Get Your Nerd-Chic Glasses with Eyebobs Eyewear

Many great artists, scientists and philosophers were recognized for their prodigious contributions to the world only long after they were dead, e.g. Vincent Van Gogh, Gregor Johann Mendel, Socrates, etc.

I never would of thunk it, but I believe Steve Urkel belongs in this canon.

(Yes, he is a fictional character, but I’m counting the final episode of Family Matters as a sort of “end” for Urkel).

Anyway, it turns out the hapless, accident-prone super nerd had more style than anyone gave him credit for, and namely, his glasses.

Nerd-chic glasses are everywhere and on everyone nowadays, including Justin Timberlake, Kayne West, Jay Z, and Brad Pitt.

In fact, if you think about it, Steve Urkel foreshadowed a lot of today’s trends: cropped pants, bow ties, saddle shoes, and even suspenders came back for a hot second. Food for thought…But anyway, his biggest contribution to men’s fashion is undoubtedly nerd-chic glasses.

(If only Laura could see Steve now.)

The trend has definitely found a home in Milwaukee and Shorewood. In fact, Harleys carries Eyebobs, a line of eclectic reading glasses for “the irreverent and slightly jaded” folks who distain drugstore cheapies but scoff at frames that cost as much as a mortgage payment.

Eyebobs takes classic eyeglass shapes and adds to them an array of funky color like neon green, blue, orange and more.
