Some lucky sailor is going to win the ultimate sailing sunglasses!

VALLON is a performance eyewear company founded in Verier, and dedicated to producing best-in-class sports sunglasses ans snow goggles, without compromising on classic style. 

Designed in-house by the VALLON team, the Malizia have a base-8 wraparound curve frame made from 85% recycled fishing nets. This leading sustainable material is an ultra-durable nylon 6, providing the right balance of strength and flexibility for all-day comfort. 

Working with Boris Herrmann, and Team Malizia, selecting a material that balanced sustainability with the capacity to withstand the world's harshest sailing conditions was essential - along with excellent optics. The Malizia are built with VALLON's proprietary polarized V52® lens technology which offers the highest optical clarity for nylon sports performance lenses on the market. 

The sunglasses are delivered in plastic-free packaging, including a red sports retainer and clip-on cushioned protective case - perfect for rough days at sea.

With every pair of Malizia sold, VALLON donates 10 mangrove seedlings to the Malizia Mangrove Park. And for every pair of eyewear sold by VALLON, 1kg of plastic is cleaned up and recycled from ocean shores worldwide. 

Tested day-in and day-out by Team Malizia during their rigorous Ocean Racing calendar, the Malizia are proving to be a professional skipper's best friend!
