It’s not uncommon to see eyewear companies releasing limited runs of specialized shades — in fact, so many of these brands release mediocre products that it can be difficult to determine what’s good and what isn’t. But sometimes, they strike gold — and EyeGoodies (EG) Custom Projects Black Ice Collection is the rare exception.
The Black Ice Collection calls upon three of the company’s most popular variants for a polarized update, furnished by none other than the widely renowned lens company, Nikon. The Japanese optic company has joined forces with EG to outfit their Paul Smith Alrick, foldable Steve McQueen Edition Persol 714SM, and contemporary Super Numero 47 eyeglasses with top-of-the-line polarized lenses known as “Black Ice.” These innovative styles are the recipients of a multilayer mirror technology that boasts significant upgrades to visual acuity, sharpness, and protection against ultraviolet, glare, and infrared light. If you’re interested in a pair, keep in mind that they’re a limited-edition release — you’ll have to battle the hordes of like-minded fashion mongers to emerge victoriously. The glasses are available via EyeGoodies’ site right now and start at a pleasantly-priced $300.
