If you're looking for a medium fit and small coverage pair of shades, that also do their part to reduce environmental impact, the Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses are a top-notch option.

Product Details


Carbonic TLT Lenses When light passes through a medium it refracts, i.e. changes course. If left uncorrected, this refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith's Tapered Lens Technology (TLT) straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.

6 Base Lens CurvatureModels that include 6 base tend to be more flat relative to your face.


Evolve Frame MaterialSmith incorporates the revolutionary, Rilsan® Clear material into what has become the largest eco-friendly sunglass collection in the world. This material allows them to create lightweight, durable frames, that are over 53% bio-based. Rilsan® Clear is derived from the renewable, non-genetically modified castor plant. Characteristics of this material include flexibility, lightweight, high elasticity, remarkable toughness, and excellent chemical resistance. Most importantly, this material is not petroleum based. Why is 53% bio-based important? Through extensive testing and field trials, Smith has found the correct balance of materials required to sustain performance and durability, while reducing their environmental impact.

good lenses! frames could be better


from charleston, sc

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

whoa! easy on the eyes and colors really stand out. i got the black w/ grey polarized lenses about a month ago and they're great for all conditions. greenery is greener, skies and waters are bluer, haze and glare are cut to almost nothing, and best of all my eyes are cooly relaxed behind these in bright or low light. i tried the regular lowdown and a few other pairs but they were too big on me. i have a smaller dome so i have a hard time finding shades that fit right and these are the best fit i've found in this style. smith's own twist on the wayfarer is a great design for shrunken heads. the frames are lightweight which is nice for all day wear but the quality is lacking. first drop in the sand and the frames showed scratches. i've also noticed some stress marks on the arms where they meet the lens frame. some better quality material and improved hinge design would make these top notch. awesome glasses for the beach, pool, boat or just knocking around in though.

Great Quality, Perfect for Adventurous Athletes


from GR, MI

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I love the Lowdown slim because the original lowdowns are just too large on my face. These have a nice low profile fit and remind me of a lot of the popular styles you are seeing today from Ray Bans or Oakley. But I find these to be much better quality in the sense that they are geared for athletes and those who are adventurous! The arms on these are really flexible and durable which helps because they do not break easily and can be dropped or even stepped on with better chance of surviving. Furthermore the lenses are scratch resistant and that is awesome. i have dropped these on cement and rocks while hiking and they are still perfect shape. For the price, and life time warranty, absolutely would buy another pair. Thanks Smith!


Light and comfortable!


from CT

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I am obsessed with these sunglasses. I like to wear sunglasses when I run but hate the look of typical running sunglasses. I wanted a happy medium where function meets fashion and found it in the lowdown slim. They stay put and don't fog up even on the hottest and most humid days. I only wish they were available with Chromapop!


Comfortable and cool


from United States

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

Smith Lowdown Slim is the best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned! No doubt! These shades are comfortable, durable and cool! They have been all over place with me West Coast, Rocky Mountain and Centro America and I get compliments everywhere for them! Hiking, beachin' it, fishing, RZR rides and everything else a person can do these shades can do it with ya! Thanks Smith!


Best Ever

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

Best sunglasses ever. Don't ever stop making these. Now I'm just waiting or them to come out in chromapop.


Perfect for spending all day outside


from San Mateo, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

These glasses are amazing! I needed something small and light that I could take hiking with me and the Lowdown Slims are it. My eyes are relaxed and every color just looks better with these on. I haven't had any problems with durability. I keep them in the microfiber bag they come in but they haven't exactly been treated delicately on the trail and they still look new. I purchased the impossibly black frames with blackout lenses and if they ever discontinue these, I'm not sure I'll ever find a pair I like as much.
