Genusee Reviews


I bought my pair on a trip to Detroit a couple years ago. They are still going strong. The plastic has a bit more give than some glasses offer so maybe that is why they are holding up well.


More colors.

I have never received so many compliments on these - the frames are great, really amazing customer service, and a great mission.

As a Michigan native, I was thrilled to see a circular economy product coming out of Flint, a community ravaged by racism and government indifference. Do I love that the Genusee founder is a rich white woman from the affluent Detroit suburbs? No. But I will support their efforts to revitalize a small part of the Flint economy. As for the glasses, I love the classic shape and variations in frame and lens color. I even splurged on a pair of reading glasses as a gift to my mother (a nurse who has worked in community health in Flint).


Waiting on more designs!
