Proof Wood Frame Sunglasses
You gotta love when a great story comes together to create a cool product. The 3 brothers who started Proof say they grew up “with sawdust in their veins” as they worked with their Grandpa Bud at his sawmill in small-town Idaho. From these everyman roots they built Proof Eyewear and today, create unique, handcrafted, environmentally-friendly eyewear like these Ontario Exotic Wood Veneer Sunglasses. The 5-ply construction mimics the way skateboards are put together, which instantly gets our attention and they’re handmade using Canadian maple and exotic veneers like Zebra, Walnut, and Cherry. Multiple frame sizes are available and the polarized CR-39 plastic lenses are half the weight of glass, with a scratch-resistant coating and 100% UVB/UVA protection. They even come in a custom wood case. And on the good-guys front, Proof does what it can to give back to the environment and to those in need. A portion of every sale goes to charities they believe in and they also work with non-profits in India that provide sight-giving surgery to cataract sufferers. These babies are part of a limited production run though, so grab them while you can because Foster Grant can’t touch this.
