I think with proper adjustment, they'll be fine, but it's taken a little getting used to.
I've done almost exactly the same. I wore Oakley wires in high school. After college and starting my career I wanted more "mature" sunglasses. I purchased the Bonds Persols based on forum suggestions and trying them on multiple times in store. I purchased them at FramesDirect, but remember to use the forum link at the top of the screen instead of the direct link in order to support the forum.
I'm still semi-undecided about the Bonds Persols (I've worn them twice aside from trying them on in store). Sometimes I love them and other times I don't. I guess thats the way I am will all my clothes though. Being 1/2 asian I also have high cheek bones and a smaller nose bridge. Like you, I'm having to get used to the heavier frame compared to wire sunglasses and my VERY light Mykita glasses.
