8000Eyewear continues to explore the history of eyewear through the eyes of pioneers who would cross limits to set contemporary parameters in the activity they choose to engage. 8000Eyewear is broadening it’s focus from the summit to the finish line. From the world of the first mountaineers, who set out to climb the 14 highest peaks above 8000 meters, to car racers who tested longitudinal limits through speed. The historic “MILLE MIGLIA” race track in Italy in the shape of an 8, extended across Italy for 1000 miles draws reference to the namesake. Seizing inspiration from areas where performance was crucial for survival, adding cutting edge technology and using the highest performing modern day materials, 8000Eyewear is exceeding the past and moving beyond present into the future.

OTTOMILA is italian for 8000. The name has infinite meanings, some of them yet to be explored. It references the 14 highest peaks in the world, with an altitude greater than 8000 meters above sea level. These peaks are also known as the eight-thousanders or "gli Ottomila". The collection “8000 METRI” is inspired by the mountaineers of the 1930’s, pioneers on expeditions towards unexplored frontiers. With eyewear crafted by hand using the highest quality flat glass lens and function broken down to the essentials, they dared the sun and its reflections. Almost a century later, in a different setting, the aim is strikingly similar; "To provide the best quality filter for your eyes in the most functional light frame" The color tones are similarly elemental: silver, gold, graphite, and carbon. The eyewear is crafted entirely by hand in Italy, with an obsessive attention to detail, quality, and form which includes: – The ultra-flat tempered mineral glass lens with anti-reflex treatment. – The light weight stainless steel frame to guarantee maximum comfort and flexibility, while being resistant to stress and wear. – The case, hand crafted in Italy with genuine leather. An integral part of the product that serves as a protective glove, minimizing the volume of the eyewear when not operated. All end tips are adjustable to provide maximum comfort and stability.EXPLORE
