We believe in saltwater communion and the sacred bond between human and nature. Our love for the water leaves a contagious joy in our wake.

Since selling out the first two floating styles in 2016, Rheos has evolved into a collection of high-performance and stylish eyewear built for the water. Every detail of their selection of shades was designed for water activities, addressing the needs of fishermen, boaters, beachgoers and whatever-you-do-outsiders.
