These Ray-Ban Aviators Are Based On a Historic Model from 1938

Only 500 pairs available.


Ray-Ban just released a limited-edition Aviator based on a historic model from 1938. The style was originally designed to help fighter pilots deal with eye strain at higher altitudes and features convex tear-drop glass lenses and thin metal frames. Though initially called ‘Anti-Glares,’ the sunglasses were rebranded ‘Ray-Ban’ upon release to the public. 

The new release is limited to 500 pairs worldwide and is only available for five more days. Unlike modern iterations of the Aviator, it the style has hooked cables temples that wrap around the ear. The Aviator Reloaded is available in the traditional colorway that features G15 green lenses and a gold frame and a new colorway that features Blue Legend lenses and a black frame, both of which retail for $163. If you’re a fan of traditional Aviators but haven’t wanted to shell out the cash for a vintage pair, this is a great opportunity to pick up the style for a significantly smaller investment.
