The rounded shape of the Abeno can be traced to the 1970s when the students of Boston universities wore a certain style of glasses, which were later on named as Boston frames. They are characterized by an inverted triangular design. They create a flattering visual balance and a less overwhelming look than many circular frames.

Our Amethyst colored Contrast lens suppresses direct glare and emphasizes the unevenness of white objects and landscapes. Ideal for winter sports and outdoor adventures. Have a look at our lens guide.

    Boston Frame

    The emergence of the modern Boston shape trend can be traced to the 1970s, but round lens styles are some of the oldest styles of sunglasses. They are based on early metal frames, when lenses could only be cut round.

    Since then, they’ve been established as a timeless style, evolving with tweaks and updates like elongated corners, or brow line accents.

    I was looking for a reasonable pair of sunglasses for taking walks in the snow. These came up via Google and I’m glad I gave them a try.
    They arrived in a really nice box with proper explanations on how to set up the nose pads. Which I really appreciated. They fit well, and they don’t slide down the nose. Not even when I’m getting a bit sweaty from walking faster.
    I also want to talk about the lens. They say it’s especially made for snow, and you can see that. The instantly give you contrast and let you see the subtle differences in the snowy landscape. And I’d say they really work best on a blue bird day, when it’s really bright out. The effect get a little less when it’s slightly overcast. But they still work of course.
    Overall, I’m very satisfied with these. Thank you!

    This lens is amazing. I use these glasses for driving in the snow, and they provide so much definition and contrast. I wish my ski goggles had this lens color. It’s hard to believe that they make such a difference, but they really do. I’ve told many people about them already, because I get a lot of question on how this lens color makes the world look like. And I don’t tell them purple, I say you can actually see better. Well done on these!

    A nice and affordable pair of sunglasses. They are light and sturdy. The lens is really the hero here though.
    Bought these after reading about the brand on Carryology. They specialize on knowing different environments and delivering the right lenses for those. The amethyst colored lens is recommended for snow, and it really works miracles. When you put them on you get an instant contrast boost. Makes we wonder about trying some of the other lenses (they also have one for cloud days! Curious). But I can really recommend these ones for the snow!
