Gretchen Bleiler has been warming up to the cold all her life. She’s been intimately familiar with the cold’s hardships since her first boarding session at age 11. She knows how cold can cramp your style, your movement and body all at once. A three-time X Games Gold Medalist and Olympic Silver Medalist, Gretchen has had to learn how to embrace the cold without losing one second of speed, one fall from grace, or one wink of style.
With that style, an evolution of grace weaves its way through the design of the new 2009 Gretchen Bleiler Signature Series. This special edition of RESTLESS™ sunglasses showcase the flair for fashion that the Gretchen Bleiler collection exudes. Accented by sleek stems that we sheathed in genuine leather this polished gold framed piece is one that leaves you restless and yearning for more.
It takes 8.75 base lens curvature to create a field of view this wide. The contours extend your peripheral vision and improve side protection against blazing sun, blistering UV, blustering wind and banging impact. Our pure Plutonite® lens material filters out 100% of all ultraviolet light, and thanks to HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) combines patented optics and PLUTONITE® lens material that provides 100% UV filtering and unsurpassed impact protection.
Durable C-5™ alloy minimizes weight for comfort that lasts the whole day. The linear earstems aren’t just for styling they’re part of a Three-Point Fit that holds the lenses in precise alignment while ensuring the frame makes contact only at the sides of your head and the bridge of your nose.
You can also get this frame with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses (+2.00 to -4.00 combined power).
RESTLESS comes with our exclusive women’s eyewear case and custom Gretchen Bleiler Signature Microclear® bag.
