While John Boyd Dunlop founded a number of companies in the late 1800s, the sporting branch of his brand originated out of a rubber manufacturing company that he would sell his rights to. After his retirement in 1895, they began trading under the name Dunlop Rubber. And it was from this company, that Dunlop Sport would be launched less than 2 decades later.
Dunlop is now one of the most recognisable names in the sporting equipment world, and has been since the early twentieth century. Founded in 1909, the brand quickly became synonymous with high quality sporting goods and with a sense of style that accompanied gear highly-tuned for performance.
Dunlop were soon the brand to beat on the scene, and in 1936 could actually say that they had more of their tennis rackets on show at Wimbledon than any other manufacturer.
They found their place as one of the leading providers of equipment for international sports such as tennis, golf, squash, fishing and skiing.
Their designs are perfect for high-adrenaline sports, with a comfortable structure that fits securely on the head, and lenses primed to block out UV rays. Dunlop have taken pride in striving to offer you the edge over your opponents when it comes to competing at any level of sporting activity.
While they are best-known for their sporting sunglasses, a selection of other more versatile editions have been created by the brand. Our entire range of Dunlop sunglasses offer the security of full UV protection, which means that your eyes will be safe from harm while you embrace the style of one of these vibrant editions.
