We're on the hunt for cool kids glasses, or whatever that might mean. Cayden has worn glasses since before kindergarten, and Aaron declared that it was time for him to get some “cool” ones. Since I have been responsible for every glasses purchase up until now I'm thinking he doesn't think I'm picking out the coolest ones there, so I let him do the glasses hunt this time.
Can we just say this … it's hard to find cool and hip glasses for kids without spending their whole college tuition for something that will last a year, if you are lucky and they don't play contact sports.
We decided to try out Warby Parker, but they don't have kids styles. We thought the next best thing would be to get women's glasses and hopefully they would be smaller. The coolest thing about Warby Parker is that they let you pick 5 styles you might like, then they send them to you so that you can try them on. Then when you pick your favs you order them with your prescription. How awesome is that! You know that I hate shopping (um .. hello StitchFix) and so this was speaking my love language. Convenience.
Now … we got the glasses and I'm not sure any of them work. I have to send them back Tuesday, so I need your help NOW! Are these all huge on his face? I think most of them are. There's one that we think might not be too big and we all like, but I want to see if any of you pick that one.
Here are the choices:
Here's a picture that Aaron posted on twitter and Cayden was trying on a pair of glasses for him:
So … what do you guys think? Are they all too big? I know most of them are. There's one we are kinda thinking about getting, but still not 100% sure. If you have kids in glasses and you think they are cool and hip, where do you get them? So far we've always done Costco, Wal Mart & Target, so obviously those aren't working for us!
I think they are all a little big, but #3 may bethe best of them all. Kids grow so fast so I bet he will fit into them in no time. 🙂
Try http://www.zennioptical.com . They are so reasonable I bought three pair for less then what one pair would cost. You can upload your pic and try on all the styles..hope this helps.
Tweet Warby Parker for advice. I did this and they made a YouTube video to help me pick sunglasses. I do agree these all look a bit big, so they might be able to suggest smaller sizes for Cayden. Include a pic of him with styles you are leaning toward.
#4 is the best fit, but maybe try accurate optical? Do you have those? I was thinking black all the way around, but more like Clark kent- not
Round. But ps, he’s super handsome either way!!
Yeah, too big. Bummer because I love me some Warby Parker! I agree with the Zenni recommendation, they are super cheap and they have kids’ glasses. You can’t try them on, but for the price it’s worth the gamble!
#4 i think
#4 is best especially with him smiling. Do you have America’s Best? They have a decent sized kids collection but I’m not sure how cool they are.
i agree, they’re all pretty big. and i agree that #3 is the best of the bunch, but i would think if he looks down and they slip off, then they’re not good to keep.
all too big, but cool styles! i hope you find a good option for your cute little dude!
I think they’re all a little big. I picture my kids running around on the playground and I know they’d fall off. Have you checked Zinni? That’s where we get Wyatt’s. They’re super cheap so we can get several pairs.
