Lewis Hamilton's New Favourite Sunglasses for 2014 by Super Retro Future

Lewis Hamilton wearing Super Retro Future Sunglasses in 2014

Lewis Hamilton has already been seen wearing lots of different sunglasses during the 2014 F1 season as you can see in these posts here and here; but he finally seems to have made his mind up about which ones are his current favourite sunnies.

The British Mercedes F1 driver has been wearing these cool black sunglasses at a number of races now, including The Canadian GP, The Austrian GP and most recently at The British GP in 2014.  It's taken a little while to figure out exactly what they are, but it seems we finally have the answer...

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Gucci Sunglasses in 2014

Lewis Hamilton changes his sunglasses like he changes his underwear, which is probably a lot when your travelling at 200 miles per hour all the time!

During the first couple of races he was seen wearing Emporio Armani sunglasses as reported here. I think I've counted around 4 or 5 different styles of sunglasses since then; all of them tend to be quite large styles, such as the ones in these photos from the 2014 Monaco GP.

I was looking at some sunglasses in the shop the other day when I came across the Oakley Breadbox model.  Yeah, funny name, but I must say, I really liked them.  Then I found these pictures on my phone that I had taken last year of Romain Grosjean wearing the Oakley Breadbox sunglasses at the Korean GP in 2013.

Kimi Raikkonen Wearing Oakley Carbon Blade Scuderia Ferrari Special Edition Sunglasses

The only time Kimi Raikkonen isn't wearing Oakley sunglasses is when he is asleep (I'm assuming), or maybe when he's wearing his helmet while driving his Ferrari F1 car around the race track like at Montreal this weekend at the 2014 Canadian GP.

Like his Ferrari F1 team mate Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen has been wearing Oakley's new Special Edition Scuderia Ferrari Sunglasses during the 2014 World Championship.

Jean-Eric Vergne Wears Ray-Ban Wayfarer Urban Camouflage Sunglasses at 2014 Monaco GP

Toro Rosso F1 driver Jean-Eric Vergne was seen wearing some pretty cool Special Edition Ray-Ban Wayfarer Urban Camouflage Sunglasses this weekend at the 2014 Monaco GP in Monte Carlo.

Fashion is a funny thing though as there seems to be a contradiction going on here, given that the urban camouflage edition of these Wayfarer sunglasses should help Vergne to blend into the background of this urban street circuit in Monaco, but instead they actually make him stand out in the paddock thanks to their cool style and colours.

Ferrari F1 driver Fernando Alonso is no stranger to wearing Oakley Garage Rock sunglasses as you can see in these previous posts here and here.  But the ones he is wearing this weekend at the 2014 Spanish GP are extra special.

Oakley have recently launched the Scuderia Ferrari Special Edition Oakley Sunglasses Collection with various popular Oakley frames getting the F1 Ferrari Team treatment with special colour frames and lenses and best of all, the famous prancing horse Ferrari badge featured on the frame and lens as seen below.

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Emporio Armani Sunglasses in 2014

Lewis Hamilton wearing Emporio Armani Sunglasses at the 2014 Australian GP

Lewis Hamilton finally got his season off to the start he was hoping for in Melbourne with a dominant win today at the Malaysian GP.  For the record, I think this could be the year for his second World Championship, but Nico Rosberg won't make it easy for him.  Hard to believe it was all the way back in 2008 that Hamilton won his first and only championship so far!

Lewis Hamilton is a fan of large sunglasses and 2014 is no exception as you can see in these images (snapped from my TV).  This year Lewis Hamilton has been wearing Emporio Armani Sunglasses to protect his eyes from the harsh Australian sun in Melbourne (above) and in Malaysia.

More images below...

Lewis Hamilton loves his EA sunglasses so much he was even wearing them in the garage while talking with the legendary Niki Lauda at the 2014 Australian GP.

Emporio Armani Sunglasses as Worn by Lewis Hamilton in 2014

Looking at the shape and style of the sunglasses Lewis Hamilton is wearing this year they appear to be the Emporio Armani EA4002 model in colour 501787 - Black with Grey lenses.

As it turns out, these are actually a great value pair of sunnies, coming in at under £100, so you don't actually need to be a Formula One driver to be able to afford them.
