These are the classic Shuron Freeway frame in a beautiful, traditional top to bottom fade. These are brand new, though they're same as they've always made them: keyhole bridge, flared hornrims, rectangular silver shields on the fronts and sides, and strong 5 barrel hinges. Real classics.

Temples are measured to their full length, hinge to tip, as though they were straightened out. Why? Because they're adjustable, so measurements to the bend vary. Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.

The Freeway comes in other colors, too. There are tortoise, clear, brownsmoke, demi-grey and, of course, basic black. They also have a cable temple option available in silver or gold. They're what Shuron calls their ''Aztec cable''.

All frames are thoroughly inspected before leaving the Attic. I'm thorough about condition so there are no surprises and your glasses will be in top condition. These frame make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
