Thanks for checking out the Sunskis! We’ve received a ton of support getting this far and we’re really excited to finally share all of our hard work with everyone. We’re bringing back some incredible vintage sunglasses that were nearly lost to the pages of history. There are only five pairs left on the planet, which is why we’re here on Kickstarter—to save these sunglasses from extinction! The new shades are stylish, polarized and contagiously fun to wear.
With your support, we'll be able to bring the Sunskis back, and you can be the first to wear these awesome shades in over 25 years!

Three years ago, Tom returned from a surf trip in Australia with a curious souvenir tucked away in his carry-on. Hiding among the sandy remains of his journey were a few pairs of colorful sunglasses called Sunskis. These vintage Australian shades haven’t been made in 25 years, and Tom’s few pairs turned out to be the last Sunskis of their kind.

We think Sunskis are a wonderful design treasure that shouldn’t be lost, so we’ve put our product design experience to the work over the past six months preparing the Sunski revival with improved craftsmanship for all to enjoy. Our updated Sunskis feature polarized lenses and hand-polished polycarbonate frames, all wrapped up in the original, vibrant design. The end result is the perfect blend between timeless style and modern sunglasses technology.

I love the story behind this one.

$67,925 pledged of $9,800 goal with 10 days still to go says it all.
