The choice of Boris Herrmann for the 2020/21 Vendée Globe.
The most iconic sports sunglasses of the 70s are back.
We have collaborated with Team Malizia to bring you these Special Edition Howlin' that protected Boris Herrmann's eyes during the 2020/2021 Vendèe Globe; the toughest one-handed regatta in the world.
Polarized with a curved frame to reduce side glare, and a removable strap to keep them firmly in place.
Team Malizia are raising awareness for 'A Race we must win'; the fight against the climate crisis. Their goal is to populate the Malizia Mangrove Park with 1,000,000 more mangroves to protect marine and coastal life, in addition to storing vast amounts of carbon.
For every pair of Special Edition Howlin's sold, VALLON will be planting 10 mangroves at the Malizia Mangrove Park.

The rectangular, Aviator-shaped frames have an added curve to provide more protection from side glare. They also come with a removable strap that can be used to tighten them behind the head to ensure they stay on no matter the activity. The strap can also be used to keep the sunglasses around your neck when not in use.
The polarized TAC-lens (category 3, 100% UV) is optimal for outdoor recreation; impact resistant yet lightweight. The frame is made from premium cellulose acetate; a non-petroleum based material that is very strong and durable.

Great style and quality. The strap is very useful when sailing to make sure I don’t lose my sunnies.
Super leicht, liegen perfekt und der Sonnenschutz ist einfach nur unbeschreiblich! Ich bin sehr glücklich darüber, dass ich dieses Produkt gekauft habe und würde es jedem empfehlen! Danke!
I love the glasses! And of course I am a Malizia fan and hope, there will be more mangroves to plant!
Nice sunglasses. Stylish. Lightweight. And the head strap is a great feature for sailors. Very happy. They are quite large but also comfortable.
So far so good. It’s a great product. Love the design and quality and would recommend more of this type with different coloured lens’s.
