OUR STORY

The Step into the world of UrbanSunnies, where every journey begins with a simple yet profound realization. In the bustling year of 2020, our visionary founder embarked on a quest fueled by a desire for perfection in sporting eyewear. It was a realization born from personal frustration – the fit, shape, and style of existing sport sunglasses fell short, unable to keep pace with the demands of high-intensity activities.

Picture this: a leap, a bound, a moment suspended in mid-air, only to be disrupted by sunglasses slipping out of place or, worse yet, shattering upon impact. Our founder experienced firsthand the shortcomings of traditional eyewear – either exorbitantly priced or lacking in durability – and knew there had to be a better way.

Thus, UrbanSunnies emerged from the crucible of necessity, dedicated to reshaping the landscape of athletic optics. With a steadfast commitment to innovation, our brand set out to redefine the very essence of performance eyewear. No longer would athletes be forced to compromise between form and function, style and substance.

At the heart of UrbanSunnies lies a promise: to deliver sunglasses meticulously crafted to provide a bespoke fit and tailored style adjustments. Drawing inspiration from the resilience of traditional sunglasses designed for athletes, we imbue each pair with a fusion of strength and sophistication, elevating the sporting experience to new heights.

But our journey doesn't end there. It's not just about creating exceptional eyewear; it's about forging connections, sparking conversations, and inspiring change. UrbanSunnies is more than a brand; it's a movement, a testament to the power of passion and perseverance.

So, join us as we rewrite the narrative of sporting excellence, one pair of sunglasses at a time. Experience the UrbanSunnies difference – where innovation meets ingenuity, and every adventure begins with a vision. This is more than just eyewear; this is UrbanSunnies.
