Pilot aviators have transcended time, leaving an indelible mark on American culture. From the daring World War I fighter pilots to the silver screens of Hollywood hits like Top Gun and Taxi Driver, these iconic shades have become a symbol of timeless style. Now, Huckberry pays homage to the sunglasses used in the Apollo 11 survival kits with their exclusive American Optical Original Pilot Sunglasses.
Drawing inspiration from the Air Force FG-58 model, these sunglasses have been meticulously recreated to capture the essence of the original pilot sunglasses. As a testament to their authenticity, they have been crafted using details from the pilot sunglasses displayed in the prestigious Smithsonian Museum.
These aviators feature a unique temple colorway available exclusively at Huckberry, ensuring that you stand out from the crowd. The white carrying case is a faithful replica of the 1969 glasses case, adding a touch of nostalgia to your eyewear collection.
Not compromising on performance, these sunglasses are built with SkyMaster glass lenses, providing superior clarity and scratch resistance. The 23K gold-plated frames exude luxury, while the true-color gray tint reduces eye fatigue in bright light conditions.
