Welcome To Riedel
'The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make'. (Quote: Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate)
'The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty'. (Quote: Time Magazine)
Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. Make a journey through our world of glasses and senses.

The glasses themselves are rather thin - much like Riedel's wine glasses. In other words, they are fragile. I suspect repeated filling and emptying ice cubes in the things will eventually break them if you're not too careful. I wouldn't let a child use them - they wouldn't survive too many bounces across a table top.
If you have a friend who is addicted to Coke, these would make a fine novelty gift. Now that I've tried them, I'm not sure I would have purchased them.
Here is my honest opinion...
They are expensive for what you get. The glass is pretty thin and I had a few people mistake the glass for plastic. I honestly feel they are way overpriced.
As far as taste goes, I really didn't notice anything. I feel that this glass forces the soda to hit the center of your tongue and I don't believe that allows for the full flavor of the cola to be experienced. In my experience, to really enjoy Coca-Cola at least, you need to have it hit your whole tongue. You can't get that drinking Coke from a can, bottle, or with a straw; you have to have a glass with a wider mouth. Also Coke has to be at the right temperature so you must have ice cubes in your glass. Not too many that it waters it down but at least three. I actually don't like Coke without ice cubes because I think it is too sweet that way.
I'm still keeping these glasses. They are not bad at all but they aren't anything special either. They do look elegant though. I like to call them Coca-Cola wine glasses.
I'm attaching a picture of the glass that I use that I feel is the best shape to drink with Coca-Cola as I believe it lets all the flavors to come out. I personally bought it at a grocery store for under five dollars. Look at the overall size difference and the size of the mouth.
Handling the glass, I get a sense of sturdiness even though it is really thin. When first pouring a can of seltzer water at a steady rate that is room temperature and not shaken up, the bubbles seem to dissipate when the level reaches the middle of upper bowl like curvature. When pouring the same type of can in a standard glass with no curvy shape, it tends to overflow. I tried it multiple times and am a bit amazed. It doesn't work 100% of the time if I pour too fast, but more than enough times that I notice. Drinking from the glass gives a somewhat upscale refined feeling due to the premium quality of the glass. The taste difference is ever so slight, but a favorable one to me. Don't get me wrong, it is not dramatic enough that that alone is worth buying these glasses.
The feeling of drinking from this fine glass is the driving factor for me to use this glass over any other in the cupboard. Though they are sturdy, I am well aware they are very delicate and already chipped one. Yes, they are a bit expensive especially for soft drinks, but for the equivalent of buying a cup of fancy coffee (I got these for less than $10 for 2), I'd skip coffee purchases just to have these any day. Simply, these are my favorite glasses for seltzer water. I started experimenting with them with beer and feel even more satisfied I have these!
