Had a blast at this past weekends Cavalcade of Customs car show in Cincinnati hanging out with Chad Boespflug Racing while he unveiled his 2013 graphics! The show was a great success. In addition to selling a bunch of shades, we got to meet a ton of cool folk and win a couple awards for our whips. Great time, already looking forward to next years show.
We are very happy to now have our Midwest Shades Logo Zip Hoodies in stock and ready for action. They are made of 50% polyester and 50% cotton preshrunk. Grab one today for only $40 right here.
We were lucky enough to sneep a couple pairs of Midwest Shades finest in our buddy Ritchy Tauzon's suitcase before he set off to paradise and boy was it a good idea. Ritchy is a ninja when it comes to capturing the potential of a photo opportunity. Here is the perfect example. This picture of a crispy pair of "Frank the Tank - Green Swag" is about as cool as they come. Ritchy is making some big moves in the photography world and we are stoked to have teamed up with such a telented dude.

The fall is by far the best time of the year and every year we try to capture that bit of awesomeness that turns out being October. This is one of our favorite pictures of some Midwest Shades basking in the autumn leaves. So go rake up some leaves into pile and yell canonball. This picture is of a fresh pair of "Baconator - Silver" $12.

We could not be any happier than for our sunglasses to be featured in a recent photo shoot for an awesome company, Rockerbands. Make sure you check them out and get you some. As you can tell from the picture they go great with Midwest Shades!
Midwest Shades has partnered up with 2 amazingly talented dudes living in the beautiful islands of Hawaii! Kekoa Fonseca seen in the picture above is a kickboxer, training at the prestigious BJ Penn gym. He embodies the spirit and commitment that we at Midwest Shades represent. He is helping us introduce the brand to the islands. The other dude, Shawn Pila is an extremely talented Hawaiian photographer who has proven that he is a natural behind the lens. We are very blessed to team up with these dudes and we look forward to a growing relationship!

Midwest Shades contacted one of our top photographers Chad Finni and sent him on a mission to get the radest pictures he could with these all gold Frank the Tanks. And he did just that! This picture was taken in downtown Cincinnati Ohio. To see more of Chad's Photography check him out at the link below:
