Review: Etnia Barcelona

Etnia Barcelona is an independent eye wear company that really pushes innovation in their product. They use innovative technology to get the most out of their product. The lenses used by Etnia are “the most technologically advanced in the world, made by Barberini SpA in Italy.” Their designs are vast, with a little something for everyone – they offer a variety so expression is possible from something as usual as a pair of sunglasses for anyone and everyone. Etnia Barcelona represents quality, innovation, and expression, succeeding across the board. After speaking with the good people over at Etnia, we decided on these pair pictured above to review.

Everyone has owned something cheap, for whatever reason it may be. Whether its because its not worth the investment in your eyes or that it is something you think you’ll abuse so you don’t want to waste the money – lets call this cheap product a pair of sunglasses. But, when you feel a quality well-made pair of sunglasses, and they fit and feel like nothing you have ever put upon the bridge of your nose…..ah, that is a good feeling – similar to that time you upgraded that ill-fitting department store suit with that #menswear-approved shit from Italy. That’s the feeling I had when I put on these shades from Etnia. As soon as I had them in my hands, I was in aw. I’ve owned a lot of cheap sunglasses in my life, and I have slightly upgraded from time to time, but nothing even touches what Etnia is producing.

There were so many options that it was damn near impossible to choose, but I had an idea of what I wanted so I went with this pair. These pair feature: Natural mineral glass lenses “providing the clearest sight in the world”, shock resistant with anti-scratch and anti-static electricity treatment, and triple-layer anti-reflective interior. When I was first looking at these pair online, I was question the contrast color at the top of the glasses, but it honestly provides a pretty cool visual depth that just adds uniqueness to them.

As you can see, I don’t really have anything bad to say about my new pair of Etnia shades. They are hands down the best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned. They are sturdy, comfortable, seem like they can take a bit of beating, and just overall are pretty awesome. Kudos to Etnia, as they have won me over.

A thank you to the people at Etnia Barcelona for allowing me the opportunity to review a pair of shades!
