I recently bought a pair of the ‘task force’ glasses because not only do I like how yellow lenses look, I fell in love with the nose pads that were a part of the glasses frame, a feature that’s super hard to find on an aviator style.. but absolutely necessary if you’re someone who moves your glasses to the top of your head and has long hair. I was very hesitant at the price point but I decided to splurge. I am so glad I did! You can truly feel the quality of these glasses. They surpass any expectation I had for them. I’m so pleased with my purchase. I definitely want to order from Akila again. Thank you!
