Elton John’s signature sunglasses have been a part of his on-stage uniform for years, so it only makes sense that the legendary singer has his own eyewear collection, inspired by his own eccentric style and illustrious music career. And as he finishes off the last leg of his “Farewell Tour” throughout the summer, there’s no better time than to snag a pair of the most “Rocketman” styles.

More from Variety

Elton John Eyewear, designed by John himself and created in collaboration with Sam’s Club and Walmart, came out last summer, but the best styles are still available for you stock up on as we head into warmer months. The collection includes four capsules: The Foundations Collection, The Formative Years, The Working Musician and The Master Collection. The Foundations Collection makes up the bulk of the lineup, including 60 prescription, non-prescription, sunglass and reader options. Every piece is embossed with a signature “E,” with some referencing famous songs such as “Rocketman,” and others nodding to his iconic pop-star story, such as “A-List” and “Prodigy.”

“Elton John Eyewear celebrates confidence, self-expression and authenticity,” John said in a statement upon its release. “The line is designed to have something for everyone, so no matter who you are, you can always look yourself. It’s not just about glasses, it’s about changing the way people see themselves.”

Walmart also pledged to donate $1 million of their proceeds from the collection to the Elton John AID’s Foundation, as a continuation of their longtime support for the singer’s philanthropic efforts to increase HIV education and awareness.

Anyone who grew up with Elton John, or at least saw his rise to fame in “Rocketman,” will recognize this groovy style from his time performing throughout the ’70s, when he was just beginning to make a name for himself at iconic stages such as The Troubador in Los Angeles. The iconic square shape of these updated glasses, which also feature polarized lenses with superior UV protection, is reminiscent of the sunnies John wore throughout the early stages of his career, before donning even more eccentric stage outfits later on.
