Top Gun was the highest grossing film of 198s and introduced us to the phrase “I feel the need….The need for speed”. The film was successful for two main reasons, high action and some badass sunglasses, Ray-Ban<sup>®</sup> sunglasses, to be exact. Top Gun was also the kick start to Tom Cruise and Val Kilmers careers and ever since, the two have them have been pretty much stuck in the spotlight,

Ray-Ban® Aviator sunglasses were never meant to be the fashion statement they are today, they were actually made to protect pilots eyes in the 1930’s. The technology in the lenses made sure that UV rays didn’t bother the pilots and the lenses themselves are curved which makes sure that as little light as possible actually reaches the eye. Over time, they style has gone on to be one of the best-selling sunglasses designs in history, thanks in no small part to their use in films like Top Gun. See, there’s a reason why they’re called Aviator sunglasses after all. Check out a whole range of Ray-Ban® Aviator sunglasses on the VisionDirect website.
