About Shades of Norway
Founded 2009 in Glendale Arizona by a Norwegian MBA student at Thunderbird, Shades of Norway is a Norwegian sunglass brand that designs eyewear to fit specific people, places, and events with ties to Norway. Sold in Norway since 2010.
Our first model was Fornebu, a modern aviator made as an homage to the original Norwegian airport. The second model was Lofoten, is a pair of sporting sunglasses made for fishing, mountain trips and biking. This model comes with 4 different lens types to accommodate all the different weather conditions in Lofoten Norway. After these two models we have made Oppland, Sola, Aurora Polaris, the Diamond collection goggles, racing glasses for the first ever woman Formula 1 boat racing world champion (Norwegian offcource). And we have partnered with MIX Diskerud, a Norwegian American soccer player for NY and the USA national team, to make SoHo, Phoenix and Oslo.
We use the best Norwegian designers, quality materials and put them together to produce a little part of Norway in Eyewear. Shades of Norway is made to tackle some of the harshest sun conditions in the world, while looking great.
We urge you to find the Norwegian in you, and see the world through Shades of Norway.
The world looks brighter when viewed from the top of the world.
Shades of Norway is finally available in the USA from 2016 and we hope to bring a little piece of Norwegian fashion and function to the people that helped make the dream of starting a business come true.
