Smith's Method Polarized give you big wrap-around frames with glare-cutting polarized lenses.
The Smith Super Method Polarized Sunglasses let you focus on the facts by cutting out the glare. Any bright flat surface overloads your retinas with too much information, meaning you can't clearly see the road or the wakeboarder you're supposed to be spotting. Smith's distortion-free optics in the Super Method Sunglasses filter out the extra light so you can see what's going on. The Super Method's big wrap-around frame also blocks ambient light so you're eyes can relax.

Great for town, the mountain and the water!
These are my goto shades if you can only have 1 pair these work well.
Awesome sunglasses. Sat on my last pair and had to get another. Fit great, look good, no squinting, polarized, and durable (unless you 6'4'' and sit on them). Use them for offshore fishing. Traded in my costa del mar's for these frames.
These glasses have been my frame of choice for the past 3 mtn. bike seasons. They stay on my face and the Polarized lenses keep my eyes on the trail. Although, they do start to fog a little bit when I stop to take a breather.
really nice shape
besides the sick optics, I love the shape of these. I think they would look good on just about anyone!! They are good option for those who want some bling sunglasses that are super functional and not to over the top and flashy. An easy 5 star favorite!
super methods on vacation
cuzco cuzco cuzco!
Just got these from s&c and they are some pretty sick shades you just have to be prepared for the boxey look if thats what your going for along with some shadey that will not let go of your face in an active setting they are for you
full frame and still lighty
great shades. nice full size frame thats light. other glasses I've had squeezed my head too much. these I can wear all day long.
Good looking, actual performance in the sun is reasonable. FYI I have a sz XL (59-62) head and the frames pinch a bit alongside my ears and temple. Other than that, slick.
these glasses look sick, feel great, and block so much sun. if you gotta fat head like me, these are the ones for you
Awesome glasses, AWESOME coverage
This shades prevent ANY leakage of light into my eyes. If you have a larger face and need mad coverage, get them, you wont be disappointed. Go polarized, or go home
how green is green?? on the green...
how green is green?? on the green stripe?
It's hard to explain how green something is, but maybe try searching for these on the internet to find other pictures. Usually the picture is pretty accurate though in determining how it's going to look when you actually get them.
Favorite glasses of all time
So no matter what crazy trendy glasses I get or crazy colored ones I inevitably always come back to these. I have had a few pair and you can't beat the coverage they give while still being super stylie. Always a favorite.
The Super Methods are Super Sick
These are by far the best pair of sunglasses I've worn that were at some point re-birthed from the river. Once I scrubbed the muck and grime from the lenses, I was blocking those harsh UV rays from my lady-killer eyes. And, the lenses don't even show any signs of abuse. Sweet! Now I wanna upgrade to some polarized lenses. Gotta keep raking in those gratuities on the river!
Excellent and comfortable
Great all around glasses. Have used them for hiking, skiing and biking. Lightweight and comfortable, they also fit a larger sized head without putting pressure on the temple/ear area.
Excellent glasses all-around! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for polarized glasses that can be worn for virtually everything with no problem. The polarized lenses' optical quality is top-notch - great for days on the water, driving or riding your bike. The Super Methods are lightweight and quite durable - I haven't had issues with them slipping off - add some Croakies and you'll never have to worry. The fit is what I would describe as med to med-wide and the coverage is generous.
Wife's happy - I'm happy
I got a pair of these for my wife. She loves them. They also have the benefit of being polarized, along with the wrap around design, which reduce glare - yet remain stylish.
Are the Super Methods for male or...
Are the Super Methods for male or female?
I'm the smith rep and it seems we get this question a lot. The first response is glasses are made for people to rock!!! If you can rock it, you can wear it. Typically this is a med to large frame and most men seem to prefer this, as opposed to the method, the slightly smaller piece. However just because you have a small or larger head doesn't really mean they are male or female, it means wear what fits.DakkaGuru says: Temple to Temple= 7"lens width= 2.5"lens height= 1 3/4"arm length= 4 3/4"
I've found the frame to be a little small for me when chillin' on the town or beach (I'm a guy, large head) because I like a bigger, fatter looking style. But as a technical shade (ski touring or hiking) the smaller frame gives me a closer fit, I notice them less, and I can move more freely without them bouncing which is nice.
I think its a classic design that will be around for a while.
For the record- I am not the Smith rep, This question was written when the Q/A portion of this site was all done with wiki. I made an adjustment to the original comment posted by the Smith rep, I just included the measurements. Have a good day.
I don't know what the other person commenting on these is talking about! I got these and they are the best. The lenses are really good and in Ak, the sun glares really bad on the ice and the glasses always fix it. They are comfy, and they look super nice and fit well too. 5 stars!
I thought these would be a great pair of stylish, large sunglasses with the great benefit of being polarized! Instead they made me look like a granny! The large, wraparound frame was not flattering. My boyfriend tried them on and they looked better on him. Still not worth the money.
