    The best pair of sunglasses I’ve ever seen, much less owned.

    These guys offer an amazing warranty, but I don't know when I'll ever use it! I've dropped them so many times and was sure the lenses would scratch, but not even a scuff. You can feel the quality of the frame as soon as you pick them up, so I'm not worried there either. I've ditched my old fishing glasses and use these now because the anti-glare and polarization is way better. Great product!

    Overall great!

    Great clarity, crystal clear. Feels more sturdy than any other pair I’ve had. Also, I tend to have glasses look either too big or too small on my head, these are the perfect fit.

    Sturdy glasses for a reasonable price

    These are awesome so far. The matte tortoise look get compliments all the time and they are really sturdy, which is awesome for constant use. It's clear the lens quality is top-notch as well.

Design Details

  • Inspiration

    The JS Bannister was inspired by Sir Roger Bannister, who is most known for his athletic accomplishments as a mid-distance runner and for being the first person to break the 4-minute mile barrier. His unconventional and relatively light training regiment made him an unlikely success in the sport, which he set many records. In addition to his athletic achievements, Bannister practiced medicine as a neurologist and made various contributions to the field throughout his lengthy career.

  • Design

    The JS Bannister Tortoise boasts a classic Italian tortoise frame with yellow gold accents. The matte finish produces a humble yet sophisticated look, and polarized brown lenses complement the amber frame to create a well-coordinated and stylish design.

  • Frame

    The frames are crafted from a high-grade Italian cellulose acetate, and each frame is individually hand-polished and assembled. German-engineered 5-barrel hinges and screws are used to retain smooth movement for years to come, and a wire core extends from hinges to support temple shape.

  • Lenses

    Our lenses are made from an impact resistant CR-39 that provides incredible durability and exceptional visual clarity. Polarized lenses come standard, and all lenses include optimal protection by blocking 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Lenses also have an anti-scratch hard coating to reduce damage and an anti-reflection coating to reduce glare.
