Shield sunglasses are designed for those who are serious about their sport, who don’t take losing lightly and will do everything in their power to make sure they have that winning edge. If you are one of those people then Eye For Sunglasses is here to help you with our fantastic range of shield sunglasses.
In their design, shield sunglasses are designed to protect more of the eye, how they do this is two fold. Firstly they are made in a wrap around shape, which allows the lens to run flat across the natural curve of the face, thus limiting the amount of light that can reach the eye without passing through the lens. The shape closes the gap around the side of the eye, thereby preventing light from entering through there and giving you all round 100% UV protection.
Secondly, shield sunglasses have bigger lenses, again increasing the protection across the general area of the eye socket and providing the eye and parts of the face with shielding from sunlight, dust and debris that could hinder performance.
All sunglasses in the shield range apart from the Dirty Dog Sport Pipe and the Bolle Essence (which have a full frame and no frame respectively) feature an innovative top rim only design. This means that lower vision is not obstructed by the rim, which can be an annoyance in the peripherals, making them ideal protective eye wear for ball sports enthusiasts. For those looking for reduced peripheral rim obstruction, look at the Bolle Essence that abolishes the frame entirely or the Bolle Vortex, that incorporates one solid lens piece much like a skiers goggle.
Reduced rim means reduced weight, so all these sunglasses are extremely effortless to wear and won’t be a hindrance to your sport. To ensure they stay griped to the face, all sunglasses in the range have big, comfortable nose grips and rubber grips on the arms.
