Bail Out: Summer Fun

If you really love the look of the classic Ray Ban WayFarer, there is a good chance that you will like Kreed's Bail Out. It has the same retro look with more of a modern touch to it. With the classic frame, the Bail Outs have a 'narrower' look to it (the modern touch), which is good for those who have high cheek-bones (like me) and who don't like to have the bottom of the frame rest upon them.
I gave a pair to my friend Sean who told me later that he loves them and that he'll wear them everyday at his summer fun job.

Another alternative of the same style is the Pay Ups which is closer in design to the Ray Ban WayFarers.

Here are a couple of pictures of Sean rock'n the Bail Outs. Get your self a pair here.

"An epic and incredible day of racing as the DP Racing warriors overcame adversity and other Baja challenges to take 4th Place in Open Pro Class 22 in the Tecate/SCORE Baja 500 off-road race.

Kreed x Oahu North Shore Lifeguards

"In the North Shore's seven-mile stretch of some of the world's best surfspots, there are five full-time lifeguard towers.

"It's like we're sitting at a red light, just waiting for an accident to happen," said veteran lifeguard Mark Dombroski, 56, who has worked on theNorth Shore for 35 years. "You just gotta do the best you can to control the situation, but in reality, the situation is out of control. On a good day at 'Ehukai, with clean conditions and overhead surf, there could be up to 500 people in the water. That's not counting the hordes of spectators on the beach."

Mark Dombroski, head of the North Shore lifeguards, (famous father of our favorite Hawaii Crush girl, Brooke Dombroski) and the North Shore Lifeguard Association wear KREED polarized eyewear as their polarized eyewear of choice! The North Shore lifeguards understand how important it is to have glare reducing polarized sunglasses for their life saving profession and they wear KREED polarized eyewear because they love the product and it works for them. This adds HUGE credibility to our already great polarized eyewear collection and testifies to the fact that you don't have to pay $100+ to get the same eyewear that ranks with the best in both fit, polarization and optical quality! Look for a special announcement in association with the North Shore lifeguards and KREED polarized eyewear coming soon!

Summertime and the livin's easy... especially with the LTD-5's

I've been wearing these Kreed LTD-5's for a couple of weeks and I have to say that I really love it. These are the perfect summer shades and let me tell you why!
•  First, they are polarized. Polarized are the best especially for the beach be cause they cut down the glare significantly. With polarized lenses you can see straight through the water which is important for lifeguards. Also with the glare gone it allows colors to show brighter. No reflected glare and brighter colors = WIN.
•  Secondly, the LTD-5 doesn't make the world look like night. I've worn shades where the lenses make everything seem like the sun is setting at 2 in the afternoon. These shades have it just right.
•  Lastly, they are sturdy yet lightweight. Working as a lifeguard I've found that heavy sunglasses take a toll after several hours of wearing them causing headaches and a sore nose bridge. I don't even notice the LTD-5's even after wearing them for the entire day!

Get yourself a pair of the LTD-5 at the Kreed store website!
