Smith glasses are brand new! Introduced by Smith in the Fall of 2008, Smith eyeglasses have set a new standard for fashion and function in Smith glasses. Smith poured its years of experience and technical know-how from its sunglasses into the design and durability of its new Smith glasses line.
Based in Sun Valley, Idaho Smith Optics was founded in 1965 with the creation of the first goggle featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam. Today Smith is known for a wide array of sunglasses, goggles, helmets, and prescription eyewear. The Smith eyeglasses collection is an American-Italian collaboration constructed of such premium metals as titanium, stainless steel and hand-made acetate. Quality spring hinges, adjustable nose pieces and moldable temples are combined with graphic applications and logo treatments. The initial Smith eyeglass collection consists of seven performance-oriented frames, including two with the company’s Interlock technology, and 14 sport fashion styles. With this new Rx collection, Smith introduces its proprietary Interlock interchangeable lens technology to closed frame styling. Interlock frames feature a hidden mechanism, which gently pries open the frame with a twist of the temples, allowing for quick and secure lens changes. Smith’s Elite Division provides protective eyewear for our armed forces in combat, as well as eyewear for law enforcement and military personnel in non-combat situations. Smith’s devotion to excellence, innovation, performance, and style has made Smith the choice of action-sport athletes worldwide.
