Please note that I cannot offer a longterm review on these sunglasses and an expansive evaluation of durability and longevity, this is an impression after a few weeks of ownership.
The glasses arrived even, that is, when I expand the arms and place the glasses on the table, they lay flat and I don’t need to do any sort of adjusting or bending. I’ve purchased other brands where the glasses arrived crooked as a dog’s hind leg and I had to adjust them extensively. Additionally, the thick acetate frame with steel core is something I greatly appreciate. Much of the sunglass market uses molded plastic, and while it is a little more lightweight, in my experience, it isn’t nearly as sturdy. When you wear these you’ll feel the weight of their luxury and quality.
Regarding style, I think AKILA’s description of the Idol frame as “a classic-era silhouette reinterpreted through a modern lens” is accurate. They wouldn’t be at all out of place in a 1950s ad or image from that eyewear company that rhymes with “Spray-Tan.”
My only knock is the case the glasses arrive in. It’s nice polyurethane case, don’t get me wrong, but I will always advocate for a hard case. I want my glasses protected from bumps and pressure placed on them when I’m not wearing them, and a soft case cannot do that. Lastly, be sure to read the measurements. For the big heads among us, this pair is a win and is quite flattering. Small heads, be warned, these will be oversized for you.
Overall, I’m quite pleased.
Super high quality. Check the sizing specifications before you buy!
They are authentic Akila Sungless. Will buy again!!
I own lots of sunglasses but Akila is my new go to brand. I love the cool styles and different variation of color lenses. Super cool.
These are hella dope
