The Smith Optics collection is not what many people will be accustomed to seeing from the brand who has made goggle history. Known for its concentration on the winter sports of snowboarding and skiing, the brand decided to revisit past designs in order to once again diversify its options. Specifically dubbed the Archive Collection, the designs pay homage to some of its most iconic sunglasses from the 80s and 90s.

Since many people are currently drawn to retro styles, the Smith Optics collection will find a big fan base. It is comprised of five styles in total that each bear a subtle label that signal the year it was launched. Modern technology was used to strengthen each design.
