Arnette Sunglasses may not be quite as popular as Prada, Dior and Gucci when it comes to high fashion shades, but if you surf, ski or take part in just about any other sport you can think of, you've probably heard of them. Arnette make sunglasses, goggles, helmets and even apparel, and in the world of sports, they're a force to be reckoned with. Sporty yet stylish, these are sunglasses for the ultra-modern: but they're also highly practical, and a great buy if you need to cut down glare on the slopes or at sea.
A quick glance at Arnette's sunglasses range tells you that these aren't your usual, "safe" sunglasses. Funky and modern, the glasses come in a range of different styles, all of which are designed to both look good and offer the maximum protection for your eyes.
Arnette sunglasses are first and foremost designed for sportspeople, so it's no surprise that sportsmen and woman all over the world wear and recommend them. Surfer Bruce Irons, for example, wears a pair of metal grey polarized sunglasses with wrap-around effect, while skateboarder Danny Supa prefers a more classically styled, aviator frame with brown faded lenses.
At the Arnette website, you can click on the "Athletes Choice" tab to see what your favorite athletes are wearing. Either go with their recommendations, or browse the full collection to find the perfect pair of glasses for your look and requirements.
Although Arnette sunglasses are made with athletes in mind, of course, there's nothing to stop the rest of us from buying them too. Most of the designs have a definite "sporty" look, but they'll still look good on the beach, or as streetwear. Wear your Arnette glasses with casual clothes such as jeans or shorts to get the right look.
If you've ever tried skiing, you'll know how important it is to buy a good pair of goggles. Not only do they protect your face from falling snow, they also shield your eyes against the glare created when bright sunglight hits pure white snow.
Arnette's goggles are designed to fulfil both of those purposes, and to look good while they're doing it. With names like The Destroyer and Ruler, you can tell that these are serious goggles, made for a serious purpose. Arnette also make goggles for motorcross riders.
