This is the brand new Ray Ban Wayfarer Colorize kit. It is probably prettyobvious from the picture what the purpose of this kit is. Ray Ban designed this kit that comes with a pair of white Wayfarer’s as well some markers that allow you to customize the colors or designs of the shades as you please. Ray Ban has released several pairs of Wayfarers but this is by far the most creative. If you are an artist or have any artistic skill at all this would be a great kit for you, if you are not so talented you might want to get someone to do the customizing for you. [Thehundreds]

Even though the French were hatin on Michael Phelps and the crew, saying “The Americans? We’re going to smash them. That’s what we came here for.” And even though we copped gold, I’m still going to give a courtesy tip-of-the-hat to the French for some dope sunglasses. Check out their whole line.
The oldschool rayban look has really exploded this season. At first, I would just see people wearing them at parties at night, but then they seemed to catch on all over the place. AS WITH ANY TREND, if you are going to get on the bandwagon, you MUST BE FRESHER than everyone else trying to pull off the same look. Don’t worry, Sneakhype’s got your back… cop some of these Oakley Frogskins, and everyone will be like “Ah… man, where did you get those? I’ve never even heard of them. Those are so fresh.” And you will of course, reply… “I hadn’t heard of them either, but I saw them on my favorite website in the world: sneakhype.com — they got the leak on all the flyest gear. But, yes, they are mad fresh, and thank you.“
