I was a little worried ordering glasses without trying them on. I ended up loving them. Build quality seems amazing. They just seem like they should be worth more. I’m definitely ordering a couple other drake types and colors soon.
honestly up for writing a review because they always ship so fast that I am really impressed
First heard about AKILA from a collab they did with PLEASURES. Thought I'd check em out to see what they offered and these are now my new go-to. They look and fit amazing! What you get in terms of quality, style, and accessories is unmatchable for $100 pair of glasses. Thank you, AKILA, for making a designer pair of glasses without the designer price tag.
I’ve been on the hunt for some nice thick black sunglasses and these are perfect. They are great quality and I love how sleek they look.
Quality is absolutely outstanding, would give 10 stars if I could.
