Form and Function | Article One have partnered with Tracksmith, a Boston-based running brand, to create a technical frame built for speed and designed for everyday wear. Inspired by the Tracksmith team’s favorite daily routes and named for the river that guides their runs, this frame is a result of our mutual desire to create something equally engineered and elegant.
Crafted in Italy, Meet The Charles.
The Charles is made with TR90 polymer plastic, an incredibly lightweight and hypoallergenic material made to hold it’s shape after contouring to your face. Tonal silicone nose pads are made to grip and hold – with a wire core skeleton you can squeeze tight during a workout, and let loose afterward. Silicone pads wrap around your ear for additional comfort and grip.
The frame includes Divel, Italian-made, CR-39 Polarized lenses that block 100% of UVA/UVB rays and prevent road glare, plus we gave the back side an extra anti-refective coating to counteract any refection coming from your eye.
