Outfitter: Sunglasses

Protect your eyes with these nine shades.
posted: 01/27/2009

Giro Splitter
If you trust Giro to protect your head, it’s safe to assume they’ll do the same for your eyes. The Splitter wraps your face’s contours and stashes easily into a pocket when the weather changes. ($89; giro.com)

Zeal Optics Entice
Zeal positions these as women’s glasses, but the men in our office put them on and said, “Pass the Ecstasy.” They also liked the big polarized lens, the lightweight frames, and the grippy rubberized earpieces. ($110; zealoptics.com)

Dragon Alliance Wormser
Kanye wears shutter shades, but if you’d rather see, the Wormsers work fine. Ski in ’em or wear ’em to your next MTV Jams appearance. ($70; dragonalliance.com)

Rudy Project SunCreek
Known for super-techie endurance-sport glasses, Rudy Project also has a big lifestyle line. The chubby SunCreek has great clarity and comfort and is available with photochromic and polarized lens options. ($139; e-rudy.com)

Smith Optics Prophet
The idea of interchangeable lenses is great, but they usually come with a techie look. Not these. The Prophet’s sleek new locking frames come with three sets of polarized lenses. ($149; smithoptics.com)

Optic Nerve Kingspade
Cracked frames and permanent smudges make Mom’s ’80s Scotts near-impossible to wear. Optic Nerve’s throwback Kingspade has thick white frames and just enough fluorescent pink. ($49; nerveusa.com)

Bollé Slap
With names like Slap, Tease, and Whip, Bollé’s designer line has some weird S&M thing going on. The Slap is flexible, lightweight, and good for narrow faces. ($99; bolle.com)

Spy Optic Haymaker
All noses are not created equal, which is why the Haymaker’s nose pads are adjustable. Designed by pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek, these huge glasses have enough coverage for sunny days and bad hangovers. ($135; spyoptic.com)
