BUY ONE. GET ONE. GIVE ONE.

First + foremost—THANK YOU. Over the past few weeks, we have shifted a portion of our manufacturing efforts to producing certified medical-grade protective goggles + safety glasses for front line healthcare workers. PPE is in short supply globally, and eyewear is what we know best—so this felt like the clear way for us to contribute to the global cause during these unprecedented times.

Community is always Quay for us—so it was important to include + empower you. To distribute as many pairs as possible, we offered a BUY ONE, GET ONE, GIVE ONE program on all of our global Quay sites from April 10th-13th, with each purchase representing an additional eyewear donation. As a result, we are proud to announce a donation of over 30,000 pairs of eyewear to be distributed to front line healthcare workers across the globe, from the US to Australia to Europe. We’re overwhelmed and filled with gratitude by your emphatic support of our effort, and are so grateful for the opportunity to distribute thousands of pairs of goggles + glasses to institutions like:

 

Mount Sinai Health System, New York, NY

NYU Langone Hospital, New York, NY

UCLA Health, Los Angeles, CA

Jefferson Health, Philadelphia, PA

Methodist Hospital, Omaha, NE

Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Orange, CA

Swedish Medical Center, Englewood, CO,

Mercy Medical Center, Merced, CA

Royal Melbourne Hospital ED, Victoria, Australia

Original vs Minis: What’s the difference

We love an oversized sunnies moment, but sometimes the outfit or occasion doesn’t call for a shade blocking shield. 

Whether you’re looking to add a more everyday pair of sunnies to your wardrobe or you have a smaller face shape, you don’t always have to go big. That’s where our minis come in.

Minis are the styles you know and love, like HARDWIRE, but sized down to flatter more face shapes and show off another side to your selfie.

Check out some of our fave mini styles in sunnies and bluelight, and see if you can spot the difference.


Hardwire Mini: Height: 45mm Width: 142mm  |  Hardwire OG: Height: 50mm Width: 147mm 

HARDWIRE MINI is the same easy-to-wear, classic square shape that makes them one of our bestsellers—just sized down in every way for a smaller face or just a smaller fit. On the flip side, if you often find glasses too small for your face, our OG sizes are great for bigger faces or those who prefer a larger fit. And the cherry on top—HARDWIRE or HARDWIRE MINI blue light frames are prescription-ready, so you can take them to your optometrist and have your prescription put in. 

 


All In Mini: Height: 52mm Width:144 |  All In OG: Height: 56mm Width: 151mm

Have you always wanted an aviator shape, but the size stops you from adding to cart? Try ALL IN MINI. Going small never looked so good. 

 

(L) THE PLAYA OG Height: 54mm Width: 147mm | (R) THE PLAYA MINI Height: 54mm Width: 147mm

Players need mini frames too, and that’s why we love THE PLAYA MINI. They keep all the mega glam style you want from an aviator shape without going too big or heavy. 

 


Mini: Height: 48mm Width: 146mm | Regular: Height: 51mm Width: 145mm

Or are you after a pair of cat eye sunnies that put an exclamation point on your outfit without overwhelming you? Put on REINA MINI. This modern take on the cat eye packs all the sass of REINA, but is scaled down, and perfect to wear everyday.


Want to be sure minis are for you? Take our face shape quiz, or stop by your local Quay shop to see them IRL. 

 

 Xo,

Quay
