Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr. was launched in January of 2014 with idea of changing the industry from what is currently available in the three billion dollar sunglasses market. A true entrepreneur and iconic leader in his circles, Eddie sought out the best in the sports community for market feedback, retail and distribution advisers, marketing and sales strategists, lens technology leaders, and artisan Italian designers to create two introductory styles – The Huckleberry and The Qualifier (wraps). The shades currently retail at $130 each, a very competitive price point compared to more established offerings at much higher prices.

Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr. features a non-slip nose cradle. Many athletes lamented that the major brands slip off their face under the inertia of their movements. In addition, these intense performers were concerned about “prism” effect and distant distortion provided by leading eyewear as well. At high speeds, clarity of vision and distance judgment is critical.

So, Eddie solved these problems with a product that is fashionable, balanced, assembled by hand, built-to-last, and relieves stress points along the temples and behind the ear. Flash Electric™ coated lenses, reduces visual micro fractures which can stress the eyes. Flash Electric is an iridium coating process that is scratch and smudge resistant and allows the eye to receive natural light without causing pupils to dilate and impacting the eyes with an overexposure of UVA and UVB light. Other lenses may cause the pupils to widen, allowing more unhealthy light rays to impact the retinas. Some have reported a feeling of nausea with inferior lenses.

The iconic “Sikkshades Groucho” logo was expertly designed by a leading logo designer and has been adopted in the extreme sports and longboard skate community as “The Moustache Shades” which adds to the “cool factor”. The eye ware has also been adopted by those serving the military and law enforcement, with great reviews on social media.
