Super ‘Ciccio’ Tortoise Glasses

I’ve been wanting some new sunglasses lately, something with a tortoise frame, and I think I found the perfect pair. These Cicio tortoise shell glasses by Super are almost perfect, with a big bold shape and a modest price tag, only $130. Now I just need to find these with colored lenses and they’ll be perfect!

You can get them soon over at Goodhood.

Found through tomburkulosis

    I wonder if you could turn these into prescription glasses?

    they do look prescriptable. in general, if a pair of glasses is expensive, they are probably prescriptable.

    bobby, if you buy a pair with clear lenses, and then take them to an optometrist they should be able to replace the clear lenses with a colour of your choosing.

    like those. but i’ve always thought that the retrosupers looked a bit too plastic.

    @Tony – Hahaha yes, you’re totally right. These are not made of REAL turtle friends.
