Bolle have been crafting premium sports sunglasses for over 100 years, and their unparalleled experience has ensured that Bolle is a name athletes rightly trust to deliver superior optics.

There is no compromise on comfort, function and durability with Bolle sunglasses. Bolle are committed to developing: lightweight, shatterproof lenses; flexible, virtually indestructible Hydralon frames; and advanced, sport-specific lens technology to offer exceptional sports vision. This has resulted in Bolle possessing one of the strongest reputations in sports eyewear.

The Bolle story began in the small town of Oyonnax, France in 1888. There Seraphim Bollé started his company by first manufacturing combs and hair ornaments for the boxwood and horn indigenous to the region. After WWII, Bolle led the way in molding nylon to the highest standards in the world. Safety glasses and goggles were added to the Bolle line in 1950 and in 1956 Georges Bollé created the famous nylon 'cat-eye' sunglass. And in 1960, ski goggles were first marketed by Bolle. Leading the industry in product innovations, the Bollé family took the business from a small cottage industry to one of the world's most prominent manufacturers of premium eyewear.

Now, over 100 years later, Bolle eyewear is distributed and worn all over the world. Bolle has developed particular strength in the sports specialty markets of snow sports, golf, tennis, and marine, as well as sunglasses that meet everyday needs and styles.
