introducing

Inspired by the vibrant colors and classic styles Tom found on his surf trip to Australia, the Sunski Walkabouts are the perfect combination of timeless design and modern craftmanship. With solid polarization lenses, polished matte-black frames, and custom a travel box, the Sunskis offer designer quality features at a price affordable to everyone.

We're here on Indiegogo to introduce the Walkabouts as our first new addition to our original Sunski line launched last summer. Our goal is to produce a limited production run of the Walkabouts for timely delivery this fall! We hope you enjoy learning about the shades!

Thanks for stoping by!  -Michael & Tom

 

walkabotustory

Ever since we launched the original Sunski colors last summer, we’ve been hard at work making sure the Sunskis meet our high standards for quality, comfort, and affordability. We’ve also listened to your feedback and suggestions throughout the entire process: you guys wanted a new style of Sunskis with a darker frame...Which is why we're so excited to introduce the brand new, matte-black, Sunski Walkabouts!  

kahtyrn

Like the original Sunskis, the Walkabouts are polarized shades featuring the quality you would expect from designer sunglasses at a price that everybody can afford. They come in our custom Sunski travel boxes, and are especially important to us because they represent the first product expansion we have launched since we first made the originals Sunski. Crowdfunding will always be a part of the Sunski story, so we felt that Indiegogo would be the perfect place to introduce our new Sunskis.

log

We’ve also limited the number of Sunski Walkabouts that we’re producing to ensure on time delivery and manageable box packing.  It's just the two of us here and we pack every box ourselves!

specs

The Walkabouts feature the timeless wayfarer style, updated with the latest technology in sunglasses manufacturing.  Check out all the details here!

sunskilenses

We've updated the lenses with the very best technology available today.  The tri-acetate cellulose core includes a solid polarization layer, and the lenses offer 100% full-spectrum UV protection, including UVA, UVB and UV400 wavelengths.  The combination of polarization and UV protection allows for better and brighter vision without eyestrain.  They are EU Category 3 lenses with a visible light transmission rating of 15%, and meet all US ANSI z80.3-2001 standards, including the FDA basic impact test.  The dialectic mirror coating further blocks glare and makes you look really cool as well. 

sunski frames

The rugged Sunski frames that you all love are back, in black.  The durable and flexible polycarbonate frames can take the beatings you throw at it and still hold up beautifully.  The construction material used is the lightest and strongest on the market, and the elasticity of the arms provides the wearer with a universal fit that's both comfortable yet tight enough to stay on your head, no matter how big the moguls or how head-bangin' the rock concert. 

hinges

The hinges have been upgraded from their original style to a five-spoke and pin design that allows for stronger torsional rigidity and consistent tension when opening and closing the hinge.  They also look awesome. It's all in the details!

 

rewards

As independent designers with new tools like Indiegogo, we can partner directly with our supporters to deliver all of the Sunski quality at a price that everybody can afford.  With your help, we can sidestep the brand inflation, middlemen and markups that makes most “designer” glasses of this quality extremely expensive.  The Sunskis embody the best of what we're all about: making things that we love to use--things that we hope you’ll love as well.

In return for your support, we’re offering...Sunskis! We've limited the number of Sunski Walkabouts that we are producing so we can keep box packing under control and deliver your Sunskis on time.
