& INSPIRED BY
Our Spring 2021 lookbook is inspired by a few incredible athletes from our hometown of Austin, Texas, and many more around the world. Whether it’s a sweaty yoga flow, an intense bodyweight strength training series, sprints on a track or a bike ride through the streets of L.A., these athletes know how to push themselves to the limit—so we ask them to push our eyewear to the limits, too, to ensure they’ll stand up to any challenge.
