These vintage sunglasses were discovered in the warehouse of the original importer, although this actual import from France was made in the 1960’s.  The sunglasses are in their original Bolle packaging too. Endorsed through the years by Jean Claude Killy, the packaging is complete with the Killy sticker.

These 1960’s Red, White and Blue Sunglasses were a huge hit at the Ski Industries of America (SIA) trade show in Denver this year. As I, (Richard Allen) wore them around the show, I got lots of attention from everyone, especially the ladies! People were wanting to buy them off my face, but as I only had one pair at the time, all offers were refused.

Fortunately we now have them available for sale at a price way below what I was being offered at the SIA Show.

Additionally, we have found a number of Vintage Ski Goggles – like the 1960’s Cebe Killy Goggles or the 1960’s Paraski Goggles that we now offer for sale. They are both great collector’s items and also fun to wear!

    These sunglasses are well made, with a very nice desgin. When I put them on for the first time while driving I instantly felt the difference in my eyes. Everything was clearer, and there was virtually no strain on my eyes over long driving distances. I am glad I bought them. The only thing I wish was different is the width of the frame. They fit a little snug against my head, but the hinges do flex out so they are not unconfortable. Maybe I have a big head?
