The draw: Clarity in any light

These slick-looking shades feature Smith’s proprietary ChromaPop performance lens technology, which we found truly enhances both color and object definition. Each pair also comes with a rose-tinted lens to swap in for extra definition and clarity in low-light conditions. The lens is one large piece, to which both the nosepiece and arms attach and detach simply. The nosepiece, while not as easily adjustable as others, is comfortable and doesn’t slip. Nine lens and frame color combos are available, and you won’t have to worry about keeping them clean: The lenses have a coating that repels grease, dirt and water.
