HISTORY OF SMITH
Smith Optics was founded in the United States. It is known for optics designed to give comfort and excellent vision. For many years, Smith has been manufacturing ski goggles. The story began in 1965 when an American orthodontist Robert Smith who at the same time was the lover of mountain skiing decided to improve constantly fogging ski goggles that prevent full descent down the slope. He created ski masks with double glasses from improvised materials right in his office. Doctor’s glasses became the opening of the season. Since then, the company has been a leader in the manufacture of equipment for athletes.
Today, the company is known not only for ski masks, but also for sunglasses, lenses and helmets. Smith Optics sunglasses protect eyes from UV rays 100% and provide contrasting vision while preserving the naturalness of colors. Frames are made of non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials - plastic and metal. At the same time, brand accessories look aesthetically pleasing becoming a universal complement to anyone's look.
In the Smith range of sunglasses, you can find your favorite mirrored lens products, semi-rimless models, and sports accessories which are extremely durable. Smith uses Techlight technology to manufacture polarized lenses for sharper and clearer vision. And with a special hydroleophobic lens coating repelling moisture, dirt and grease, these fantastic glasses protect eyes even better. Decent quality and elegant design make brand’s accessories indispensable on sunny days.
