What to Look for in Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses

Chances are that if you're considering a mirrored aviator frame, you're already quite familiar with the iconic aviator look and its spin-offs. Let's briefly cover a few things to consider when picking an aviator.

Lens Shape

The distinguishing feature on aviator sunglasses are the dramatic teardrop lenses. There are, however, several interpretations that use a shallower lens or more square design. Depending on your facial features, consider the lens shape when selecting your aviator frame. For example, do you have particularly high and prominent cheekbones? A true teardrop lens risks touching your cheeks, so you may be more comfortable in a less dramatic shape with a shallower lens.

Adjustable Fit Features

To ensure a perfect fit, we love adjustable fit features. Adjustable nose pads and flexible temple tips allow you to customize the fit and get the most comfortable eyewear experience yet. This is an easy feat considering many aviators are metal frames and already feature these adjustable components.

SportRx Frame Width

To help you find your perfect aviator size, we’ve come up with a new way to reliably measure frames and determine your size. It’s called the SportRx Frame Width (SFW).

To break it down, we use our SFW to measure accurate frame dimensions, determine the fit of a frame, and show how to apply your SFW when buying sunglasses online. It’s taken time to perfect, and we couldn’t be more confident in the results! That's why you'll find an SFW measurement for every one of the frames in our lineup of the best mirrored aviators!
