    Miraculous

    I am in love with these sunglasses, I wear them everywhere I go. Transferring from the Ray-Bans clubmasters to these might have been the best decision I've made in 2019 thus far. Hands down the most questioned/complimented sunglasses I've ever owned.The insane power you feel setting them atop your face, the raw energy that is radiating from you is unmatched by any other sunglass company. They also fit my face to a T. I like to wake surf and wear my sunglasses while doing so especially during evening/morning sessions. I obviously still wear the connectors in case they do fall off, however, I have not felt these budge from me plunging headfirst into the green abyss since I got them. Great sunglasses, great quality, great value, 10/10 would recommend.

    I Knew They Were the Best Pair of Glasses Ever Immediately

    Honestly, the balance was noticeable right away. As an owner of the RayBan original style, the weight distribution was immediately noticeable. I wasn't sure how I would feel about plastic lenses but they are solid and have clarity. I have a narrow head so these fit perfectly on me.

    Major benefit: On hot, sweaty days (like the current heat wave on the east coast), these don't slip. My RayBans require CONSTANT nose adjustment. They are unusable for anything but driving with A/C in weather like this. I don't think about these glasses once they are on.

    lightweight, sturdy, A+ customer service , and so much more

    I bought these for myself on a whim for my birthday. I’ve never been particular about sunglasses- they were just functional to me. After wearing these WP, I realize I never owned a really good pair before. I also don’t like writing reviews, so this is a momentous occasion. They are so lightweight I automatically think they should be flimsy but they are tough. I like the free hard case that comes with each pair because 1. it’s free and 2. it reminds me to put them away and take better care of them. They are also well balanced so no sliding down my nose in hot muggy weather. And, I dropped them on my concrete sidewalk about 6 weeks after I bought them and got a tiny scratch on the blue lens. Customer service was wonderful. They replaced the whole pair (not just the lens), no questions asked. Love, love, love my sunglasses!
