It is hard to imagine anyone not having owned a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses before, whether as a hand-me-down, secondhand or as a fresh pair. The glasses giant has a selection for everyone. Their oval and rectangular frames are the best sellers, but they also have the classic aviators, wayfarers and sports wrap arounds in high demand.

Personally, if we’re looking for a pair of aviators, this is where we go. They even have a Junior collection; sunglasses specifically for kids.

Velocity

The Velocity brand is known for its sleek and lightweight designs. They have many polarised sunglasses, and their pairs tend to be durable. We really like their funky frames; they have quite a few. A good pair to buy if you’re looking for something lighter on the wallet than the big-name brands, but sturdy enough to take with you on a biking trip or trekking and climbing.
