SK8 SHADES | MADE FROM RECYCLED SKATEBOARDS

SK8 Shades are hand-made sunglasses made from recycled skateboards! They are manufactured by one of South Africa’s best skateboard ramp builders, Dave De Witt, he makes them from used skateboards and pimps them into very cool sunglasses. It takes Dave 3 to 5 days working an average 4 hours for a perfect finish. The result are some awesome sunglasses that in their previous life have rolled down half pipes and pools, ridden inner cities and bombed down daunting hills...watch the video of the building process. source
