Description

Reach for the sky.

This town isn't big enough for two stylish aviators, and guess who's coming out on top: that's right, the Smith Showdown Polarized Sunglasses. They may be lightweight, but the stamped stainless steel construction ensures that they're going to be the ones dishing out the punishment, not taking it. Precision polarization eliminates glare, while the wrap-around style provides extra coverage. The Showdown's adjustable silicone nose pads sit comfortably on your nose, while hydrophilic megol temple pads ensure a secure fit even when you're facing down the competition.

I lost a lens from my Smith Serpico sunglases. Where do I send them for repair?

Responded on

Since replacement lenses are not sold separately you are probably going to want to contact the Smith Warranty Department at warranty@smithoptics.com. However, just a little heads up I do not believe the warranty covers lost lenses.

Superior Aviators

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Rock these bad boys and the ladies take notice. Super light, great optics and unparalleled style... typical Smith! Better fit than the Oakley Plaintiff (due to wrap) and lighter than Ray Ban's. No need to look further, pull the trigger Brah.

Smith Showdown Fresh Avaiators

The Smith Showdown Aviator Sunglasses are a great update to the classic aviator style. Nice and light, with a great fit for medium faces and of course excellent optics!
