Wallis Eyeglasses Review for Men and Women
Featuring tall and square-ish lenses, the series mimics the ‘Wayfarer’ style of eyewear. Warby Parker designed it with a professional outlook that gives your face a sophisticated flair. Sleek and minimalist framework provides a clean and lightweight appearance. With its retro influences, Wallis keeps it classic while maintaining an elegant modern style.
Assembled with a thin saddle nose bridge, the eyepiece sits in the middle of the nose to provide balance. Optimum grip and support are offered by the spacious bridge. Comfortable and adjustable nose pads prevent slipping. Taller lenses give room for your eyes to blink freely with no hindrance. While square spectacles suit oval, round and triangular faces, the series comes in a wide fit which is best suited for wider faces. Open up your horizons with Wallis, a modern take on the classic square.
Like most eyewear brands, measurements for Warby Parker glasses can be found on the inside of the temple arm. There you’ll find lens width (53 mm), bridge (20 mm), and temple length (145 mm). If you already have a pair that you like, you can compare it to those measurements.
- Frame width 138 mm: The horizontal diameter of the full frame width, and it’s the primary way we determine fit. (Note: You will not find this number on your glasses.)
- Lens width 53 mm: The horizontal diameter of one lens.
- Bridge 20 mm: The width of the bridge section.
- Temple length 145 mm: The length of the entire temple arm, from the front of the frame to the tip.
- Made from stainless steel and custom cellulose acetate
- Temple tips cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity
- Lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays
- Akulon-coated screws for durability
- Lenses made from polycarbonate, the most impact-resistant material for eyeglasses
- Anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating included
Wallis Design Details
Showcasing a timeless design with a trapezoidal silhouette, the frame enhances your look. A well-groomed browline runs parallel to your eyebrows, highlighting them. A stainless steel top rim adds radiance to your face and eyebrows. The bottom has a rimless curvature with transparent lenses which enhances the shape of your eyes and highlights your facial contours. Slim stainless steel arms add a subtle charm to the eyewear. Long and comfortable, acetate temple tips sit comfortably on the back of the ears. Both practical and fashionable, Wallis is the pair you’ll want to wear every day!
The frames are made from custom cellulose acetate and stainless steel. Cellulose Acetate is a biodegradable and plant-based material. It preserves the style, colors, and patterns of Wallis. Acetate frames are flexible, hypoallergenic, durable, and environmentally friendly. Stainless steel glasses are lightweight and robust; making them more resilient than plastic. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges enhance the durability of these frames. Polycarbonate, an impact-resistant material, keeps the glasses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. Manufactured with anti-reflective, anti-scratch coatings, the glasses enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes. All these features combine to make Wallis a lightweight and comfortable eye accessory to wear all day long.

Flecks of classic tortoiseshells on the temple tips give warmth to your overall persona. Bring your fashion statement to the next level with Wallis in Brushed Navy.
The socially conscious brand, Warby Parker, that gives back with its “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” initiative and designs reasonably priced designer eyewear, has recently released the Wallis collection. It is a part of Warby Parker’s “Framework” Edition that features semi-rimless eyeglasses bordered with polished metal. It has a square shape, influenced by 1950s fashion. Matt Bomer has worn a similar style to the premiere of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”.
