According to PriceSpy, the number of shoppers looking to purchase a pair of 80’s-style Ray-Ban Aviators is currently skyrocketing, with the number of people looking to purchase up as much as 158 per cent since the film debuted last week.
What’s more, the Ray-Ban Aviator model is also ranking as the #1 most-popular sunglasses product on PriceSpy, jumping eight positions up from ninth most-popular last week.
Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, UK country manager for PriceSpy, says: “A lot has changed since the original Top Gun movie launched some 34 years ago. But one thing that remains the same in the new movie, Top Gun: Maverick, is Tom Cruise continues to wear an iconic pair of Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses.”
And it’s not just Brits that appear to be loving the Maverick look. Consumer buying interest on PriceSpy’s global sites for Ray-Ban’s Aviator sunglasses is also on the up:
