It’s a nice day with clear skies. The sun is shining bright, and you’re spending all day outside, soaking up some much needed vitamin D. You’ve been wearing your expensive, heavy sunglasses for a couple of hours now, and you’re starting to get a headache. Perhaps the bridge of your nose is tender from bearing the brunt of the weight. Or maybe it’s the sides of your head, throbbing from the pressure of tight the temples. Either way, you’re now presented with an annoying conundrum: do you shield your eyes from the bright sun, or do you alleviate the pain?
Well, there is actually a third option: get yourself a pair of well-made, high-quality sunglasses that are designed to be worn all day. We recently discovered this Danish sunglasses brand called MessyWeekend Copenhagen. They have a wide range of sunglasses models, but one particular pair stood out for all of its awesome features.
HOBBES is one of MessyWeekend’s injection models, crafted from a super durable material known as Swiss TR90. These sunglasses are lightweight and practically indestructible, two features everyone should want in a pair of shades. Not only that, but they are incredibly flexible. Just check out this GIF, where they pull off a maneuver that would snap a pair of, say, metal sunglasses in two.
Pretty cool, right?
HOBBES comes in a couple different colour variations (including some with Revo-coated lenses), but the favourites are definitely Army and Crystal. The frame is a dark, translucent green colour that has personality, but is subtle enough to complement most outfits. The round shape is a total classic and suits most faces, making it an easy choice for many.
Stylish? Check. Durable? Check. Now, what about the price? A pair of HOBBES will only set you back €65 (including free shipping). Not only that, but for each pair sold, MessyWeekend donates part of the revenue to their partner NGOs Plastic Change and ReSea Project to clean plastic waste out of the ocean! Look good. Feel good. Do good. Win-win-win!
