About Us


What started as a way to hook up friends and family with some awesome eyewear has turned into a global sunglass business. On a daily basis we are shipping our affordable sunglasses all around the world as well as shipping to all 50 states in the United States of America. Based out of Cincinnati Ohio we are growing everyday and shooting for the stars. As other corporate sunglass companies provide the same Ultraviolet Protection with their overly priced sunglasses here at Midwest Shades we continue to provide the same protection at a fraction of the price. No more spending sixty to over a hundred dollars on shades and then having them scratched, lost, broken or stolen. Save that money for the family and get a set of Midwest Shades. You can thank me later.

The mission is simple, provide some fashionable sunglasses at an affordable price. Sure, you can run down to the local gas station or bait shop and buy a pair of crappy sunglasses for $15 or less but I can guarantee you that they suck and more than likely they aren’t up to safety standards and can cause more harm than good. Here at Midwest Shades we have searched near and far for only the best sunglasses and provide them to our customers at the lowest price possible.

All sunglasses sold here at Midwest Shades provide UV400 protection against excessive exposure to light, including its visible and invisible components. “The most widespread protection is against ultraviolet radiation, which can cause short-term and long-term ocular problems such as photokeratitis, snow blindness, cataracts, pterygium, and various forms of eye cancer.[7] Medical experts advise the public on the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes from UV;[7] for adequate protection, experts recommend sunglasses that reflect or filter out 99-100 % of UVA and UVB light, with wavelengths up to 400 nm. Sunglasses which meet this requirement are often labeled as “UV400.” This is slightly more protection than the widely used standard of the European Union (see below), which requires that 95 % of the radiation up to only 380 nm must be reflected or filtered out.[8] Sunglasses are not sufficient to protect the eyes against permanent harm from looking directly at the Sun, even during a solar eclipse.”- source wikipedia
