There are not too many things that make me feel “cool” as a mom. Before I was a mom I felt “cool” carrying a big, trendy purse or wearing killer heels. Now if I have my big, trendy purse it is so stuffed with baby things that it doesn’t look cool and I am stumbling in my heels as I try to juggle my baby on my hip. That is why I was so excited when Proof Eyewear sent me these Ontario Skate sunglasses…something to make me feel cool again!Proof Eyewear is a company from Idaho run by 3 brothers. Proof prides themselves pride on providing original products that are handcrafted from sustainable materials and that aren’t just environmentally friendly, but unique and original!
They have sunglasses that are made from skateboard desks, wood, and plant based acetate. “Extreme attention to detail is placed in each frame Proof makes. Each pair has laser engraved logos and a quote on the inside arm. Each pair of glasses comes in its very own custom wood case and microfiber pouch to protect and keep your glasses clean.”Here I am in the Ontario Skate sunglasses in aqua. These things ROCK! They are lightweight and made from 5 ply Canadian maple skateboard decks. What does it mean to be made from skateboard decks? Other that cool and unique, it makes it so they are extremely durable. “Each frame is hand polished and coated with a water/sweat protective seal.” Also, the lenses provide 100% UVA / UVB protection. Stainless steel spring loaded hinges make these glasses comfortable. They don’t squeeze your brains out like some sunglasses do.This style is also available in two other colors: Rasta and USAProof sunglasses retail for $90-$125. This may be high for some of us, maybe most of us, but they are worth it! Theses wooden sunglasses are so unique, comfortable, and more importantly environmentally friendly. They would make a great Mother’s Day or Father’s Day present. I promise they will remember that present more than flowers or chocolate or a tie.“Proof not only strives to give back to the environment, they also strive to help those in need. A portion of each sale goes to non profit charities Proof believes in. Proof works with nonprofits in India that provide sight giving surgeries to people with cataracts.” See! Now you can look and feel cool while helping give sight to someone in need. Win, win!
