Shuron ‘Freeway’ Sunglasses

Mentre il frame dell’occhiale potrebbe risultare famigliare, probabilmente il nome del barnd non lo è altrettanto, eppure gli americani di Shuron producono occhiali dal 1865.

Having been quietly plying their trade since 1865, Shuron make some of the best looking sunglasses around, and take their name from their old Pinch-Nez glasses, which were known as Sure-On. Still made in the USA, they focus on classic styles, and many of their designs haven’t changed in over fifty years, in fact, in the fifties and sixties their Ronsir Zyl frame was the most popular frame in the USA, accounting for more than half of the glasses sold. As well as civvy-gear, Shuron also provided glasses for US soldiers in WW2.

Il Freeway che vi mostriamo qui è uno dei modelli più classici e popolari del marchio – specialmente verso la metà dei ’50, dai banchieri a Malcom X – riproposto ora anche con montatura in acetato marrone e lenti verdi. Made in the USA. Da poco online da OiPolloi.
