As noted, each pair of French army sunglasses offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of French military surplus. These sunglasses were originally designed for and used by members of the armée de terre, otherwise known as the "French army," which represents the largest service branch of the French armed forces. Largely popularized by the French army, these aviator sunglasses are now used worldwide.
Though these sunglasses are military surplus items and are believed to have seen issuance, they remain in excellent condition. Their frames remain sturdy and their joints remain tight. Though the lenses may suffer from minor scratches and scuffing, they are still wholly usable and capable of providing real protection. Those looking for the final piece of a costume, a pair of cheap sunglasses for the car or a unique piece of French military history should consider picking up a pair of French army sunglasses today.
Originally manufactured by Bollé, a French company known for its high-quality eyewear that serves consumer needs in both the performance and protection markets, the French army sunglasses are representative of both quality and simplicity. Their simple, lightweight frames take on the classic aviator style and are constructed from high-strength plastics that are built to last. Joining the frames is a pair of green-tinted lenses that provide true UVA protection, allowing these sunglasses to meld form and function. Moreover, each pair of sunglasses ships with a soft, vinyl case.
These French army sunglasses are an excellent choice for:
- Every day wear
- Much more…
Note: Sunglass case may arrive different than pictured.

Durable and light weight, I keep spares around for when friends borrow them or they just go missing.
The last batch I bought one of them says Bolle with Optique: grade 1 UV 100% V 81% IR 83%
Some research on the specs on these and other pairs that have labels to be consistent with each other.
Kinda wish they where polarized too, but these still reduce glare well. Good for driving.
Great quality, great price. The ones I received each came in a black vinyl case and have dark green lenses. Very stylish. Not Oakleys but they don't have to be. I keep a pair in my car for trips out and they work perfectly.
Good condition for used - no scratches lite wt frames comfortable, green lens, comes with sleeve case. French gear has been consistent quality wise so far , happy w/ purchase!!
Very nice, storage wear only. No scratches. Am ordering more.
Good quality French sunglasses. Ordered first pair. Black case. Cool greenish tint. Then ordered 3 more pair which were marked Bolle France on frame. Tan Bolle marked case. Not the greenish tint. All 4 pairs appear new. 3 Bolle marked cases appear to be lightly used. Nice vintage sunglasses . Thank you Keep Shooting!
They feel a bit inexpensive in your hands, but they offer a style I haven't quite seen before. Not quite aviator but not wayfarer, either. It was an afterthought to the order and I like what I got. They came in a tan pouch with a tension closure on one side.
Received my pair this week and appeared to be brand new. Lightweight but very durable frames and hardware.. You can tell they are military spec.
Hell of a deal for some very cool vintage glasses that just happen to be all the rage in terms of style right now.
Well worth the money and then some, look and fit very good. Might have to order another pair. Extremely pleased with this little add on purchase :)
Like new sunglasses. The clear flawless lenses are a green tint that accentuate green foliage. Very light weight and the absence of any metal wire or metallic glass makes perfect eye wear that will not accept EMF nomenclature.

The sunglasses that I received are very cool. They also seemed to be brand new in a nice case. While I am very happy with them, they are just cheap plastic sunglasses. Very cool vintage glasses!
