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.

Won't fit this mellon

This is a nice secondary pair of sunglasses that could be kept in the glove compartment or in the boat. They seems quite sturdy for a folding pair of glasses, and they come with a better than average case to protect them. Style is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case I would say that form is somewhat circumscribed by function.

I will most likely keep these in the glove compartment for use by a passenger, as they are just too small for my face and head. If you wear your snap-back on one of the last two tabs, these shades are probably not for you.

Decent glasses, cool concept
Sampled

Love the idea of the folding glasses and the box is sweet. The shades themselves seem okay. Will see how the hold up long term but are at a good price. Another Birchbox winner.

Great backup sunglasses

This pair of sunglasses is great for storing somewhere to use as a backup if you forget or break your main pair.

Interesting...

The concept of folding sunglasses is pretty cool. These are actually good looking on. Not sure how much I will actually wear them.

Amazing!
Sampled

Totally unexpected and made the box worth it. Came with my first box, so to say I was surprised would be an understatement. I plan on buying the Black pair for me and might order some more as gifts. Would make excellent stocking stuffers at Christmas!

THROWING SHADE

These are a pretty cool toy and they look stylish. I wish the lenses were more opaque. It's hard to stare people discreetly when they can see my eyes. :-(((((((((((((

Cool, but not me

Pretty cool pair of shades...just not convinced its fits "my look." It did feel a little small. The ''arms" are a little short, but otherwise it looks good and the size it folds up to is great.

Great idea

This concept is fabulous, however they sit really low and weird on the face. Needs a little tweeking.

Strange...
Sampled

It's not like sunglasses are bulky objects that you can'y tuck in your shirt pocket or leave on your forehead. The concept of needing "pack away" sunglasses with a pouch you are supposed to remember to bring with you is beyond me. They are not flexible, thus if your head is large/wide they are going to look strange on you. Design is very specific - if it doesn't compliment your facial features - good luck to you.
