Shuron Freeway SS12 Sunglasses

Shuron is one of the oldest names in USA manufactured sunglasses, and these Freeway frames for SS12 are superb.

Founded in 1865, Shuron have been around for a while now. Once the most popular frame in the US during the 50’s and 60’s, Shuron’s sales of their Ronsir Zyl frame actually made up for more than half the glasses sold at the time – quite a crazy little fact.

These particular frames draw on that rich history and have a very distinct 50’s aesthetic to them. There’s something about the choice in colours for the lenses that I find mesmerising. They aren’t too bright and demanding of attention, but the colours are so rich. The frame shape is timeless, as with most of the glasses designed in the 50’s, possibly the best era from glasses frames.

You can get yourself a pair of these iconic USA made frames now from Oi Polloi for £149 a pair.

    Love the brown frames with the green lenses. Would you mind sharing which of the green lens options Shuron offers are pictured here with the smoke brown frames?
