Every day, all day, Smith Optics Proof pairs exceptional polarized performance with dawn-to-dusk comfort
KETCHUM, IDAHO (for immediate release) – Combining easy-going wearability with superior polarized performance, the Smith Optics Proof is designed to be worn every day, all day long.
Powered by Smith’s legendary polarized lenses, which neutralize distracting glare and 100 percent of harmful UV rays, the Proof is built with premium Carbonic lenses for lightweight, impact-resistant protection.
“From the ground up, the Proof was crafted to be a seven-day frame that’s equally at home on the water, in the mountains, or on the street,” said Peter Crow, general manager for Smith’s Action Optics Polarized Collection.
The Proof’s 8-base frames offer a distinctive “wrap-style” lens curvature and a medium to large fit. Thanks to Smith Optics’ Tapered Lens Technology™ (TLT™), a precise thinning of the lens from the center to the edges, the Proof eliminates distortion commonly found in other sunglasses.
Additional features include a Grilamid TR90 frame which delivers maximum durability and comfort, a custom stainless steel logo plaque that serves up a touch of extra style, and stainless steel 5-barrel Italian hinges which compliment the premium fit and feel of the Proof. As with all Smith Optics sunglasses, the Proof is protected by a Lifetime Warranty.
The Proof is available in three frame and lens combinations including Black frames with Polarized Gray ($99); Dark Ale with Polarized Copper ($99); Stout Fade with Polarized Brown ($99).
The Proof will be available in stores by October, 2006.
