Wiley X sunglasses were designed in 1986 to produce shatterproof eye gear to U.S. Military Special Forces and law enforcement agencies nationwide. Some models of Wiley X sunglasses have actually been tested to withstand a 12 gauge shotgun blast from 10 yards away. Currently, they are a standard issue item with the FBI, D.E.A., Army Rangers, Navy Seal Teams and Military Special Forces in the U.S.
In 1990, Wiley X sunglasses began filling the hole in the need for quality shatterproof eye gear in various retail markets where “impact resistance” is most important, including athletics. They currently supply eyewear and accessories to custom motorcycle shops, general sporting goods, sports shooting, golf, sunglass and extreme sports retailers across the globe.
