These aptly named shades feature clip-on, polarized lenses that allow you to alter your look depending on the weather, or your mood. The frame on the Alcatraz polarized sunglasses from Spy comes standard with tapered temples and is constructed of a durable, handmade acetate.
Pro Tip: Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for driving, where you get glare from your dash, your windshield and other vehicles. They perform much better than standard sunglasses – reducing eye strain and helping you see better – around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
