3 Reasons You May Not ❤️ Rockets

It may seem counterintuitive to give you reasons to not get Rockets, but we realize that ordering glasses online before trying them can take a leap of faith, and we want to help you make an informed decision.

To that end, here are the three most common reasons a small number of people—about 1 in 50—return their Rockets after trying them.

1. "They're too small (or big)."

Ideally suited to individuals with medium to medium-large heads, our Original frame size (53-20-145; 143 mm wide) offers a slightly oversized look. However, if you want bold statement-making frames, Rockets may be too understated.

On the flip side, some individuals have found Original too big, which is why we released Tailored (49-20-145; 136 mm wide) and Small (47-20-140; 132 mm wide).

2. "The shape doesn't suit me."

We believe that Rockets look great on a wide variety of faces. Our frame is based on the P3, a classic shape originally designed for U.S. soldiers during WWII and worn by Hollywood stars of the 1950s. But Rockets aren't for everyone, and you may not like them if you dislike roundish lenses.

3. "They still sit on my cheeks."

Our 12-mm-tall Raised Fit nose pads position the frame higher on your face and away from your cheeks. However, if your cheekbones are as high as your nose bridge, Raised Fit Rockets may not pass your smile test.
