The Wayfarer is one of the most iconic replica sunglasses shapes out there, strong enough to support a million variations on the original. Which is exactly why Ray Ban outlet decided to bring a little ’60s style into the mix with the cult-classic Meteor. If you missed it the last couple of times it came around, worry not: It’s back today for an extremely limited time and in a painfully limited edition as the third installment of its replica Ray Ban Reloaded line of rare reissues.
Ray-Ban’s website and select flagship stores are now stocking the Meteor in three colorways: Shiny Black with black lenses, Shiny Havana with brown gradient lenses, and Shiny Striped Havana with lenses in the greenish-brown B15 tint. The two tortoiseshell variants exude vintage Hollywood attitude, while the black-on-black option giving off heavy jazz vibes.
If you want to cop some of this mid-century cool for yourself you’ll have to act fast. The Meteor Reloaded edition’s are limited to only 200 pairs that means for all three colorways combined – it seems likely that they won’t even make it that long. Get moving.
