Warranty And Returns

We are committed to ensuring your long-lasting enjoyment of your Black Shades and promoting sustainable practices. To support this, we offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects for all frames. This warranty allows you to see through any manufacturing issues, ensuring your continued satisfaction. However, please note that normal wear and tear is not covered under this policy.

When the time comes to retire your Black Shades after many years of use, we kindly ask that you participate in our eco-friendly initiative by returning them for upcycling. We believe in reducing waste and giving new life to old sunglasses.

Warranty Process

To initiate the warranty process, please follow these steps:

  1. Capture a few clear pictures showcasing the defects present in your Black Shades.
  2. Email the photos to MamaBear@Black-Shades.com, our dedicated warranty team.
  3. Include the following information in your email:
  • Your original order number
  • The email address you used on the Black Shades website
  • The shipping address for the new pair of shades

Once we receive your email and confirm the defects, we will promptly begin processing your replacement pair. We prioritize quick resolution to ensure you receive your new shades as soon as possible.

At Black Shades, we strive to be environmentally conscious, and your contribution to upcycling old sunglasses is greatly appreciated. By participating in our initiative, you play a vital role in creating a more sustainable future.

To be eligible for a full refund, please ensure that your shades are unused and in their original packaging. We kindly ask that you take responsibility for shipping them back to us within 30 days from the delivery date. If your original order was about $50, free return shipping will apply.
