Usain Bolt, greatest sprinter of all time has done it again! Not just three more Olympic golds to add to the collection, but his collaboration with Puma on some out of this world sports sunglasses. Being the fastest man on the planet comes with a few perks, and his Puma sponsorship has got to be up there with the best of them.
The nine-times Olympic gold medallist has been sponsored by Puma since he was just sixteen and has a hugely successful sportswear and lifestyle collection to his name, Bolt and Puma have joined forces again to create some ultra-luxe sports frames that we just love.
The real strength in this collection lies in its clever design; aerodynamic frames are resilient enough for the wear and tear of everyday life, but their practical qualities don’t detract from the high-performance feel.
The stunning gold mirrored lenses that feature throughout the collection are scratch resistant and easy to clean, another example of how Puma and Bolt have got the balance between form and function just right.
There’s a reason the Wayfarer is one of the best-selling frame styles of all time and these frames show just why, they frame the face and are so easy to wear.
Pictured above, these Wayfarers are the ultimate in urban-cool with modern detailing to the stems in a textured checkerboard effect. The iconic puma sits next to Bolt’s initials on the stems – in gold of course. If you fancy grabbing a pair of these they’re style PU0008SA and whilst we love the gold lenses, if it isn’t your thing, they’re available in loads of other colours.
Aviators are never out of fashion for a good reason, the retro feel to these frames is spot on, whether you’re setting out to break a world record or just off to the pub.
The plastic stem and slit detail gives this classic shape a modern update, they’re style PU0007S and are available in the mirrored gold lens, but if you’re feeling like something different then try the ruthenium and red frames pictured above (take it from us, real men wear pink.)
The Athletic Frame
Finally the athletic frames, these are clearly designed with sport in mind. The aerodynamic frames fit the face closely, allowing you to run, cycle or sweat it out however you choose in comfort and style.
The cut-out detail to the top of the lenses gives off a high performance vibe, whilst the gold Bolt initials add a touch of luxury. If sports-luxe is your thing, these are style PU0001S, for the Bolt collaboration choose colour 007.
Love the feel of these sunnies but can’t quite decide on a style for you? There are loads more Puma frames to choose from online at Select Specs, including prescription ready lenses and delivery available worldwide.
