John Fluevog Shoes first opened its doors forty-five years ago on the West Coast. Ten years after that to the day, l.a. Eyeworks burst onto the scene. Coincidence? Impossible. Since then, scholars have unanimously held true that if l.a. Eyeworks made footwear, they would look like Fluevogs and vice versa.

Featuring a hand-finished acetate frame with a matte finish and stainless steel hinge, these UV400 protective shades commemorate Fluevog’s 45th year in shoe business. They include a custom cloth and case and will belong to a fairly exclusive club as there are only forty-five pairs available at select Fluevog stores (LA Melrose, LA Abbot Kinney, Seattle, Gastown, Granville, Calgary, Toronto Distillery and Toronto Queen).
