The lenses are not as light as they seemed online
The purple lens on these shades make everything look extremely cool, especially the clouds!
Super unique sunglasses. Better than I thought with a cool design.
Everything from the box these come in, down to the awesome dust cloth, has an attention to detail. These glasses are solid and well made. The purple color makes everything bright and vivid. Absolutely will be buying another pair of Akila glasses, hopefully in the near future.
I purchased my legacy glasses for my birthday event and it’s was the best decision I ever made. The purple lense is a little dark for me, I like to wear my glasses at night also because I medicate them. But, the frame is perfect. And this shade is very form fitting for any face size.
