Birchbox Folding Sunglasses

Remember how cool it was every time one of the Transformers would unravel into a robot? Well, these folding sunglasses operate under the same awesome principle. Available in both black and tortoiseshell, these stylish shades feature a timeless silhouette that will flatter any face. They also come with a handy storage case to ensure they don’t get stepped on or scratched when not in use. Think of them as the Optimus Prime of eyewear.

Not real comfotable

The idea is great, and they are perfect if you going on a trip and need to store them out of the way. The glasses are not terribly comfortable, and are rather tight on my face.

did not hold up

These broke the first day I got them. I put a new pin in. And lasted a few more weeks. But then completely book then unable to fix. I really loved the style too.

Stylish... Until they broke

The quality of material used on this was very poor. I wore it for about 3 weeks after receiving it in the Birchbox and then each of the earpieces started to unhinge. I managed to save the tiny screws and re-screwed them in. That worked for about a day and it all came apart again.

Broke after one day of wear

Despite my excitement to receive these sunglasses, I was extremely disappointed after they broke the first day I wore them. They snapped right at the folding hinge on one of the sides as I attempted to place them on my face. Though the frames are stylish, I wouldn't consider buying a replacement pair as the quality is simply too cheap.

They broke after about 6 wearings

This are a great idea but they are poorly made---they broke after about the 6th use. And they weren't put to any stress other than folding them and unfolding them.

Quite simply...horrible

These are, quite simply, horrible cheap plastic drug store sunglasses. If you're looking for good folding sunglasses, invest in Persols a la Steve McQueen.

Disappointed

This is a great idea. I was so excited to try. As soon as I opened the box, the glasses fell out in pieces. There were no screws to hold it together. Very disappointed.

Too small for my face!

I guess I have a big face. These glasses are too small...the arms don't sit correctly on my ears. Guess I can put them on my dog and take hipster photos of him?

Cheesey

Not very functional. Can tell by looking at the glasses they are folding. Not worth 20 bucks. My kids won't even wear them.

Poor quality

Mine arrived broken (intact in the container they ship with), seems like a decent idea but I couldn't even try them one time.
