    Announcing the arrival of The Hughes

    After over 6 years on their own we are proud to announce that The Hook finally has a new sibling, with the arrival of The Hughes. The entire William Painter family were so supportive and the delivery was text book perfect with no delay once we made the big decision to have another one. The perfect weight and balance, The Hughes are already very happy at home and enjoying spending some time in the Sun. Great work team.

    I dropped these sunglasses 6 stories onto glass.

    I'm a high rise window cleaner who does rappel work every day. I bought these sunglasses because I needed durable, polarized shades that looked good and stayed on my face, and the lifetime warranty sold me. Of course, I still try my best to take care of them, but accidents happen. One day when I was leaning over a wall, they fell off my shirt six stories, landed on a glass sub-roof (see picture), and slid. When I retrieved them later in the day, the lenses had stayed in, and not even a scratch or bend.

    That's not to say they can't get damaged. I'm receiving my third pair soon. I stepped on the first pair and the left hinge broke off. The second pair's hinge connector got bent and eventually sheared off. But, I tend not to put them away as I should, and a very thin piece of titanium can only hold up to so much.

    The only downside in my eyes is that the plastic lenses could be a lot more scratch-proof. Over time, they get swirl mark scratches, and larger scratches are also fairly easy to get, even being careful. You can step on them once without breaking them, but not without consequences. Super awesome glasses all around, 10/10 would recommend.

    Way lighter than expected.

    I am not sure I am cool enough to pull off the gold color but I am keeping them because I like the brown tint. I got Lasik last week and I needed to load up on sunglasses to plant where I would need them; car, travel bag, near my Onewheel for riding. I ended up buying two pair of Empires and when I saw how awesome they were, I bought a third pair of Empires and one of the gold Hughes. The Hughes are great because they block more wind from drying my just-laser-fried eyeballs. They also have a much bigger lens so more of your vision is protected from sun. I really expected these to be heavier. They are very light weight and SUPER comfortable to wear. I have been forced to get very expensive proscription sunglasses in the past and I have had lots of name brands, Ray Ban, Bolle, and Oakley to name the three most recent. These are WAY, WAY, WAY better sunglasses than all of those. More comfortable, more sturdy, clearly better quality. I bought four pair of William Painters so obviously I am impressed! Not one hint of regret from this guy.

    Most solid pair of sunglasses I've ever held. Fits amazing, heavy to hold but not heavy while they're on. Great lenses. I'm exceptionally stoked.
