With Christmas well and truly behind us like a faded festive memory, it’s time to turn our attention to the slopes – it’s ski season!
Whether you love snuggling up round a fire in the Alps or you’re tipsy for Tignes, we all love a bit of skiing. It’s a great opportunity to get away from it all, whilst enjoying some of the best winter sports out there.
But the fashion stakes are also high when it comes to skiing and this is where our gorgeous goggles come in. A real statement all of their own, more and more of us are looking to eyewear even before we’ve sat on the ski lift!
Colour plays an integral role in the typical skiers attire and can really set off an outfit. From neon pink to radiant red, we’ve got men’s goggles down to a tee.
When it comes to Ski goggle technology, many developments have been made in the last few years. Fret not, you won’t be scratching around in pain any more thanks to a number of different features. This includes the likes of anti-fogging as well as up to the minute lens technology.
This leads to a far better field of vision than ever before, which a host of major brands have improved dramatically. All in all, ski goggles not only provide crucial protection against the elements but are also scratch resistant for any rough and tumbles.
One thing to note though is you should always ensure your goggles fit correctly. We don’t want any gaffes on the slopes now do we? Your goggles should always have a snug fit so that they are comfortable to wear.
So if you are crazy for Courcheval, why not look resplendent in one of our must have men’s ski goggles. Chocs away old boy:
