The Wall of Glass is one of the most striking frames produced by Zenni in recent years. It came in three colors: tortoise shell, white and this red version. The silver metal arm decoration is elegant. I ordered this pair with my life partner Nel in mind, so it made sense to have the frame fitted with her quite strong prescription for long distance. The frame is really wide so I expected the standard 1.57 lenses would be "thick as a brick". Zenni sometimes bevels the edges of the lenses if the glasses can't be folded up neatly for their journey to Europe. But this time there was no need for that as the shape of the frame provided enough space. Lens thickness at the sides is 15 millimeters, hence the nickname "Wall of Glass".
