Glassy Sunhaters Sunglasses - Online UK Skate Store
One of today's young and promising companies owned and operated by skateboarders is Glassy Sunhaters. We say this because they are not only targeting the skateboarding community with their super cool and affordable sunnies, but a wide demographic within the fifty states in the US and across the globe.
Imagine getting more than two pairs of Glassy sunnies without splurging beyond £100. That's a great deal of savings on your part. But this does not mean their product is low-quality. In fact, Sunhaters are known for their high-quality plastic acrylic frames (which the company tests for durability every year) and UV 400 protection lenses, so customers can look cool and stylish while benefitting from all these features at the same time.
The brand's extensive list of skaters are among the greatest in the world including Paul Rodriguez, Mike Mo Capaldi, Mike Carroll, Brandon Biebel, Aaron 'Jaws' Homoki, Carlos Ribeiro, Stefan Janoski, Guy Mariano, Marc Johnson, Ryan Reyes, Shane O'Neill, Daewon Song, among many others.
Of Humble Beginnings, Sold Outs and Pet Names
Brothers Vince and Mike Capaldi are the brains behind Glassy Sunhaters. They founded the company in 2012 starting with a small budget to run the business and a website. Starting with a hundred pairs of sunnies, the business took off at a fast rate - selling out their products more quickly than expected.
Vince takes care of the design and works on a computer to conceptualise their ideas and come up with styles for their product line. Mike or Mike Mo is a professional skateboarder who takes care of the warehousing and packaging of the sunnies in their respective boxes.
One interesting and funny trivia about Glassy is they name all of their sunglasses after their pet animals. For instance, one of their sunglasses styles is called Deric. Deric is the name of one of their dogs who is named after Deric the filmer.
The Glassy Product Line
The brand's popular Signature Sunhaters are polarised sunnies designed by pros and are available in exclusive colourways. Their standard polarised sunnies feature anti-glare lenses with increased depth perception and offers visual comfort. Choose from the variety of styles available such as the Chuck, Deric, Robyn, Shredder, Royal, Lox, Fritz, Lincoln, Leonard, Ridley and Morrison.
The Gamer spectacles are the latest additions to their growing product line. These eyeglasses offer enhanced vision and enable the wearer to play longer since the protective lenses lessen eye strain.
If you want other stuff aside from sunnies, Glassy offers umbrella hats, sunglass straps and bags, sticker packs, key chains, posters, griptape, stockings, socks, tees and plush pillows.
