Sk8Shades' Shop Announcement

sk8shades are made from used skateboards that have rolled in pools, ridden
inner cities and bombed down daunting hills. All the stories, travels and
good times are etched into the wood and that¹s what makes them super
special. In my approach to the construction of your sk8shades I used a cross
layer in the core for added strength and I cut the temple arms from the nose
and tail of the skateboards. The temples are available in clean and dirty
cuts. The dirty cut comes from the bottom of the board and shows all the
signs of the boards previous life, clean cuts bring fresh wood to the
surface for a cleaner look. Dirty frames are now available.

Lenses are Polarized, UV400 protected, scratch resistant, shock absorbent and optically correct. Spring hinges are standard as of May 2013.

Hardwood frames available in African Blackwood, Zebrano, Bird's Eye Maple, Wild Olive, Panga Panga, Candlewood, Sneeze Wood and more.
