First introduced 50 years ago to give French Olympic skiers get an edge on the slopes, the Glacier XL sunnies by Vuarnet have since been adopted by everyone from legendary explorers to famous British spies.

007 himself, even, wears a pair when saving the world in Spectre during the snow-clad chase scene shot in Sölden, Austria. And though hand to hand combat training and an impeccable wardrobe help the look, a contagious sense of adventure is all you really need to pull these off.

Vuarnet's polarized, anti-reflective mineral glass lenses are made in France in their own factory and are not only scratch and shock-resistant but block harmful UV light, blue light and infrared light. And for those who don't want to channel their inner secret agent all the time, the removable glacier shields (which on top of looking downright cool help protect against glares) are indeed removable.
