After initial popularity in the 1950's and 1960's, and two revivals in the early 1980's and mid 2000's respectively, the Wayfarer style, with its signature trapezoidal lenses, is here to stay. eKodoKi's METRO is a modern reinterpretation with a slightly more angular shape and less high lenses. It is also a greener version, as it is made of natural FSC certified wood (FSC means the wood comes from trusted and protected forests).
Because such Wayfarer sunglasses are not too big and present a good mix between angular and round details, they suit almost every face shape. Such rectangular model, with a relatively small lens height, is particularly suitable for making round and square faces appear longer and less wide.
Don’t worry about wearing and using eKodoKi’s wooden sunglasses in any circumstances; they are sweat proof, splash proof and scratch proof. Their frames and arms are made of eco-friendly plywood manufactured from thin layers of veneer from various wood types and treated with an oil that doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.
eKodoKI METRO sunglasses won’t slide down easily; their all-wood frame and temples, as well as their lenses, are very light weight. Fold and unfold them repeatedly without the risk of breaking; their high-quality spring hinges allow temples to stretch back further.
All eKodoKi sunglasses come with UV400 certified polarized lenses. Such lenses ensure that you won't be bothered by annoying reflections such as sunlight on wet pavement. The colour contrast is higher with these lenses, so you see everything in natural colours – and are 100% protected against UV rays.
The function of smoke (grey) coloured lenses is that they reduce the brightness of the light without diluting the colours. All spatial colours are therefore preserved.
