Troakley.com | Here Are 2 Sunglass Companies That Are On A Mission

It isn’t enough these days to just be a pair if ordinary sunglasses or even highly stylish sunglasses. Now, your sunglasses should have a sense of purpose. With spring bearing down hard and summer not far away, choosing the right pair of sunglasses can be a critical style decision and one that can soothe your soul as well.

These are two very different types of sunglasses, each with a purposeful mission. Fatheadz Eyewear is designed for the big guy that can’t just grab a pair of sunglasses off the rack at the drug store and Costa Sunglasses are out to save the sharks among other things.

If you’ve ever known a big guy (full disclosure I’m married to someone who is 6’5”) buying sunglasses is a nightmare. You know the joke. “You know what it means if I have big hands and big feet? Big gloves and big shoes!” Well, it also means big sunglasses. A big guy looks ridiculous wearing normal sized sunglasses. They look like suntanning booth shades. Tiny glasses on a big head.

The company was started back in 2004 by Rico Elmore with four sunglasses in various colors. He now has over 100 different styles. Fatheadz’s are made in America and can be bought at Wal-Mart and through Amazon. You can also get them with prescription lenses. My husband bought a pair of regular prescription eyeglasses at Wal-Mart and was more than thrilled when he came across these frames and it was a game changer for him.

Fatheadz is also giving back to Veterans. For every pair of sunglasses that they sell online a portion of the profit is donated to Folds of Honor. This group provides scholarships to the children of fallen and disabled soldiers. A big deal for the big guys.

Troakley.com|Top 10 Oakley Polarized Sunglasses 2016

 You step outside in your brand new sunglasses. You got them for free with a bunch of other promotional giveaways at your last half marathon. Oh yeah, these look good, you think to yourself.

Making your way to the sidewalk, you press play on the first song in your running mix. Picking up speed, you notice an intense glare reflecting off the pavement, your eyes tearing up slightly due to the burn. Wanting to escape the glare and hoping for a more scenic route, you venture to the park near your house. However, your dark lenses do nothing to enhance the scenery and dull the view instead. You return home defeated, wondering if there is a better way.

Oakley has a solution: HDPolarized lenses.

You may have heard the word “polarized” tossed around before, but you’re not really sure what it means. Without getting too much into the science, polarized light is light that bounces off surfaces, reflecting light and creating glare. Polarized lenses filter out polarized light.

In addition to pavement, water and snow also cause glare when the sun reflects off them. Not only is glare annoying, the UV light from the glare can harm your eyes. Oakley polarized lenses block 99% of glare.

Oakley polarized lenses are some of the clearest lenses on the market. While other brands use glue to attach polarized filters, Oakley uses infusion molding to make their lenses. As a result, their one-layer lenses prevent distortion, blur and shifting of objects when you look through them.

You can choose from a wide range of lens options based on the outdoor condition. For example, if you are going to be out on the water, Bronze Polarized or Deep Blue Polarized lenses are really good at filtering out the glare from the water. If you go for a run, OO Red Iridium Polarized or Black Iridium Polarized lenses can block the glare reflected off asphalt.

Not only is Oakley at the top of its game when it comes to polarized sunglasses, they have so many different styles, whether you are looking for a sporty pair of sunglasses for extreme performance, an active pair with some performance features or a lifestyle pair for daily use.
