Named after our Hero Anthony Radetic, the Radman Sunglass is one of our favorite sunglasses we have designed. Just like Anthony, the Radman Sunglass is sporty, tough, and good looking.
Anthony Radetic is an American alpine skier, Pro PWC racer and veteran of the United States Army. Anthony, a native of Florida, graduated from Florida Air Academy High School and subsequently attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering.
Anthony enlisted in the U. S Army and was sent to Fort Benning, Georgia as an ASA parachute rigger where he completed airborne school. While stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Anthony completed the Army's Primary Leadership Development Course. He attended Special Forces Selection course and was selected for Special Forces. Anthony was then picked to become a Special Forces communication sergeant and assigned to Army Special Operations Command Headquarters. During this time the U.S. Army began a corrective eye surgery program, which allowed him to participate in a test program to attend helicopter flight school training. Anthony completed the Army helicopter flight training course, became an Army aviator, and was assigned to serve as a primary Blackhawk VIP pilot for the Post General.
While in advance course training Anthony was struck by a motor-vehicle leaving him paralyzed. He sustained a spinal cord injury at the C2, C3, T7 and T8 levels. He remained in critical care for 40 days. Six years after his injury Anthony tried skiing for the first time at a sports clinic in Snowshoe West Virginia. In 2012 he moved to Aspen Colorado to begin training seriously for international alpine skiing competitions. While training in Aspen, Anthony was filmed by Warren Miller crew while he landed his first back-flip on a monoski. Since then, Anthony continues to compete in several sports including hand cycling, skiing, and personal watercraft racing.
