In 1970 the company was founded by an optician and a mechanical engineer; Hans Steeper and Bernard Ide, and named Stepper & Ide. Stepper & Ide became known internationally as a manufacturer of well fitting, comfortable eyewear.

The Stepper prescription glasses collection addresses the more mature wearer of specs.

Stepper has always produced frames where the emphasis has been on comfort. Stepper frames look great too, with an extensive range to choose from. Timeless metal and plastic styles in women's, men's and unisex designs ensure there's a Stepper frame for almost everyone.

Good design is backed up with quality materials to create frames that will last. But good quality doesn't come at a premium and Stepper frames represent good value for money.
