Reversible Sunglasses Offer Two Styles in One

Reversible Sunglasses Offer Two Styles in One

Flipping the temples of these frames around convert them into a whole new pair of shades

Summer is coming to an end and unfortunately that means many of us will be retiring our sunglasses until the spring. For those of you lucky enough to require shades year round, those who like to plan ahead, and those who just like to be in the know, however, an interesting collaboration has resulted in a product that could literally cut your sunglasses expenses in half.


KAIBOSH is a Norwegian eyewear company that is known for being both fun and affordable. Recently, the company paired up with HAiK, a clothing brand also based out of Norway, to create a series of limited edition reversible sunglasses, called two-way glasses. By simply flipping the temples around, a person can change the color of their frames. Created with a special hinge, each pair of sunglasses features a frame made with an acetate front and CR39 triacetate-polarized lenses. The lenses provide UVA and UVB protection, and have an anti-scratch coating. In addition, the frames come in either a round or rectangular shape, and are available for both males and females.


Opticals by KAIBOSH are meant to be affordable because the company believes “life’s too short for one pair of frames.” On their website, KAIBOSH stresses the fact that glasses should complement your look- and until now, having one pair made it impossible to do that. With two-way glasses, each pair features a simple color, like blue or burgundy, while the other side features a funky pattern, like a white leopard print or tortoise. Truly the first of their kind, the two-way glasses can provide two different stylish and alternative looks, for less than the price most companies charge for one.
