They've got Carbonic TLT lenses, which prevent eye fatigue and provide you with maximum comfort, and feature Smith s Evolve frame material, which is 53% bio-based. So not only are you seeing everything with 100% accuracy, you're also wearing some of the most eco-friendly, lightweight and durable frames that the industry has to offer right now. 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

Lens

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.

Frame

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.

I have a small frame face... I normally find myself shopping in the youth/child section, but the quality of children glasses is not the same. So, while playing around on the smith website, I saw the option to filter small face for my sunglasses search and the lowdown slim popped up. I read a few reviews and looked through a couple of pictures and thought i'd give them a shot. I actually purchased 2 sets: Chroma pop and the impossibly black. The Chroma pop are a little more expensive, but completely worth the cost. The frame material seems rock solid and the Chroma pop is amazing. My favorite glasses to date. The impossibly black are cheaper and do not contain the chroma pop, but I love them none-the-less. They are my sport (bike, longboard) glasses that I use if there is a chance of them falling (or me). The Chroma pop are my casual-general use glasses.

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

By 

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!

The ChromaPop is amazing!!!!! But the fit of the frame is a little loose and is already stretching out.

great fit for a woman

By 

from montana

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I loved these sunglasses from the minute I saw them on the model on the Smith website. I was hesitant to order them since so many spoke of glasses for "small" faces. I have an average sized woman's face and they fit just great. I love having glasses that don't slide down my nose when I bend over.

Lightweight & Stylish

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

Lightweight, comfortable, and stylish glasses. Solid build and nice fit. Where the original Lowdowns felt a little too big for my face; these are perfect. The main contact points (bridge and behind the ear) are snug without being tight so the glasses stay in place comfortably. I liked them so much I ended up purchasing a second pair in a different color!

Great fit for a smaller head

By 

from Northeastern Oregon

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I love sunglasses that stay on my face, and these are great. Lightweight, so they don't dig in to the sides of my face too much. Great fit, although they do sit a little high on my nose. Will be buying these again once I wear these ones out!

Best sunglasses I've purchased

By 

from Idaho, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I'm more than satisfied with the Lowdown Slim sunglasses. I have a relatively small head and ears so finding a pair of sunglasses that fit is usually difficult. These fit perfectly. The nose pads dont feel like they are sticking to my skin like most other padded nose pieces do. I love the lighweight frame and the Chromapop Polorized Brown lens cuts down on the glare flawlesly and I dont even notice I have them on. The Chromapop lens is great and helps with eye fatigue on sunny days hiking or on the water fishing. They are still stylish while being functional. Great buy!

Great quality sunglasses

By 

from Seattle, WA, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses:

I love these glasses! A little snug on my head but I like it as these are my "active" glasses that I wear when attempting to be active...so they don't fall off. I really like the rubber nose pads, keeps them on my head when bangin' my head to jams. The amber glass is super clear and I swear it makes an overcast day look lighter. My only sadness is these did not come with a hard case. They are lightweight but don't feel cheap. Also I'm female so I choose the slim to look more proportionate to my head, so I recommend trying on at a store before buying online :D

Light and comfortable!

By 

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!

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!

Perfect for spending all day outside

By 

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.
