Tweens will love Real Kids’ stylish Fly shades, which are perfect for a variety of outdoor activities this fall. They can rock a pair of these classic sunglasses — which are similar in style to popular Aviators — while exploring pumpkin patches, navigating corn mazes, or enjoying a fun Halloween event with family and friends.
The History and Rise to Popularity of Aviator Sunglasses
Aviator sunglasses first appeared on the market in 1937. These designs were inspired by Navy and Army goggles, which were favored for their efficiency at blocking intense sunlight and glare from all angles.
Even though these goggles were no longer worn by aviators around 1940, sunglasses in this style had, by this point, become popular with everyone, from Naval aviators and law enforcement officials to celebrities and the general public. Notable celebrities that have worn aviator sunglasses as fashion statements, include Michael Jackson, Freddy Mercury, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox and Axl Rose.
Aviator sunglasses are known for their distinct appearance. These designs feature thin wire frames, which tend to be black or gold, with dark, reflective lenses that tend to be around three times the size of an average eye. Lenses are also convex for optimal protection. Additionally, aviator shades suit almost all face shapes and are comfortable for a range of leisure and sporting activities, which have further contributed to their popularity.
Features of Real Kids’ Fly Shades
You can only receive the full benefits of aviator sunglasses if they are fitted with UV-blocking lenses. For this reason, like all of our shades, Fly sunglasses offer 100 percent UV protection along with their shatterproof lenses and spring-loaded hinges. The iconic style comes in classic gold and sophisticated silver for the Tween (10+) age group.
Fly sunglasses will protect your tween’s eyes from harmful UV rays with a stylish flair. Check out this design in the Real Kids’ collection to find a pair of fashionable sunglasses for kids of all ages.
