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.
Once in a great while, we wind up with some items that haven't found their way to a good home. It’s tragic, we know. But don't worry, there’s a silver lining.

There’s more to Blinde Sunglasses than the “Matrix” model that Keanu Reeves made famous, but each one of its sleek models deserves to be called the Chosen One. This sale offers a number of them, running the gamut from hip aviators to ornamented tortoiseshells. Packed with all the technical details that any shadehead covets — beta-titanium core wire, tumble-polished zyl frames — these glasses will instantly turn you into honorary Hollywood royalty.

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.
