Making sunglasses for action heroes is a niche market, but someone’s got to fill it. Enter Blinde Eyewear, the label that has designed shades for everyone from Angelina Jolie in <i>Lara Croft: Tomb Raider</i> to Keanu Reeves and his posse in <i>The Matrix</i> — not to mention the many off-duty superheroes lurking about Hollywood. Blinde Eyewear’s collection isn’t solely reserved for big-screen brawny types, however: modern-retro styles like the In Cahoots and the Bagel are super-stylish yet accessible, while many frames feature streamlined, subtle shapes. Founded by Richard Walker and Troy Schmidt, Blinde makes its glasses and sunglasses by hand; features such as beta-titanium core wire and seven-barrel, six-pin stainless steel hinges give each pair superior flexibility and durability. You might not be an action hero (yet), but that doesn't mean you shouldn't see the world through an action hero's specs.
Some take their sunglass inspiration from Tom Cruise in Risky Business, while others’ tastes skew toward Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. This sale is for those in the latter category—literally. The guys behind Blinde have designed shades for a slew of action heroes, including Neo himself. This sale features a stylish selection of over-sized aviators, wrap around frames, and more.
A favorite among Hollywood and fashion insiders, Blinde Eyewear’s collection offers myriad of-the-moment styles—both sunglasses and prescription-ready frames are in the mix. In our sale: 70 pairs of glasses that run the gamut from nerd-chic to downtown cool-kid. The vintage-feeling Road to Ruins and Lights Out sunglasses in tortoiseshell and black, respectively, are two of our favorites.
