This type of aviator frame dominated ski culture in the 70s and early 80s. The epitome of cool, they were worn by everyone from the greatest skiers to the biggest movie stars. They came in all different sizes and colors. And then they disappeared...
We have therefore made it our mission to bring back the Ski Aviators to their former glory! Now updated with high-performance materials and a modified design allowing for a more modern fit. The frame is made from premium cellulose acetate; a non-petroleum based material that is very strong and durable. The nylon (polyamide) lens is optimal for active sports; impact resistant yet lightweight. The mirror-coated category 3 lens (100% UV) reflects light and reduces eyestrain, while also giving that 70s mountain style. The Ski Aviators are what VALLON is all about.

Vallon’s “Ski Aviators” are the balm for what ails all of us luddites who lament the passing of our classic iSki sunglasses from the 1970’s and ’80’s. But truth be told, these Vallons are better. I still have a pair of the old iSkis, and they tug at my heart strings, but the 40 year old lenses just aren’t up to modern standards. These Vallons have excellent build quality and proper modern lenses, and the proportions of the frame, just a bit smaller and more streamlined than the iSkis, are more flattering. (And I’m a big guy with a round face. These aren’t SMALL frames. Just more… tidy.) I’m in love. Classic looks, beautiful proportions, excellent quality, and a fair price. The only thing I wish Vallon would do is offer them in red. Or maybe a red-white-and-blue “sandwich” colorway, with the red prominent. But I have the blue version and they are dead sexy. Buy with confidence. Great, great sunglasses. I’m so glad I found them.
Hi, I really like my new glasses. I have wanted a pair in this style ever since I saw a similar pair being worn by a ski instructor when I was a kid. The style id good the lens quality is good. If you decided to produce a pair with a laminated frame with a red/white/blue combination I think it would be a big seller. Good product! JE
Great lens quality and really stunning style!
Man, I went in a seconds back to the good old times! When we have lot snow and sun in slopes, when girls were prettier and quys more firm!
One of the best sunglasses I ever bought!
