Madox Design Details
The classic and elegant flair of the angular-shaped Madox gives it an easygoing appeal. With an almost-flat browline, the top rim emphasizes your eyebrows. A softly rounded base enhances the angular traits of your jawline. These sunglasses incorporate an elongated front profile and distinctive lines that give a playful attitude to your looks. Finely groomed end pieces and angular corners keep the frame tucked in place. Sleek and robust temple arms extend to the gentle arch, hugging your ears and giving you a flattened profile. Madox is versatile enough to transition from a backyard barbecue to a beach party to a cocktail hour meetup without missing a beat.
Custom cellulose acetate is a biodegradable and plant-based material that is used to make these frames. Acetate frames are flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. It also helps Madox to retain its radiance, shape, vibrant colors, and patterns over time. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges provide durability to these sunglasses. The frames are polished repeatedly with a wheel to achieve a glossy finish. Madox’s complete acetate framework makes it lightweight and comfortable to wear all day. Non-prescription lenses use CR-39, which is half the weight of glass, making them easy to carry. These premium polarized lenses, made with CR-39, ensure maximum color intensity and clarity. Prescription lenses use Polycarbonate, which is an impact-resistant material that keeps glasses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. The sunglasses are treated with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings that enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
