In the 1990s, Greg Arnet surfed almost every wave of the beaches of his native California - and of course all the top surf spots around the world. With the reputation he built as a gifted and fearless surfer, he was able to launch his own uniquely designed sunglasses onto the surfing scene and then the world. Now you can find the cult glasses from Arnette here at Mister Spex.
From the very beginning, Arnette sunglasses were popular thanks to their lightweight materials and wrap-around shape. Extreme designs were a characteristic of the glasses from the start. All of this gave Arnette glasses a cult status for a young, rebellious generation involved in extreme sports, and constantly looking for the next adrenaline kick.
Arnette place an emphasis on high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. This means that the glasses are robust and capable of dealing with the most difficult situations and conditions. All glasses are put through a series of demanding tests before they deemed worthy of the Arnette logo and released on the market.
All models in the Arnette sunglasses collection guarantee 100% UV protection thanks to their wrap-around shape and high quality lenses. They are made with scratch-resistant and shatterproof materials so that they can cope with every situation. Materials such as metal, acetate and Grilamid® (a lightweight yet robust plastic) are used for constructing the frames. The lenses are made of polycarbonate. A specially developed advanced plastic, APX, is also used to ensure maximum performance with minimal weight. Some of the models are also equipped with polarised lenses, which help improve the quality of vision.
The new Arnette collection embodies the sporty and innovative spirit of the brand. Large lenses and wide frames are combined with wrap-around shapes and diverse colours for a unique, trendy look. While Arnette sunglasses are influenced by fashion, they focus on performance and are designed for extreme use.
The Arnette Bluto manages to combine a sporty look with classic style. Inspired by Aviator shades, the large lenses are combined with a chunky plastic frame. The brown woodgrain model is a special highlight. You can also check out the Arnette Rage for something different!
