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.
