If you’re looking for a sign to retire your contact lenses and upgrade your frames, this may be it. This month, iconic sportswear brand adidas is joining forces with Specsavers, known around the world for its accessible and high-quality eyewear and expert eyecare, to release two sleek eyewear collections in a range of streetwear-inspired colourways and silhouettes.
First up is the Originals collection, which includes thirteen optical frames and three sunglasses and echoes the look and feel of your fave adidas Originals pieces: think everyday looks that are casual, cool and timeless.
Styles to look out for include the Originals blue and Stan Smith green frames, which take inspiration from the footwear brand’s most iconic and beloved styles. If you’re partial to classic black frames, the Originals collection features a pair embellished with sharp gold foil adidas branding with laser engraved two-toned temple detailing.
Also debuting this month is the adidas Sport range, which combines ultra-innovative eyewear design techniques with elevated materials to produce something that’s distinctly on-brand. Athletes and sports enthusiasts will appreciate the featherlight feel, double-injected rubber temples and in-mould temple tips which help with grip and durability, especially during high-intensity workouts. As far as fashion goes, the eye-catching two-toned and acetate styles combined with modern shapes are a feast for the eyes—literally.
Best of all, you can cop these frames at a surprisingly affordable price point: the Originals collection is priced at $249 CAD, and the Sport collection goes for $299 CAD. All frames are housed in an exclusive adidas branded case.
