We design cool but classic shades and deliver them to members' doorsteps once a month, for as low as $15 a month

With nearly a quarter million dollars in pre-orders on Kickstarter, shadesclub™ has eclipsed its $20K goal and is racing down the stretch offering a last chance for backers to take advantage of early bird specials.

Garnering more than 2,000 total backers, the Kickstarter campaign officially closes at midnight on Saturday, January 16th leaving sunglass lovers with just a few days to get in on early bird specials at the shadesclub™ Kickstarter page.    

Commenting on the popularity of shadesclub™, company co-founder Rich Amundson explains: “It was our business model, plain and simple. We design cool but classic shades and deliver them to members' doorsteps once a month, for as low as $15 a month.”

Amundson and partner T.J. Eaton sought to offer consumers the opportunity to own a collection of designer shades that would sell for as much as $1,500 at the enormous mark-up prices offered by traditional eyewear retailers.

“Our backers recognized that this is the smartest way to discover and own the sunglasses collection they could never afford, but always wanted," said Eaton. "They get a pair for every outfit and occasion.”

  •     100% UVA/UVB Protection
