SALT Optics Review: LODIN Sunglasses

This post would not have been possible without Katy H’s AMAZING ability to entertain a crowd while supporting local businesses.

I recently attended a Yelp Elite LADIES event at Eyeballs in Queen Anne, Seattle, Wash. The store has an impressive assortment of frames from many brands including (but not limited to):

• 141 Eyewear (Portland, OR)
• Andy Wolf (Austria)
• Black Fin (Italy)
• Carter Bond (Sydney)
• Europa (USA)
• Fysh (London)
• Gotti (Switzerland)
• Humphrey (Germany)
• Intrigue (NYC)
• Jono Hennessy (Australia)
• Kala Eyewear (California)
• Menizzi (New York, NY)
• NW77th (St. Louis, MO)
• O&X (New York, NY)
• ProDesign (Denmark)
• Roger (The Netherlands)
• Rudy Project (Italy)

Eyeballs is a one-of-a-kind boutique eyewear store for men and women. The walls are filled with unique frames that are funky and fun! They definitely catered to the quirkiness that is Seattle, Washington! We enjoyed St. Germain cocktails and dined on mini cupcakes and veggie, cheese and meat platters, took photo booth photos and have nothing but fun! Towards the end of the night, we received grab bags (which included eye exams…what???) and the Eyeballs team conducted a raffle! Yours truly was a lucky raffle winner of a pair of FRAMES of my choosing!

I browsed their sunglasses selection and what drew my attention were the SALT Optics Lodin sunnies (retail $415). They were only $320 at Eyeballs! Compared to the retail price on their webstore, buying them at Eyeballs is truly a great deal!

Quick Recap of SALT Optics LODIN:

  • SUPER stylish. I can feel people’s eyeballs on my sunnies as I walk by. Or maybe because I am the only person wearing glasses in Seattle at this time of the year. Maybe they think I’m hot shit. Yeah, let’s just keep it at that…
  • Love the two-tone frames. So unique and classic!
  • Comfortable – for having an Asian non-existant bridge, the sunglasses do not slide down my flat nose. The temples wrap tightly around the side of my head and fit my ears perfectly. They are anything but uncomfortable. They’re also made in Japan.
  • Durable construction – I can sleep in these frames and they won’t break (just assuming because they’re so well made).

I absolutely love my sunglasses! I quickly ditched my Ray Ban aviators for these puppies. I’ve been wearing them with every sliver of sunshine that Seattle gives us. I will probably even whip them out in the event that artificial light seems blinding. <<insert vampire hiss>>

Definitely check this place out! They accept many types of health care and you won’t be disappointed with their customer service and selection. You’re bound to leave their with a pair that you L-O-V-E.
