Why They're CoolNative freshens the familiar in both substance and style. Trip on the two-tone nylon frame: It's dark on top and fades to a see-through pale-ale color you almost want to drink. » The design stretches the slender temples, with a beguiling little S-curve at the end. The temples reach behind the ears and hold the skull for rock-solid security bolstered by rubber nose pads. » Ripp's poly lenses, polarized and tinted like strong tea, slay glare and cut clean images from a challenging, moving world. » Above the lenses, the frame sports a little shelf to close the gap between the shades and you, and it has small holes to promote ventilation. Thought and care shows all over.

Hmmm . . .OK, maybe you really are tired of sports wraps.

RX-ABLE?Yep. Call Native for a list of optometrists.
