Von Zipper Snark Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Let me preface this by saying that while I am 100% in support of conservation efforts put forth to save our oceans and the wildlife they contain, I don't exactly condone some of the tactics that the Sea Shepherd has used in the past to do so. That being said, Von Zipper's partnership with Sea Shepherd is as ballsy as it is noble and perfectly executed, and thusly one I'll still wholeheartedly support.
Now, on to the sunnies themselves. They are Snarks. They fit perfectly. They look dope. They help save whales. Wearing them makes you feel tingly inside. And tingly outside too.
* called "Gnarwhale Navy," the Sea Shepherd colorway is a very dark, matte navy blue that looks black from a distance and in flat light (like the recycled VZ "Shift Into Neutral" collection), but turns a deep shade of blue when light hits it from behind. Just like the ocean. Get it? I've never called a pair of sunnies 'spectacular,' but if I did, I'd save it for these.
* made in Italy, if you're into that sort of thing

The Snark from VonZipper is not only stylish and bold but really comfortable for the amount of coverage they offer. Especially the bridge area, you don't even notice whereas similar shapes from other brands tend to cause pressure and leave red marks on your face after wearing them for fifteen minutes. I have a dark green chrome lens and the chrome is so dark that nobody can look in. On the durability front, the hinges never loosen and I have dropped them plenty of times with no breakage or chipping. I would recommend the Snark for any snowboard, skate, or surf types who want a casual sunglass they can occasionally get active in.

I got these VZ's because I think they have that classic Ray Ban look while keeping a more modern appeal. Let's face it, big thick side frames are played out! Gotten a lot of compliments on these shades so far from peeps of all different walks of life. Comfort is decent. If you have a wide bridge for your nose, I would not sport these (or most VZs). Lenses are pretty dark, but the vision clarity is outstanding!

Ordered several pairs of glasses so that I could try on all of them together and then make my choice. The Snarks won! They are really light weight and still manage to feel solid in your hands. Made in Italy. Not as big as the Vonzipper Elmore. I have a large face and the Snarks fit it well. Definitely going to be buying another pair but in what color?

I love these sunglasses. They block out the sun wonderfully, but don't hinder your vision as a cheap pair of sunglasses would do. In fact they tend to enhance everything in bright sunlight. They fit very well and are snug on the face. They are a little bigger than the picture may imply, but big sunglasses are the style now so rock 'em and love 'em!

I really like the fit of these glasses. I bought the Frosteez limited edition Blue Astro Chrome color. I love the color of the mirrored lenses and the visual clarity is pretty good. I have not had a pair of non-polarized glasses in a long time but these definitely are doing the trick.

Chase Skidmore at Backcountry.com on 07/31/2012
Great pair of sunglasses. I have a fairly large head and these glasses are large enough to fit perfectly (similar to the sizing of the Papa G's but with more squaring). I also have a pair of the Electric Knoxville sunglasses which these are fairly similar to. Very comfortable as well.
Ben B - customer at Zappos.com on 08/02/2013
I bought my husband these sunglasses, and he loves them. They look great on him and seem to be of good quality. The only thing I'd complain about is that they don't come with a hard case, just a cloth one, but a lot of mens sunglasses don't.
Charise L - customer at Zappos.com on 09/13/2011

fit my face perfect, and seem to fit just about anyones face. the face melt lenses look great. the hinge, lens, and frame are all insanely durable, and with dog funks pricing, they are completely irresistible. get some.

I got the green ones when they were still in stock. Absolutely love them. Fit great on the nose and don't slide around at all. Polarized lenses are sick. I get complements on these shades all the time.

Negative Reviews:

I have had the glasses for about a month now and the paint on the inside is already comming off. DON'T BUY THEIR NOT TOP QUALITY LIKE 85$ SUNGLASSES SHOULD BE!!!
