Smith Forum Sunglasses Reviews:


I'm someone who needs more than a bit of coverage in sunglasses as I have wider eyes than normal. When I tried the Smith Forum Sunglasses - Polarized, I found that the fit and optics of the grilamid frame and polarized lens were Smith's usual above normal quality and durability. The frame shape itself left me wanting though as the lens height was too narrow for my eye shape. A shame too, as they did look pretty good on me even with that issue. If you have a medium to narrow eye shape, give these a shot for sure.

Surprisingly lightweight, but they feel sturdy enough.
Polarized lenses do exactly what they're supposed to: nearly eliminate glare off reflective surfaces / water. Shades have just enough coverage around the sides for bright Utah sunny days. Nose and temple pads are insanely grippy.
I have a pretty large head / face and these fit nearly perfect. A little close to the eyes, but I don't have any issues with eyelashes dragging on the inside of the lenses. Sounds weird I know, but wear enough shades and you'll experience this eventually IMO.
Thumbs up.

I have always tried on a million sunglasses before buying, but Because I was familiar with Smith Optics, I took a chance and ordered them from Zappos. I'm so glad I did and they were perfect right out of the box. Love these glasses! Great price for polarized glasses too. The shape is beautiful without looking "bug eyed", which some fashion glasses look like these days! Thank you Zappos for your continued exceptional service, and offering such great products.

Good for casual wear

Great for casual wear, driving, hiking etc.

Terrible for road riding. The glasses shape make some kind of weird vortex that shoots wind right in your eyes when flying downhill.

Worst glare and ghosting I've ever had on sunglasses. Look slightly off angle to the sun and ghosting pops up in the field of vision.

favorite sunglasses hands down!

I LOVE this shades. So much so I keep buying them after I lose a pair and bought 2 colors in them! I wear them casually and as sport glasses. The rubber tips keep them steady on your head even biking and paddling. The lenses are great in low to high light conditions.

These are made so symmetrically that I realized my nose is crooked. Too many face-plants.
Polarized lenses do their job. However the lenses aren't as tall as I'd like, so they don't cover my eyebrows like I'd prefer. My fault though I tried them on at REI before-hand.

This is a classic Smith Sunglass. Fits great,lightweight and one of those styles you can wear Mt Biking in the day and to a wedding at night. Love em!

Optically perfect, blocks peripheral light, no backside reflection, comfortable, durable and a lifetime warranty. At least as good as the status brands for half the price.

I wear these daily for driving, but also other casual recreational activities. I like the larger size lens that is polarized.
