FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT

Where is Glade headquartered?

  • We started our journey skiing the Mad River Valley of Vermont, but headed West in search of big mountains, endless sunshine, and powder. Now we call Breckenridge, Colorado home.

Where are Glades made?

  • We work with a variety of premium production partners within the US, Italy, and China to make sure all Glade goods meet our obsessive quality standards and uphold our mission.

Do you have a shop in Breckenridge?

  • Sounds dreamy. Alas, we don’t have a retail operation or showroom at our Breckenridge office. However, if you are in Breck and want to see a pair in person, just look around and you’ll see Glades all over the local hills. Folks that wear Glades tend to be cool, like you, and they’ll probably even let you take a closer look, if you ask nicely… or buy them a beer.

PRESCRIPTION/RX

Can I get my Glade Sunglasses with a prescription?

  • Not yet, but please send us a note to let us know your interest. We’re hoping to develop this as an option soon..

Do you have an OTG (Over-the-glasses) snow goggle?

  • Yes! Check out our Fathom and Fathom+ goggles - both are OTG compatible and will fit most glasses 5.5" wide x 2" tall.
