These vintage Bolle Sunglasses were strongly endorsed by the triple Olympic champion, Jean Claude Killy. He can be seen wearing them in many of his photos, looking extremely cool with his signature look.
Decades ago, Jean Claude Killy was the Bolle Sunglasses guy! As the ‘cool’ & good looking triple Olympic Champion, from the 1968 Grenoble France Olympics, Bolle was really pleased to have him endorsing their Sunglasses.
Jean Claude Killy made these sunglasses a ‘must have’ for skiers around the world. These vintage sunglasses have the classic ‘red, white and blue trim’ around the edge of the frame, which cannot be seen in his photo’s straight on view.
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!
1960’s Cebe Killy ski goggles. These classic vintage ski goggles have adjustable air vents to prevent fogging. The Aspen General Store sold these for about $10.00 back in the day. Cebe was a sponsor of the US Ski Team in the 1960’s.
