AO Flight Goggle 58

American Optical have been around for a hell of a long time, they created the sunglasses used on the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts including Apollo 11, making them the first sunglasses on the moon. They were also standard issue to all US fighter pilots since the 1950s, quite possibly making them the coolest sunglasses in human history.

Initially called the “AO Flight Goggle 58” they’re now available to civilians, still made the same way as they were all the way back when John Glenn ruled the skies. They are especially good for motorcyclists as they are designed to be put on and taken off whilst wearing a helmet, I bought a pair for this very reason (and bragging rights).

Check them out here on Amazon for $73.oo.
