At first, I thought the idea of "folding" sunglasses was kind of silly; but then, after a few weeks I have grown to really enjoy the portability and the quality of the sunglasses. They are stylish and when worn you cannot tell that they have 'joints'.

Sunglasses are a very specific choice, not something I, personally, would like to be surprised with. I think the folding action is a gimmick (who has ever looked at a pair of glasses and wish they were smaller??), the lenses are made of plastic, and just feel cheap in general. Somehow the designer managed to make these sunglasses tiny and huge at the same time. They feel small on my head but the lenses are huge and dwarf my face. You may like the style and "utility" of these glasses, but I am not impressed.

These are awesome! The fit great. They are small enough when you fold them to carry in your pocket.

Awful

Ugly, uncomfortable, not much else to say. They didn't fit right and they looked terrible on me.

A kinda strange style, and while the fold up aspect is nice and convenient, the constraints of being compactake the glasses both too narrow and not long enough to test comfortably behind the ears.

cool concept

Love the idea and the function - don't like the style... Didn't look good on my husband or I... not to mention we wear glasses already - that transition. :)

Still neat idea. We passed them on to a friend who made them a spare pair.

Cheap Sunglasses

I'm a kinda a sunglasses snob. These are fine, but they're very cheap feeling. If you want a pair of sunglasses that you're ok with losing or breaking, here you go.

Convenient package, not for everyone

I like that the shades fold up into a small package. For me they'll serve as an effective "spare pair" of sunglasses, but they're not something I would buy. They're advertised as "flattering any face" but they don't look that great on me. I appreciate their attempt to make a universal sunglass, but I believe that's a task that is not too simple.
