  • CLASSIC AVIATOR STYLE MADE WITH AEROSPACE GRADE TITANIUM: You already know that aviators look good on you. But realize that these are the highest quality, longest lasting, most durable pair of polarized aviators ever made, which got us featured in Maxim, US Weekly & more. Titanium is the strongest metal for its weight, which allows you to use your sunglasses actively without worrying about them breaking.
  • WORLD'S LIGHTEST NYLON POLARIZED LENSES - SCRATCH RESISTANT AND 100% UVA/UVB RAY PROTECTION: At less than half the weight of traditional polarized glass lenses, you can reduce eyestrain, ban your eyes from blinding glare, which makes driving safer, etc.. Oh and you also get a wipe clean cloth and a custom fit hard case that protects your shades.
  • KICK STARTER CAMPAIGN RAISED MORE THAN $200K: We received such an overwhelming response from the world, we had to bring them to our site. Disclaimer: These are authentic William Painter sunglasses, designed by a small independent team in California. These are not Ray-Bans, Oakley, Maui Jim, Arnette or any other Luxottica brand. Available in 2 colors - Golden & Matte Black.
  • INCREDIBLE VALUE FOR LIFELONG DURABILITY: There should be bans placed on major brand name sunglasses selling for ten times what it costs to make, which is due to the hefty markup costs of selling to retail stores. We don't have to charge $300+ because our vertically integrated ecommerce model bypasses the cost of retail store markup as we sell directly to consumers online, which allows us to deliver the world's highest quality glasses to our customer for the best price possible. Period.

    Happy with Hughes!

    I’ve been wearing my new gold Hughes for about a month now and they are just great. I look for more opportunities to wear them every day. I have even taken to wearing them when I shoot sporting clays (a clay target shotgun shooting sport). I figure that if a hammer can’t smash one of these nylon lenses, I’m safe from stray shotgun pellets. I also added a pair of OPTX 20/20 Hydrotac Stick-On Bifocal Lenses so I can enjoy my Hughes even more. In fact, I’m outside right now authoring this review with my Hughes on.

    Excellent! Thinking about getting another pair!

    I got my Hughes (in gold) back in October of 2019 and they have been awesome! They never fall off of my face and haven't had a scratch yet. Also love the carrying case that the company ships with the product. I always get compliments on them and I'm thinking about getting the black pair.
