We met Westward Leaning at Capsule NY a few months back, and now giving you a look at their newest frame update- the clear version of the Mercury Seven. Westward Leaning makes use of one frame style with an endless combination of colors and lenses to create a number of distinct models. Each of the frames features a unique material inlay in the arms which ties into an organization or charitable cause. From the purchase of a pair of sunglasses, a donation will be given to the cause associated with that model. The result is great style benefiting a number of great causes.
The original Mercury Seven style used a black frame with an aluminum inlay. The updated style continues to use aluminum, but changes the frames to a matte clear gray finish with three possible lenses. We love that the matte finish is darker than the clear frames used by brands like Oakley and the blue lenses have a subtle mirror finish. The cause is one of our favorites as well- The National Science Teachers Association. So jump on Westward Leaning's website and scoop yourself a pair of the new Mercury Seven frames for $165.
Note: The frames below with grey and bronze frames below are updates to the Color Revolution style, which will be available soon for Fall/ Winter
