Are you thinking of buying Ray-Ban, Gucci, or Persol sunglasses? We believe Peeq sunglasses are at least twice as good, here's why:
1. Peeqs are REVERSIBLE
Peeq has researched, developed, and patented the world's first reversible sunglasses, essentially turning every pair into two! Whenever you buy a pair of Peeq sunglasses, you're effectively getting two-for-one!
2. Peeq donates 1-for-1 protective sunglasses to children in need
From the outset, Peeq has established a direct link to supporting those in need. For every pair of Peeqs purchased, Peeq donates sunglasses to a person in need. All around the world, particularly in sunny regions, children are at greatest risk of suffering from eye and vision-related diseases stemming from harmful UV rays. In fact, it's estimated that 1 in 5 cases of cataracts, often causing blurred vision and blindness, can be prevented by wearing sunglasses. Pterygium, macular degeneration, and even eye cancer, can all be caused by the sun's harmful rays. For every pair of Peeqs purchased, we will ensure 1 child receives protective sunglasses!
3. Peeqs are always polarized
Other sunglasses brands make you pay more for polarized lenses. For example, Persol charges $310 for its cheapest polarized sunglasses vs. $260 for its non-polarized, an extra $50 on top of already expensive sunglasses just to get the best lenses. Gucci, Prada, Ray-Ban, they all charge extra for polarization.
Contrast that with Peeq, which only sells polarized lenses, and never charges extra.
4. The sunglasses industry is a quasi monopoly
The sunglasses industry is famous for being dominated by 1-3 mult-national conglomerates. For example, Luxottica owns the sunglasses brands for Armani, Brooks Brothers, Bulgari, Burberry, Chanel, Coach, Dolce & Gabbanna, Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Oakley, Persol, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada, Ray-Ban, Tiffany, Tory Burch, Valentino, Versace, Vogue.
The 2nd and 3rd largest companies own Banana Republic, Bobbi Brown, BOSS, Carrera, Dior, Fendi, Fossil, Givenchy, Hilfiger, Jimmy Choo, Juicy, Kate Spade, Moschino, Marc Jacobs, Pierre Cardin, Polaroid, Saks, Swatch, as well as Calvin Klein, Chloe, Columbia, DKNY, Etro, Karl Lagerfeld, Lacoste, Longchamp, Nautica, Nike, Nine West, Paul Smith, Salvatore Ferragamo, Victoria Beckham.
This explains why the sunglasses industry remains one of the highest gross-margin businesses in the fashion world, with companies almost always reaching 60% margins!
5. Peeq has cut out the middleman
Unlike established brick-and-mortar conglomerates, Peeq sells directly to the consumer, passing on all the savings. When you overpay for overpriced brands, you are supporting payments to highly-paid executives and covering the costs of their vast infrastructures. When you buy from Peeq, you're supporting an innovative grassroots company which supports children around the world, and you're getting a pair customized double-sided high-quality sunglasses sent directly to you!
6. Peeq is innovative, when you buy Peeqs you support innovation
The sunglasses you wear today are similar to the sunglasses worn for decades by your grandparents! Given the quasi-monopoly mentioned above, the big players have had little incentive to innovate and create better products. Which explains why there has been very little innovation, until Peeq came along! Peeq has spent years on R&D (research & development) to construct the world's firsst reversible sunglasses. Instead of buying 2 pairs of overpriced luxury sunglasses at $200-500 each or $1,000 total and having to keep track of two pairs of sunglasses, Peeq offers a 2-in-1 reversible pair for $188.88 and currently on sale for $88.88 - change the design at the flick of a wrist and support innovation!
