Make a good impression! 3 recommended sunglasses that go well with masks

This may be a bit sudden, but how do you use a mask and sunglasses at the same time?

Many people wear sunglasses on a daily basis as a measure against UV rays to avoid the risk of sunburn, age spots, and freckles caused by UV rays entering the eyes, and the risk of eye problems such as dry eyes and cataracts caused by the accumulation of UV rays.

However, with masks now becoming essential in many situations due to COVID-19 countermeasures, many people are concerned about how to coordinate their glasses with masks, worrying that wearing mirrored or dark-colored lenses in combination with a mask will completely obscure the wearer's facial expression, giving others the impression that they are suspicious or scary.

For those people, we would like to introduce some items with thin colored lenses that allow people to see your eyes when they are face to face!

ORIGINAL NAVY Matte x Gray Polarized Yuya Akada Design Model

This model features the ever-popular frame shape that is the roots of DANG SHADES, and features an original color design by professional snowboarder Yuya Akada, who is supported by DANG SHADES.

The glasses are based on a slightly smaller round frame, which is a very popular trend these days, and the combination of blue polarized lenses is cool and very stylish.

Although this is a small-sized frame model, it fits both men and women, so it can of course be used by both men and women.

It has also attracted attention from the fashion industry, and was featured in the September 2021 issue of "MEN'S NON-NO."

All three color models introduced here have polarized lenses, but because the lens color is light, the degree of polarization itself is not high. However, light-colored lenses have the advantage that they can be worn comfortably even in dimly lit places, and they are effective in making the outlines of water and scenery clearer in dark situations where sunlight is blocked, such as indoors, in tunnels, or in dense forests.

Anglers love to wear light-coloured polarised lenses at dawn and dusk, or when fishing in mountain streams!

These lenses transmit light well, but also have a UV400 UV transmittance of less than 1%, so they are perfect for UV protection, reducing glare and easing eye strain!
