Bollé has resurrected one of its most iconic eyewear shapes and relaunched it for 2020. The original Chronoshield glasses can trace their history back to 1986 and had a design inspired by Bollé’s best selling Chrono ski goggle. As the trend for larger eyewear has increased over the last couple of years so it became ripe for Bollé to revamp one of the originators. The new Chronoshield glasses leave no doubt as to where their inspiration comes from but Bollé has given them a not so subtle revamp to bring them more up to date.
