style of sunglasses, or stunna shades, made popular by rapper, kanye west.

metal (sometimes plastic) glasses complete with slits cut out horizontally; not unlike window shades or "shutters", but do not actually have any glass or translucent plastic for lenses.

origin could possibly be derived from eskimo sunglasses used by whale hunters.

also, could possibly be the worst trend of 2008. shutter shades do absolutely nothing and look ridiculous. thanks, kanye, you've doomed us all.

1: A pair of glasses which, rather than having lenses, they have horizontal plastic strips going across, which defeats any purpose of the glasses, they come in a variety of different colours and are worn by mostly either scene kids or rap kids.

2: Cunt goggles
Guy with shutter shades: Hey man, got these new shutter shades today, don't i look good in them

Me: No, they make you look like a fucking clown.

Plastic, usually bright-colored sunglasses with horizontal plastic strips where the lenses would be, thus giving the effect of a shutter while defeating the purpose of sunglasses. Shutter shades were debuted by Kanye West.
I was so excited when I bought a pair of shutter shades on sale, until I realized that there was nowhere I could wear them to.

Usually plastic glasses with horizontal pieces of plastic going across. in place of actual lenses, which totally defeats the purpose of the glasses. They were originally made popular in the 80's, which is contrary to popular belief because of a dipfuck named Kanye West. Now everybody thinks the glasses are his, but in reality, he's an unoriginal fuck.
