- 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.

Aerospace Grade Titanium Frame
Titanium is the strongest metal for it's weight, which allows you to live an active life without worrying about them breaking
These sunglasses are made from the same materials used in Fighter Jets; it is extremely strong, but also deceptively light. Unlike other “premium brands” our frame is hypoallergenic, meaning it is perfectly safe for the human body.
Black Armour Coating
You are an active person and you need eyewear that can keep up. We examined drill bits, knives, firearms, and F1 race car pistons. From this we developed our own titanium protective coating.
Our "Armour" is strong... like military strong.
Rear Weighted Balance
Ever had glasses fall down your nose? We HATE that! By using titanium and ultra light lenses, we were able to greatly improve the center of balance. This makes for a comfortable fit, helping to ensure the glasses stay planted on your beautiful face.
The World's Best Lenses
We searched the entire world the best combination of scratch resistance, ultra lightweight, and optical quality. Our Japanese nylon lenses have twice the scratch resistance of glass lenses and the amazing optical quality, which mean's you'll be seeing the world in HD.
WP lenses weigh less than half of the weight of traditional glass lenses so they don't slide down your nose when you lean forward.
Polarized lenses neutralizes glare, clear up objects and reduce eye strain. They work especially well on car windshields, water landscapes and other high glare environments. Over time, most lenses bubble and flake. Have you ever seen a bad tint job on a car? Same problem. Our Lifelong lenses go one step further, we integrate both the polarizing and tint layers all the way through the lens so it will last forever.
We want you to have the very best. Each one of our titanium arms is laser engraved to ensure it stands the test of time. It's the details that matter, and we think it is the perfect finishing touch.
Free Protective Hardcase and Cloth
Most sunglasses don't break while they're on your face. Put them in your back pocket and that's a different story...
Don't worry, we've got you covered. We've built a hardcase to protect your sunglasses that’s as tough as your are. Take it anywhere and keep your sunglasses safe.
We've built a custom hardcase for each style. They're tough enough to protect your sunglasses, and each pair fits snugly inside. It's like cradeling them in your hands - but without all the effort.
