Maybe it's me, but the old days of Carrera Sunglasses, when the frames and the glasses were substantial, seem to be long gone. For some reason these glasses appeared a little flimsy, to much plastic?, and even though they claimed a 68mm eye, they were a little uncomfortable for me to wear. I do have a need for large glasses, and most brands, sadly, do not make them all that large. The newer Carreras are so different from the solid ones I enjoyed in the past, so much in fact, that I had to switch my loyalty to newer brands, and also had to find a decent website where they actually give you all the measurements and explains each as well (eye, bridge, temple), so a buyer can make an informed decision. Most vendors just show the sunglasses and will not tell about the fit, and we all know there are different fits. One of the best (considered the best by a 2013 poll) sites to shop for right sizes is framesdirect.com, where they are so thorough that eventually one can learn and find exactly what they need. It is also very important to make sure that wherever one buys from that they are Authorized Dealers of the brand. There are just too many places out there, but not all are by the book, and if one wants the real deal is worth taking the time (by calling the manufacturer if applicable), to make sure one is buying the genuine brand.
Polarized glasses is also a consideration and they tend to cost a little more, but most individuals would benefit from a polarized pair, and of course 100 % UV Protection. This pair of Carrera CARERRA Ca5530S Aviator Sunglasses,Black,Blue Frame,Grey Multi Deg Lens,One Size, were returned. Bought a pair of Police (72mm eye) that looked nice and big, good for driving. Also a pair of Maui Jim Middles (72mm eye). The website framesdirect.com has a sister site right on their website, that caters to the military personnel (active, retired, veteran, spouse, etc.) and the prices are about 30 to 40% lower, so even if someone wants to buy and has no military affiliation I am sure they would know someone that is, and will save a lot of money for the genuine brands (afeyewear.com), this information does not take away from amazon being my favorite online store of all times, but saving real money is always a good thing, and being able to find a very decent pair of sunglasses without having to work too hard, even better. 3 Stars.

Swagg!!! Best price ever,excellent sun blocker,perfect eye fit,timeless frame shape,if you want eye comfort and an upper scale brand-go with "Carrera" -you don't need the car to match!!

I like the sunglasses, they look GREAT, but I'm not sure if it's an original Carrera Product. It didn't come with something to clean the glasses

These came in the mail the other day and I opened the case and was like wow these are huge!!! But not in a bad way at all like it sounds, these may just be my new favorite sunglasses. I have some 62mm Gucci Sunglasses and these are about the same size from top to bottom but the width of the Carerra's are a bit wider and cover more of the face around the area where your nose meets your face. They remind me of the Sunglasses the Terminator wore in the 1st Terminator movie lol. They are very very lightweight but solidly made and came with a nice hard plastic case. They don't bother my nose or face if I wear them all day or extended period's of time like some of my other shades. I just may have to delve into the other colors for sale here on Amazon. I do highly recommend these Sunglasses if you like really large shades. I bought the all black model.

I order the black red yellow with grey gradient lens, if your looking for a large size sunglass this is for you. This is my first carrera brand all of my sunglass are Oakley but this one is perfect size. For those who complain that it's made of plastic don't compare it to the careera back on t the 70's which is so heavy we don't want to hurt our ears and nose, even check it to the mall most of y them are kinda plastic, but this 5530 model I is the best large size sunglass.

Ordered these and the first pair I received, I was disappointed. Unfortunately the case was slightly scratched on the outside and dirty from the inside. They were supposed to be a gift so I couldn't give that as a present anymore. Luckily I was able to send them back to Amazon and get a replacement, only to receive ANOTHER imperfect case. I'm over it. I'm not sending it back. WASTE OF MONEY

These sunglasses look even better in person than they do in the picture. The fun colors go great with most outfits and I have received numerous compliments from people about them. They have held up very well after several months of use and are also very easy to clean. Would definitely buy this brand again.

Very nice color (blue), quality is top notch, well made in Slovakia for a reasonable price. Classic-modern style, lightweight and very secured for running or jogging. Lens is mirror finish and not to dark, I found it perfect for long use or interior use as well.

I call these my "movie screen" glasses, since they cover most of my face. If you aren't used to over sized glasses you probably will be overwhelmed. They are very bold, and require some bold features on your face as well. I absolutely love these!

This glasses were exactly what Alien wore in the movie "Spring Breakers". That was my Halloween costume and I figured I could probably wear these at the beach and pool parties. They are pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.
