    Teenagers!

    Bought these for my son's birthday. He absolutely loves them. As with any teenager his handling of them is less than gentle, however, these glasses have withstood his rough-housing with mates and secretly I think his mates are all a little jealous of his super cool shades.

    Thanks for helping me chose a great birthday present for him!

    Important to know

    There are only 2 reasons I am giving these glasses 4 out of five stars. 1: the case they come in is pretty big compared to most sunglasses. 2: The lens smudges VERY easily, I got a different cloth and glasses cleaner and that works fine.

    Side note: Since they are made out of metal, if you leave them in your car they will heat and cool based off of the temperature. I live in Texas and have a glass roof, when I picked them up they burned my hand because of the heat.

    Other than that, the polarization is simply AMAZING and can honestly look right next to the sun without having to squint my eyes (not that I stare at the sun frequently). Since they are made out of metal they are heavier then most sunglasses but the weight balance is perfect.

    Fantastic

    It’s a great, durable product! For a great price, these are awesome. I’ll never have to buy a pair of sunglasses again, unless it’s from William Painter! 10/10

    Best Sunglasses Out There!

    What’s not to love?

    These shades are made with ultra-premium materials (not made by Luxottica) and look amazing! They are comfortable for all day wear and have great optics.

    Plus they have the best warranty around. If you don’t like them or if they are compromised in any way, just send them back and you’ll get another pair of your choice! I’ve had several pairs and personally experienced their stellar customer service!

    The bottle opener is a nice touch ;)
