District Vision’s variety of racing eyewear has been all the rage for the past few years, and several performance brands have admired its catalog just as much as we have. The eyewear maker’s latest collaboration partner is boutique brand Tracksmith, and the two have come together to design an all-new silhouette in the Kazu Tourer.
The Alpine-style goggle is inspired by ’70s performance goggles and Formula 1 style, with vented lenses, an encrusted titanium badge and integrated side shields. As well as being remarkably stylish, the Kazu Tourer is equipped with District Vision’s exclusive D+ therapeutic lenses. The eyewear was made in collaboration with Sucuk & Bratwurst, a Berlin-based design studio that helped accentuate the silhouette’s meticulous Japanese craftsmanship. This joint effort comes in a pair of colors, Glacier and Tortoise Copper, the latter featuring polarized D+ Copper lenses.
Additionally, this polarized anti-glare treatment also allows just 10.03% visible light transmission and approximately 6% blue light transmission, while Glacier’s Blue Ice lens allows just north of 21% for these two categories. Still, either option you choose will block 100% of UVA/UVB rays, so rest assured the sun won’t be a concern. The anti-glare sunglasses feature a water and oil repellent protective treatment, as well as a fully adjustable rubber nose pad and temple tips to ensure a perfect fit.
If you’re looking for a great pair of racing sunglasses, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything better than this. The collaboration between District Vision and Tracksmith is now available on the latter’s online store, with the non-polarized Glacier priced at $250 and the polarized Tortoise Copper priced at $295.
