Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses - Women's

You must have missed the memo.

We hate to break it to you, but those old sunglasses you're wearing went out of style a few years back. Put on the Smith Lowdown Slim Sunglasses and get your fashion sense up to date. The carbonic TLT lens corrects light distortion, giving you the maximum optical clarity you've been missing all these years. The Evolve frame is made from 53% bio-based material, giving them a lightweight, comfortable fit. Can you other sunglasses say that? The Megol nose pads keep these sunglasses in place, and the cat-eye frame shape means you can look great in this time period, not the one that existed a decade ago.

Best I've Owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I got the black/impossibly black ones. Although these are listed as "women's" they are unisex and are great for smaller faces. Most sunglasses in this style are slightly large on my face, so I gave the slims a try. I'm glad I did, they fit great! I've never bought glasses over $20 before these, so I was hesitant to spend the extra cash. No regrets at all with these.

Stays on my face

The perfect hybrid active/fashion sunglasses. Stays put on my face even when bending over - love the color combo. Perfect size for women's faces.

Great Glasses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just as sweet as the standard lowdown but for smaller faces. Big fan of the sol-x lens for sunny days. Can't go wrong with these.

Universal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These sun glasses are awesome. I wore them last weekend in my triathlon biking portion, and they were really clutch with the sun coming in my eyes. They're really universal. I originally bought them for boarding, but their use extended far beyond. Great for small faces :D I bought the white pair.

Lowdown

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the Smith Lowdown sunglasses so much, I'm on my third pair. They are not too wide or big, so they are perfect for a smaller face. I've worn them both casually, as well as hiking, touring, etc. They are very durable, and do not show any wear from using during activities. They also tend to stay in place really well.

Rad Shades!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are my go-to pair of sunglasses. They are not too big, yet provide plenty of coverage to protect your retinas from the sun. They also have rubber where the sunglasses sit on the bridge of your nose, designed to keep them on your face no matter how hard you are shredding.

Perfect for small faces!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

LOVE these sunnies. Lightweight, rad, nice nose pads - and narrow enough for small faces like mine. I purchased the white with red lenses and they are very similar to the photos provided in terms of hue. Happy overall - time to get these babies out on the water!

She loves them

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I gave these as a gift to my GF and she absolutely loves them, they have replaced her ray bans as her everyday sunglasses

Great sunnies!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I got the Smith Lowdown Slim in White Fade/Tortoise Brown color and really like them! I was a bit worried that they would be too narrow for my face - I don't have a small face but really liked the color combo and it wasn't available in the regular Lowdown size, so I took a $40 gamble on these. Well they fit great! When trying them on I was worried they might be a little snug, but after wearing them for my daily commute and around town they feel comfortable. The nose bridge and padding is perfect - these don't get tangled in my hair the way wire frame aviators do. They seem well made and are lightweight. The lenses are really good quality and make colors really pop and add a little contrast to scenery. These come with a little microfiber baggie to keep the lenses protected. Plus they look awesome. I am really happy with my purchase.

Side note: My boyfriend bought a pair of Smith sunglasses and is on his 3rd pair because the lenses keep delaminating BUT Smith replaces them for free every time. So the lifetime warranty and customer service are excellent, and he recommended I get a pair of Smith frames. He also likes how these look on me!

Great sunnies!

Great Adventure Shades

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have been on the hunt for a pair of all-around adventure sunglasses and I'm pleased to say the search is OVER. I got a pair of Oakleys last summer and they were too big for my face and kept sliding down when biking or running. These are great because of the slim fit! They fit my face well, work well for hiking, biking and running, and they are cute enough to wears round town, so they are great when you only want to bring one pair of shades on a weekend trip. Only two downsides I've experienced, but not dealbreakers by any means: On slightly rainy days, these have fogged up on me when hiking, which is a bit annoying. And if I have them on my head and bend over, they have fallen to the ground, but they are solid, so no marks or damage.

Stoked Mother

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for my mother because she tried on my Lowdowns and they looked really good on her. The sightly smaller version was the perfect fit for her small face.

Awesome Shades!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for my wife and she loves them. Shades fit extremely well and are very comfortable.

The slim style is great if you have a small/medium face.

Great sunglasses

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

gave these to my GF as a gift and they have replaced her Ray Bans as her everyday sunnies. She absolutely loves them.

what more could a girl ask for?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

bought these shades for my wife who has a very hard time finding glasses that fit her. She has a small face and after trying many styles she finally found these and she loves them. Only problem is that now she wants one in every color.

Sweet Shades

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second pair of these sunglasses. I beat up my first pair after a year of climbing and biking in. Stylish plastic glasses that can take a beating!

Damn Ma, you Stylin'

Got these for mi Madre, she loves the "White Fade Tortise Brown" colorway. She'll be skiing in style with these large frames.

Like 'em, Don't Love 'em

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought the crystal red/purple sol-x pare. The colors are less intense and bright in person. The purple is not as noticeable in real life as it is in the picture. Also, the plastic is not as thick or nice as I had hoped. They are still pretty cool looking, the plastic has held up surprisingly well, & the lenses are good. I was hoping; however, that because they are women's glasses, they would be a bit smaller. I have a small head & face & these sunglasses are always slipping off and falling to the ground. Still, they are durable, work well, and, as I said, pretty cool looking.

fav look!

    I've had THREE pairs of these glasses. I love them. I've only had to purchase three because I'm really good at misplacing them. They stay on my head for snowboarding, touring, hiking, climbing, biking- you name it. Super cute and fun colors!

    sweet and stylin'

    These glasses have a nice snug fit for my wife's tiny head so she can put them up on her head without them falling off. Also the two tone frames are a great way to spice up glasses that would otherwise resemble the more standard ray ban wayfarer style.
