Chief Keef Sunglasses: Identifying the Brand

After a quick search on the internet, it was becoming increasingly difficult to identify the exact brand of sunglasses worn by Chief Keef. There seems to be little information across social media, including Facebook and Twitter, and anybody talking about the famed sunglasses, on forums, came up short. With this poor start, I had to dig a little deeper in my search. The first point of the call was searching was finding an image that showcased the side of the sunglasses. This allowed me to get a better idea of the exact style of sunglasses. What I did know was these sunglasses are in an Aviator style, but also incorporate a more urban look with thicker rims and white frames.

Luckily, during my search, I came across a Reddit thread from early 2023 that posed the same question on the Chief Keef Subreddit. Here many different people gave their opinion on the exact sunglasses with one user finally chiming in with the following:

With this information in mind, I searched the exact brand a model, the Gucci 1030 glasses, and managed to confirm that these are indeed the exact sunglasses worn by Chief Keef. These sunglasses have long since been discontinued by Gucci themselves but can be occasionally found on second-hand websites such as ebay and esty for prices anywhere from $200.00+.

Sorry about the poor image quality.
