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:
This is a great picture sent in by David of a pair of "Frank the Tank - Platinum" at the Narada Falls in Mount Rainier National Park in Washington.
You have to check this video out! Not only is our dude Chad Boespflug in the video wearing Midwest Shades but this video is really put together well. I have watched it about 5 times and every time i get goosebumps. These drivers and their teams put it all on the line! Indiana sprint week 2012!
Its been really amazing watching Graeme Burress grow as a wakeboarder and a person over the last couple years. He is truly able to do whatever he decides he wants to do, and he does it with mass style and ease. We are very proud for him to wear the Midwest Shades logo (and shades) as he flies over the water! In this video Graeme is wearing a pair of "Frank the Tank - Polarized Black". check dude out!
Midwest Shades was invited out Saturday to the Westside Lowriders Annual Picnic in Hamilton Ohio. We rolled out there with a couple hundred pairs of Midwest Shades and had a blast. Met some great folk, drooled over some dope rides and watched a crazy hop contest. Definitely going to be there next year. Good times!
Killa Kyleon has been making a name for himself with his Houston Style and rediculous flow for quite some time now. Midwest Shades has had the opportunity to link up with him over the past couple years. As you will see in this video, Killa is on fire as he raps over an old Notorious Big beat wearing a pair of our "Frank the Tank" sunglasses.
