Ever since trying out some of their sunglasses almost a year ago, Tyson and I have become huge fans of Optic Nerve. The Colorado born and bred company already had a few high marks in our book because of the style, affordability, and quality.
This year, they are introducing a new line called ONE or Optic Nerve for Everyone which makes us love the brand even more (and you will too, trust me). The idea behind ONE is to make the Optic Nerve name, quality, and style available to those with not such deep pockets. The Throwbacks are a part of this line and I have already found it hard to put on a different pair of sunglasses.
I love the look of these glasses; they are fun, eye-catching, and super comfortable. I would say I have a medium sized face and the fit is absolutely perfect. The brown lens, Demi Glaze frame color, and gold detailing add some pizzaz to any outfit or look.
The Throwbacks retail for $30.00 and are a polarized lens. Like I said in the video, Optic Nerve keeps the polarized protection while offering a lower price point because instead of infusing the lens with the polarization, it is simply a coating. If you continue to drop your sunglasses on rock surfaces, the coating could potentially come off.
Whether you need a pair of adventure sunglasses or are just looking for something stylish to wear to and from work, these are a great option. The ONE line by Optic Nerve is not available yet, however be sure to check regularly as these sunglasses at these prices are going to have you heading back for seconds!
