style appropriate for large face shapes and equally as wearable as an oversized frame for fashion-conscious customers. Comprised of feather-light yet durable 53% bio-based Evolve™ frame material, the Lowdown XL is part of the largest eco-friendly sunglass collection in the world. The Lowdown XL also features anti-lock hinges and hydrophilic megol nose pads to keep the frame in place when introduced to sweat or moisture. Available in eight colorways with non-polarized and polarized Carbonic TLT lens options. Inspired by our best-selling Outlier sunglass, the new Outlier...
