I guess my follow-up question to you would be: can one wear glasses (without nose-pads) without them sliding down if one has a very small nose? If so, what styles would that open up? You said glasses with nose-pads are often metal... if I can get past nose-pads without the glasses sliding down my nose, that would open up plastic frames and more, right?
I see what you mean, although, to be fair, there's nothing particularly outstanding to single that brand out from many others in their price range.
Glasses sliding down your nose would tend to indicate a poorly fitting frame, or a badly adjusted one.
A skilled optician has quite a few methods at their disposal to fine tune the fit to ensure comfort and stability but a correctly sized frame (especially with regards to bridge width, overall width and temple length) is important from the start.
If lack of nose-pads is no longer a deal breaker, then you're opening up to the entire gamut of 'Plastic' frames, which generally allows for chunkier styles and more varied/exotic colours and finishes.
