Our review

Style and performance make the Bollé’s a great choice
Pros: Comfortable, stylish and available with prescription
Cons: Frame visible in peripheral vision

Bollé’s Shifter follows the trend for single shield lenses and has a modern-yet retro feel to the design.

The sweep lens is very well vented and the robust frame reassuringly grips your head, and combined with the pliable nosepiece means these-stay put on the bumpy stuff.

The arms are kinked at the temple, which naturally angles the glass downwards, and the arms are relatively short too.

On the road you can see plenty of frame in your peripheral vision but I never found it obtrusive.

The red tinted lens called Vermillion Gun uses Bollé’s Phantom tech, which means an anti-fogging treatment and the NXT material is much more impact resistant than a regular lens, clarity is great and they take the knocks too.

While these are by no means the most expensive shades on the market they do feel very premium and with decent accessories included and a proper prescription option too.
