I tried out KittyKat Black / Hot Purple, Candy Sunnies Rose Gold and KittyKat Rose Gold – this is my first Topfoxx review! Firstly I’ll start with what all three sunnies had in common: shipping, packing, materials, carrying case… in case you’re not interested, feel free to scroll down, you’ll find your Topfoxx promo code at the bottom 🙂
Topfoxx ship worldwide and even offer free shipping for orders above a certain amount ($100+ if you’re in the US, $150+ for worldwide). They ship from New York and had arrived at our place in Budapest in less than a week, which is pretty impressive.
But what impressed me more, was the size of the package – Topfoxx really stream-lined the packaging, so much so in fact that at first, I thought it was just one pair of sunglasses, not three! Being conscious not to waste resources by using minimal packaging (especially reducing the amount of plastic used) is something that’s really important to me (and something companies like Amazon could learn from)! I was happy to see Topfoxx were clued in. But it wasn’t like they skimped on the packaging at the expense of the sunglasses – all three pairs were there and all three were 100% undamaged, of course.
In keeping with that conscious mind-set I was further impressed to see that most of the sunglasses’ frame is made of metal (rather than plastic, read more: why we’re giving up plastic). The bit that sits on your ear is still hard plastic, but the rest of the frame is metal. The lenses are UV 400 protection (a must for anyone who cares about their eyes). Also, note that all Topfoxx eyewear is hand-crafted, they are “made by hand but some parts involve the use of machinery”, hence why it’s hand-crafted not hand-made. But still, I’m a huge fan of going back to our hand roots as much as possible. All three pairs have a high quality feel to them, I particularly liked the tear drop nose guards.
TOPFOXX CARRYING CASE
These Topfoxx cat eye sunnies came with a cool carrying case. It’s ingeniously designed so that it’s a 3d triangular prism when your glasses are in them, to protect them; but folds down neatly to a flat package that fits easily in your bag when you’re wearing the glasses. These carrying cases come free with all Topfoxx sunglasses, they’re good quality and a nice little extra.
