Each pair is priced between US$440 to US$625

Spoiler alert: James Bond will be throwing shade at baddies wearing a pair of these in the 25th edition of the 007 franchise. Barton Perreira has created three swanky models which will also be worn by other lead characters in No Time to Die, meaning Daniel Craig won’t be the only one looking all suave in the action scenes. The good news for us normal folks trying to cop some coolness from Bond is that we can also obtain a pair as they already go on sale before the movie’s April launch date. The manufacturer worked together with the film’s costume designer to choose the right frames for the co-branding, resulting in a rectangular framed option along with a rounded tortoiseshell version and a titanium aviator. And it won’t burn too large of a hole in your pocket either with prices ranging between US$440 to US$625. Superhuman strength and good looks are not included.
