This just in from Warby Parker, the social good startup making waves in the custom eyewear space: “There’s nothing we loathe more than seeing a cute dog in heinous glasses. That’s why we’re pleased to offer a
limited-edition Canine Collection featuring five of our classic vintage-inspired frames, each crafted from chew-resistant acetate in dashing hues… Whether burying bones, sniffing butts, or just gnawing on slippers, we believe that all dogs deserve the gift of sight.”

Starting today, the new spin-off company called “Warby Barker” will provide canine optical care with a new eye wearcollection truly worthy of man’s best friend. Each canine-inspired pair of glasses cost $95 (same price as their glasses for humans) and can be purchased at the link below.

Also, don’t miss the video… those guys at Warby Parker (and Barker) sure know how to have fun.
