SPY’s existence from Day 1 involved a constant evolution of the relationship between material, function and design, and to this day the brand's DNA underscores an obsession with progressing the quality of experience, of taking it all in, of having fun while doing things that a lot of people think are downright crazy. Within this craziness lies the genius of the SPY brand, its athletes and designers. SPY continues to place itself at the intersection of retro-futuristic design and optical innovation, while at the same time fueling its identity through the iconic minds, bodies and vision of the world's most creative and inspiring athletes, as well as its athletically-inspired creatives.
Here are some things they did along the way:
*Drink it, Jimmy... it's just like what they give the astronauts.* In 1994, SPY began R&D on a lens program using state-of-the art aerospace tech common in fighter pilot and astronaut lens design. It took five years and countless trials, but success finally came in 1999 with production of the first Accurate Radius Curvature (ARC) line: crystal clear vision at all angles of vision delivered in a shatterproof, scratch-proof lens. Try to break it. Try to scratch it. You can't.
*If you keep doing that, you'll go blind.* Eyewear fog-up and misting was a plague for outdoor sports through the '90s. Athletes wearing goggles, protective eyewear or sunglasses had to contend with condensation obscuring their vision as their bodies heated up in the cold air or fog... not a good thing approaching 100 mph or above 30 feet in the air. In 1995, the SPY "Scoop" technology was perfected, earning it a U.S. patent and the appreciation of athletes worldwide. So, what's the scoop on The Scoop? A special vent system is incorporated into the Scoop frame, which produces an air-churning Venturi effect between the eye and lens surface, moving condensation out and away before it can settle.
Scope our Scoop, if you haven’t gone blind yet.
*Anatomy of a Glaring Achievement* Polarized eyewear has long been standard equipment for athletes outdoors to minimize blinding glare from light bouncing off surfaces like water, snow and pavement. In 1996, SPY advanced its ARC technology to include Trident™ Polarization, a special filter injected between two layers of ARC material. The result: a lightweight, shatterproof lens that cuts glare. Glaringly sick, we think.
*What Now?* SPY has an intensely devoted crew focused on creating something profound and committed to fusing ideas, art and engineering to produce an eyewear collection that is unrivaled in utility and style. They figure once you have all that dialed, you can cut loose and have some fun.
Their brand's heritage is rooted in action sports, motorsports and multisports, and it's supported by a genetic code linking people, product and passion. So with that in mind, they're looking to do what they're wired to do: to come up with new solutions and styles that make a difference not just on the face of things but in the hearts and minds of those who rock their stuff with confidence, pride and a big-ass grin.
Spy Optic Hielo Polarized
I was looking to buy a pair of Oakley sunglasses, and these came up in my search. I had never heard of this brand before, but decided to give them a try. I'm so glad I did...these glasses are great! I usually buy men's sunglasses since I have a fat head, and these glasses fit perfectly. They are comfortable and block the sunlight well without distorting my vision. These are keepers!

This was a gift to my grandson who was turning 16 He loved these spy sunglasses from his actions it was well worth it. The only disappointment was for the price they did not come with a case to keep them in. Felt like they should have, otherwise was happy. Zappos is right on your order, I love Zappos. Thank You....

I purchased these glasses for my 18 year old grandson. He says they are the best sunglasses he has ever had. Hot, hot days here and they offer the protection and nonglare qualities he wanted. Thanks.
